We are happy to report that our local retailer, Little Miss Muffin , on Harrison Avenue in Lakeview is open and fully loaded with our SaintsforSinners medals and we will be stocking and restocking often since their store is only one mile away from our Studio!
Holy Thursday is upon us and then soon we will be participating in Good Friday and then celebrating Easter Sunday and the Resurrection. On Good Friday, folks in New Orleans typically have delicious boiled crawfish, adding corn, potatoes, garlic, mushrooms, onions, green beans, oranges, asparagus, and sometimes artichokes, if you get lucky!
This has been one of the most difficult newsletters to write. Angst. I’m basically feeling full of angst and frozen. Saint Charbel please perform another miracle and cure me from this paralysis. I’ve been reading and studying and trying to write about this coronavirus and everything I type looks crass and hopeless. That’s the bad news….
We have recently seen an increase in interest at SaintsforSinners for our Flood Medal Crosses (pictured above). These crosses have medals that were either recovered from after Hurricane Katrina, or medals that didn't quite make it through final inspection to sell. We are so excited that you like them!
I Simply HAD to send out this letter I received. It came yesterday - the day before the trip. It sort of astounded me - it is so nice and such a perfect “send off” for the trip. I cannot wait to send this “rainbow” kid, Henry, some items.
Today, September 5th, marks the Anniversary date of Saint Teresa of Calcutta’s Canonization, in Rome, at the Vatican, with Popes Francis and Benedict presiding.
This is just a short update about the packages we have begun mailing out from the Canonization - we sent out almost 100 yesterday so many could arrive today, tomorrow, or later in the week. However, we basically mailed in order of receipt of your requests and some of you made a few different requests! So, that means you will likely be receiving more than one package. Please give us another week before you think we may have made a mistake with your request, but if that turns out to be the case, just send us an e mail or give us a call and we will get things right.
We are sending a quick update to let you know we are back from our trip to Rome and Assisi. We found so many great items to share. The folks who ordered the free rosaries or ordered a Mother Teresa medal package will be receiving the Saint Teresa of Calcutta rosaries or hand-painted Saint Teresa medals very soon. We expect to be mailing everything on Monday, or if the Arch Angel Gabriel, patron of postal workers gives us a huge boost, this coming Saturday, September 17th.! But, knowing us, it will probably be Monday, September 19th, when they are all ready to be placed in transit. We're working hard to create nice packaging and we think you will be very happy with our teams' handiwork. Thank you, thank you, and thank you, for your kind words or encouragement and patience!
This is Brooks, from SaintsforSinners.com. I am sending this newsletter on behalf of Rob Clemenz, who is currently in Rome for the Canonization of Mother Teresa, to update you all on this special event and relay news that he has to share with you. He informed me that the Canonization ceremony was an incredible spectacle and when it concluded, "the Pope was reminiscent of Springsteen," circling the large crowd twice, showing some love in the famed pope mobile, as you can see illustrated in the picture below. There will be more photos to follow in our next newsletter.
We are pleased to inform you all that we have arrived in Rome, Italy for the Canonization of Mother Teresa and are eager to experience this majestic event. As luck would have it, we have already found a few new Mother Teresa medals in the short time we have been here. Also, Just for this special occasion, we have added a new link to the buy a medal page for the Blessed Mother Teresa.
We'd like to remind you that we will soon be on our journey to Rome for the Canonization of the Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, which will take place on September 4, 2016. While there, we will be hunting for new medals and on the lookout for interesting souvenirs to share with you, so stay tuned for updates, and if you'd like to follow our trip, join us on Instagram, follow us on Twitter, and share our Facebook page!
