A few more chapters of the book rob is working on have finally been finished and he has created a nice outline that’s possible to follow and begin moving further toward completion. So far, the stories of Saint Bernard, Saint Rosalie, along with Saint Maria Goretti, Dismas and the Miraculous Medal have weaved together fairly seamlessly. We offer thanks to the weaver’s saint, Anastasia, for helping us band anecdotes, undo knots, connect dots and whatnot to recall a simple story of a simple life. Again, with hopefulness and catharsis themed in a way that’s all kinds of exciting! Easy? No. Exciting? Yes!

Think about Saint Joseph this year. He will surely be a  referred to often, now that Pope Francis has made him "Saint of the Year." And now, you have a bit of cocktail party talk to share, six feet away, of course, with your friends, neighbors, family, and all those you encounter during the year.  The less celebrated ordinary people who, often unnoticed, may be a bit more “limelighted” this year than years before. As they should, every year.

We learned a bit more about Arch Angel Uriel, whose name refers to light. Like the new Saint John Henry Newman, he offers hope and says, “Lead Kindly Light.” We have only seen a rendering of Arch Angel Uriel once, in Budapest, Europe, and it was marbled and perfectly sculpted.

And some of those very people, the ones Pope Francis has embraced, will have the courage and self-respect, to walk back through the doors of their Church. And so, the lapsed, the marginalized, the men and woman feeling rejected by their religion, will finally be treated with the deserved respect, compassion, and sensitivity the Catechism of the Catholic Church has long demanded.

We are writing about Shepherding and the Good Shepherd, and also Shepherdess, Saint Bernadette and Our Lady of Lourdes, combined with the Shepherd adorned Pectoral Cross of Pope Francis and Saint Agnes holding a lamb. Oh, and Agnus Dei too! This is going to hopefully flow, believe it or not!

First, one of the funnier things that happened. I arrived and stayed on Borgo Pio Strada, one of my favorite streets because some of the stores call themselves “Religious Articles Factories.”  My favorite is “Comandini S.”  Except it was disappointing at first….

Look at the cards and letters we have already received. Rob is not even leaving until October 10th so it looks like he will be receiving even more. As we have said before, that’s OK, we are happy to and send some gifts or trinkets, that may or may not be Blessed by Pope Francis like they were when he went to the Saint Teresa of Calcutta Canonization a few years ago. We will all find out eventually. Some have asked for the deadline to request something by sending us a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope ( SASE ). The answer is truly As Soon As Possible ( ASAP ) because it takes a lot of time and work to get everything organized, planned, put together, mailed and on their way to you.

We hope everyone is transitioning nicely into the fall, unlike us down here in New Orleans who are sweltering away as if summer will never end! We are still reeling with excitement from having Pope Francis visit, and of course, we have our new special offer....
