On “Shepherding” and Guess Where We Have Mailed Our Hand-Painted Saint Medals, Necklaces and Stories Since the Last Newsletter!
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!
A Repeat – Please Disregard/DO NOT OPEN/Delete if you Already Received Newsletter Yesterday About Price Reductions & Harmonizing Saints
Yesterday, I sent out a newsletter to a few people and was asked why I didn’t send it to everyone. So, I thought about it and decided to send this newsletter to everyone.
Actually, Really, Honestly, A Very Short Note & a New Old Policy is Back in Motion, for as Long as Possible….
Hi – Some of you will recall when we first started this little company, back on June 11, 1996. We had 2 hand-painted Saint Medals and Stories, Saint Christopher & Saint Sebastian. They were on laminated rectangular story cards with necklaces attached. We gave them away at a birthday party on City Park Avenue. Gosh, if you have one of those cards, please return it!
Saint Valentine’s Day is coming very, very soon! Here’s to love and all that it brings to our lives. Go ahead and put some Bay Leaves in your pillow on Saint Valentine’s Day. You may have some very pleasant dreams….
The environmental crisis is a crisis for which we are all responsible. Perhaps everyone does not view it from the same perspective as a saint or pope but we all bear some responsibility and we must recognize and take responsibility.
A QUICK REMINDER! For those of you in New Orleans, don’t forget about the Saint Joan of Arc Parade and Fete on January 6th in the French Quarter. It’s a celebration of Joan of Arc, the Maid of Orleans, birthday!
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!
www.SaintsforSinners.com and I have started to receive the Self Addressed Stamped Envelopes ( “SASE” ) from readers. I am excited to be able to send out souvenirs from our trip, as I have done so many times in the past.
I'll be writing here regularly, reminiscing about our past, commenting about the present, and offering news and updates for the future. Please check back from time to time to read our new posts, help us recall the history of SaintsforSinners in words and pictures, and learn about our new plans and events.
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.
As many of you may know, coming up on Saturday September the 27th, 2015, Pope Francis I will be coming to the USA for the "World Meeting of Families Celebration" in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In honor of his visit we are extending a first time wholesaler offer.
