Returning from Rome ~ Postcards on Their Way ~ SASE Gifts
Your gifts will be mailed soon, we will be sending colorful chaplets, intricate four-way crosses, rosaries, scapulars, cards, and saint medals, of course. Plus, communion wafers blessed by Pope Francis I (more on that later). The chaplets are our favorite gift to send. They are multi-colored and we may be adding some extra flair by replacing their small silver crosses with brightly enameled crosses we bought.
Upcoming Canonizations in Rome on May 15, 2022!
Blessed Charles de Foucauld will finally become Saint Charles! 350 members of his family will be there to celebrate. It’s not certain what Pope Francis and his Cardinal friends will decide about specific patronages for Saint Charles. Saints’ patronages typically evolve organically, it seems.
Who’s That Saint Contest Result “And The Winner Is ….” & A Brand New Contest For You Too!
OK, since NO ONE WON the last contest, we are doubling the prize for this next contest. Whoever guesses who all of the saints are in this next set of photographs will win two prizes and we will try to actually sent them to the winner from ROME and HOPEFULLY FROM THE VATICAN POST OFFICE. I can’t guarantee we will be able to do it, because I don’t know if the post office at the Vatican is open! Hopefully it is!
We are very surprised by the interest in sales of the flood medal crosses!
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!
WARNING: THIS IS A PRETTY LONG NEWSLETTER - A RECAP OF MY TRIP TO ROME FOR THE CANONIZATIONS
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….
Ciao! I'm off to Rome!
Here’s our last note before we board the plane for the Canonizations at the Vatican this weekend. We’ve received your envelopes and taken notes and think we can find most the items you have requested. Emphasizing “most!”
What a Super Fantastic Response of Our Offer to Send Souvenirs from the Canonizations on October 13, 2019
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.
Anniversary date of Saint Teresa of Calcutta’s Canonization

Your Packages, Gifts, Offers, and News
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!
