We are adding more stories. We didn’t realize so many were missing… thank you for noticing and letting us know– they are going up today and for the next week they will keep going up as fast we can add them – plus, we are writing more.
Here’s just a short note and update with some very exciting news, along with some very cool photographs! Yesterday, I spoke with the folks at Paperwhite Stationery Boutique in Baton Rouge. Kathryn and Alisa ordered more medals, after their store was only open for two weeks!
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.
October 4th is the Feast Day of Saint Francis of Assisi, well known and revered as the patron saint of animal lovers and ecologists. He was canonized as a saint by in 1228 by Pope Gregory IX.
We received the coolest letter last week. It was from an 11 year old boy named Nicholas! His Mom, Marie, is active with the Troops of Saint George, and we noticed she had written a post about our Saint Richard of Chichester medal, our patron of "NASCAR" and invoked for safe racing!
The Inernational day of Peace was September 20, 2013. Saint Barnabas the Apostle is often referred to as "the Peacemaker," so he is the perfect saint to ask for an intended peaceful and prayerful intercession.
While we were in Dubrovnik, Croatia, outside of Medjugorje mountain, our phone rang.... A man from Hollywood was calling to ask if we would allow his production company to use some of our new "Saint Francis of Assisi - inspired hand-painted bird houses" to be featured in an upcoming movie from MGM that was filming in New Orleans.
