Thanks for all the great feedback about our recent publicity for SaintsforSinners.com from Annette Sisco, the Features Editor at the New Orleans Advocate Newspaper, "Believe It" in the front page of its "Eat, Pray, Live" section of the paper and also from Television Reporter Susan Roesgen at WGNO TV here in New Orleans. It has been so nice to hear from you with the nice comments about their coverage! We appreciate them and you!
Hello everyone. We are happy to announce that we have received some great press for TouchdownJesusMedals.com and SaintsforSinners.com from The New Orleans Advocate. The article, "Believe It," was printed in the Sunday, October 19, 2014 issue of The Advocate, and was written by Features Editor Annette Sisco. You can view the entire article at this link: Believe It, and you are welcome to leave a comment.
Some have asked us to find more of the smaller medals, and we can now say we have found several different styles of the tiny medals (see above image), including: Saint Anthony, The Holy Spirit, Saint Christopher, Crosses, The Miraculous Medal, Infant Baby Jesus, and others that have not yet arrived. They will be on the web site soon ~ www.saintsforsinners.com and also on the Saints for Sinners Facebook Page, SaintforSinners Twitter Page, SaintsforSinners Instagram, and anywhere else you ask us to place them (you can click the links on the bottom of the page).
" Stop the Presses " - We Have Big News! We are finally re-introducing our new and improved Fleur-De-Lis designs at www.SaintsforSinners.com. It is and was originally a Holy Spirit medal, "disguised" as a fleur-de-lis in various colors; including, black and gold, purple and yellow or gold, green and white, etc... and they can be customized to complement your personal style or you could get them in the colors of your favorite sports teams, schools and the like.
If you are in or near New Orleans and are looking for something to do on Saturday night, May 31st, (In Other Words, Very Soon!) Rob has been invited to be the guest speaker at The Megaphone Show sponsored by The New Movement Theatre and hosted by Jonathan Evans.
Good Morning and to those who are opening this on the April 20th, Happy, Happy Easter! We have a nice gift for you today to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ!
The response from yesterday's SaintsforSinners.com e-mail offering souvenirs from the upcoming Pope John Paul II Canonization in Rome has been fantastic. We are happy to send the Rosaries that will be blessed by Pope Francis in Vatican Square and mail the postcards, and try to fulfill all requests you make!
In late April we are very excited to be going to Rome for Pope Francis I 's Canonizations of Pope John Paul II and Johannes Paulus XXIII. We will also be hunting for new medals to add to our line-up and gathering photographs to share at www.SaintsforSinners.com.
It's hard to believe All Saints Day and All Souls Day have come and gone, and it is mid-November already and Christmas is just around the corner! We wanted to get a newsletter out on All Saints Day, but couldn't get it done in time.
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.
A few of you have regretfully asked us to hide the song on our homepage ( Paul Sanchez's excellent "All Are Welcome in Heaven") because at least 2 of y'all "got caught" going to the SaintsforSinners web site at work because the song blared out!" Sorry about that! We hid the song! You can buy it on www.itunes.com.
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.
