When God calls you to greatness…have true courage. Joan of Arc is the patron saint of courage. More than bravery, her courage was that of giving herself whole-heartedly to God’s will.
For two days last week we were able to offer 20 women the opportunity to slow down and learn about the meaning of Lent with Fr. Charbel. We then painted our own beautiful journal covers guided by the talented local watercolor artist Suzy Cyr.
Sometimes it’s good to remember our story; to look back at where we started, how far we’ve come, and through it all, see God’s hand at work.
Lent begins in just a week. Are you ready? We’ve put together this guide with some of our favorite tools to help us along this blessed 40 day journey.
Ah isn’t love such a wonderful thing? I dare to say that love, by far, is the most Godlike ability and identity we have as human beings. We were created by God, who is love Himself, for love.
These wings, that you can see and touch, can remind you of things that you can’t see and touch: of your guardian angel…
“Icons are actually called prayers. So we’re actually wearing a prayer. While I’m working, my prayer is always that the eyes will draw you into a deeper devotion…” -Vivian/Iconographer. Read more about our unique and stunning iconic blessing pieces.
Saint Michael Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snare of the devil.
Surrounded by angels, Our Blessed Mother, the Queen of Heaven, holds her child, shining like the sun. Just so, she holds us close and keeps us safe in her protecting arms.
So last year my family hiked the first 120 kilometers of the Camino de Santiago and it was one of the most mentally challenging things I have ever done…
New blessings for a new year… Coming Soon! Take a sneak peek of our newest collection: Queen of Heaven – The Veil between Heaven and Earth.
In celebration of a personal milestone last year, I chose to walk a portion of the Camino de Santiago in Spain with my family. Along with my husband, our four children, a future son-in-law and daughter-in-law, and our family priest, we walked just under 100 miles in 7 days.
Where do I even begin. How can I sum up the eternal works of our Father in so few words. I could talk about the hundreds of men and women I met at the My Saint My Hero booth who brought joy into my days…
After a much-loved and appreciated Christmas break, most of us are back at work, school and ordinary life. Let us not be quick to forget our New Year resolutions, the blessings we received from the Infant Jesus, and the hope this new year brings. If you woke up this...
In the weeks leading up to this week of Advent we’ve focused on our misery, the darkness we live in, the need for our redemption, and the desire of our hearts to be rescued by a Savior. This week, however, just as the colors of the candles on the Advent wreath, our reflections take a turn, from longing to rejoicing. Gaudete!
There something about when we approach the Lord that we want to give him our best…of course we do. I want to play my best for Him. Of course you do… that’s awesome. That’s so great. But I’m going to invite you to do this new thing this Christmas. This Christmas don’t just give God your best, I want you to give God your worst.
Honestly my favorite gift for everyone is the Benedictine Blessing Bracelet because, like we hear over and over, “there’s just something about this bracelet” that makes people feel different, and they never want to take it off.
When I think of gift giving, my favorite part of it is sharing a new discovery that has meant a lot to me and something I can’t wait to give. And EVERYONE gets a BLESSING!!!
Christmas is a time to reflect on the true spirit of giving; a time to give what counts. Whether it be through one of our versatile and beautiful Blessing Bracelets (a great gift for everyone), or through another gift, I invite you to be the one to give a blessing this Christmas through your gift and presence.
Advent, which began on Sunday, is the beginning of the new year in the church. The word itself means coming. The Advent wreath is a beautiful opportunity for prayer as the candles are lit, especially together with the family. “The family that prays together…”
