Catholic gifts for a good cause

Thanks to Father Stephanos for the link to the Sisters of Carmel website. They sell a variety of Catholic gifts including rosaries, medals, holy water fonts, and rings as well as CDs, calendars and cards.

The sisters are a cloistered, contemplative order of Discalced Carmelites. They live lives of poverty, prayer and penance for the needs of the world. Their meals are meatless, and on Fridays, vegan.

The picture shows a traditional clothing ceremony of a newly professed sister.

Hey Dymph,
I didn't know how else to contact you, so here we go!

Here's the addy for the commercial with all those Catholics standing up to MJF's lies (OK, Kurt Warner is a fallen away Catholic, but he still has the indelible stamp of a Catholic Baptism on his soul!)

It is beautiful, isn't it? Reminds me of St. Rose of Lima.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
