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.
