Way to Happiness
Originally published in 1953, this short but powerful book was written by Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen as a pastoral guide to finding peace and hope in this life, and eternal happiness in the life to come. With chapters on a variety of topics – from Work and Love, to Children and Giving, it offers valuable insights as to how we’re called to “fight the good fight” while keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus.
This beautifully simple rosary is comprised of olivewood beads and a brown cord, with a comfort cross hanging from the center. It is handmade by artisans in Bethlehem.
Catholic Doctrine Playing Cards
Artfully crafted by Fr. William Armstrong, this standard deck of playing cards has been designed to teach different elements of Catholic doctrine while being used for a variety of games. Featuring the Ten Commandments, the Mysteries of the Rosary, and more, these cards provide an innovative way for gameplayers to learn more about Catholicism.
Blessings Bell Christmas Ornament
Made from solid brass, this delicate bell ornament hangs from a white satin ribbon and includes a resin holly accent charm. Whether it’s for yourself or a friend, this ornament will make a beautiful addition to anyone’s Christmas décor!
Italian Ladybug Rosaries
The name of the ladybug originated in the Middle Ages, when the people of Europe prayed to the Blessed Virgin Mary to help save their crops. Tradition holds that she answered by sending the ladybug to eat the pests, and the crops were saved. Now, with this Italian glass ladybug jewelry, you can call on Our Lady as you reflect on her provision for the faithful. Beads measure 8 millimeters in diameter.
