Well, here I am finally...back after a lo-ong hiatus from writing & the very first thing I intend to do is post a link to a Catholic site that was sent to me by a reader & follower, Jinny, who is a recent convert to our Faith & who was kind enough to send this link to me & suggest that I check it out:
So far as I can tell, there is not a huge selection offered here, but I am assuming that is only because they are run by a small group, limited supplies of some things & other links within the site have nothing listed...but with that being said, of all the things that I did see, everything is strictly CATHOLIC! I like that alot!! lol...
I have never heard of the Scapular of St. Jude, but being a devotee, I would be willing to check it out...except that I already wear the Brown Scapular of Mt. Carmel...however, anything that promotes devotion to this most wonderful & kind-hearted Saint is good in my book!
There are other interesting & little-known offerings here as well, such as St. John's Wort blessed by Bl. Pope John Paul II, various chants on CD, a wooden Rosary blessed by His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI, and also blessed by him, a Scapular of St. Benedict. And a more popular & wide-spread devotional item is, of course, water from the Grotto @ Lourdes ~ one of my own personal favorites. *Our Lady has certainly helped my family out of several dilemmas whenever I have used Her sacramental, so this one is a HUGE deal to me.*
All in all, this site is surely worth a closer look for those who are looking for the unusual, strictly Catholic, items, some of which I don't think will be found anywhere else...so if you are so inclined, feel free to check it out! You just might find something here that is not offered anywhere else & which might be just the ticket for your own needs. :)
