With our own custom Super Saints artwork for over 60 Saints, I’m pleased to be able to add new Saints Stamps to the shop as they are requested by customers. I was happy to include the St Benedict medal graphic behind St Benedict’s head. It almost looks like a very specialized halo.

Equipping Catholic Families…to live liturgically this LENT!

Can you believe that Ash Wednesday is just next week? Every year I start off in pursuit of the best Lent evaa (queue any one of my kids quoting Matt Kelly) and I start out with resolutions for giving up things, taking on things and elaborate programs for my kids.

Equipping Catholic Families with a NEW Hands-On Prayer-packed Craft Kit for LENT!

So, even though I have 50 Cathletics Craft Kits in my Arma Dei Shoppe, it’s hard to believe that I don’t actually have one craft kit dedicated to LENT!  Well, that is, until NOW!

Hands-On Lenten Pack of Prayers

This craft kit focuses mainly on the Stations of the Cross, the Rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet and offers more inventive ways to get kids hands-on praying! Prayers are counted as beads are colored or laced up with a shoelace! Our Super Saints illustrations are kid-friendly and enticing and help to focus our prayers just a little bit more! Plus, they’re just fun to look at!

Book Review: The Sacred That Surrounds Us: How Everything in a Catholic Church Points Us to Heaven


I’m so excited about this book!

This is a beautiful 125 page Catholic reference book as beautiful as any photographic coffee table book. It explains the historical and symbolic significance of each vessel, vestment, linen, devotional, Church furnishing and architectural component found within a Catholic Church. Each sacred article is presented with exquisite photography and meticulously described with infused Catholic teaching to relay the deeper meaning and ethereal qualities and purposes from our rich Tradition and Faith. As we learn more about these vessels, vestments and articles within the sacred spaces of our Church, we can come to a better appreciation of the beauty and significance they lend to the remarkable Sacraments we receive. This book will help to foster reverence and awe within the Faithful, as we are called to approach the Altar of the Lord.

The Word of the Lord: A Child’s First Scripture Verses by Katie Warner and illustrated by Meg Whalen is a delightful little board book introducing little ones to Scripture. Each of the eleven verses of Scripture is paired with a simple and inviting illustration, with bright colors and durable board book pages. The verses selected are key to our Catholic Faith: perfect references to memorize as they guide us to live in virtue and remind us of God’s profound Love for each one of us.
