For Babies And Toddlers
The Cozy Rosary was created out of desperation when mom and Fiat to Halo founder, Paige, was struggling to keep her kids engaged and sitting still during their family Rosary. It was when she eventually decided to embrace her children’s squirms that Paige dreamed up the idea of the Cozy Rosary, a walkable rosary blanket that allows children to prayerfully walk from “bead” to “bead” as the family prays. When you provide children with a rosary that allows them to learn through movement and wiggles, you’ll be amazed by how quickly they learn and fall in love with this beautiful prayer. And because the Cozy Rosary is a snuggly throw blanket, it also makes for a meaningful and unique gift for anyone on your shopping list. Edit: This blanket just arrived to include in our Giveaway winner’s package and describing it as cozy is not enough! It is incredibly soft and just the type of blanket you’ll want to wrap your
self…I mean, baby in all the time!

This famous peanut brittle, handmade by the Benedictine monks at Subiaco Abbey, is unlike any other peanut brittle out there! In fact, the Abbey brittle has become so popular that it is now packaged and shipped around the world. But what makes their brittle so good? The monks have discovered four secrets that make theirs the best in the nation:
- They use an extraordinarily large amount of peanuts in their recipe. A good peanut brittle, after all, should never skimp on the most important ingredient.
- Their brittle is never mass-produced. The monks’ cooking process consists of gradually heating the brittle mixture over the stove, resulting in a delicious blend of flavors.
- This recipe adds baking powder, producing a less dense and easier-to-chew texture.
- And lastly, the Abbey brittle does not contain dairy products. The monks have already made the best-tasting brittle around, so there is no need to change the flavor with butter or milk!
You can purchase Abbey Brittle from Cedar House.

At a time when many Christians no longer practice their faith, there has been an increase in the attention given to the devil and his devious ways. Because the devil seeks to destroy and separate us from God, all Catholics must be on guard. In Exorcism: The Battle Against Satan and His Demons, Fr. Vincent P. Lampert, a seasoned exorcist, presents authentic Catholic teaching on the devil and his plan against humanity. Providing a window into the merciful ministry of exorcism, Fr. Lampert equips Catholics with the knowledge necessary to avoid becoming vulnerable to spiritual attack. Available from The St. Paul Center.
When you see the “A” & “M” intertwined you may think: Ave Maria, latin for Hail Mary, the words of honor the angel Gabriel used to first address the Virgin at the Annunciation.

In many Marian images, Mary is seen stomping on the head of the serpent, representing Satan. Give these socks as a gift and reminder to call upon Mary to protect your friends and family from the attacks of the evil one and to draw them closer to her Son!

While it is made out of paper, the exquisite design is quite sturdy and long-lasting. It looks wonderful on a home’s prayer table or on the bedside stand. When illuminated with the battery-operated candle that is provided, the image has a soft flickering glow. It is easy to turn on and off the candle by the back panel. Jill has three pages of different shrines available for purchase in her shop. She said, “The first time I made a shrine, it reminded me of the little wayside shrines of Europe. I loved watching the image as it glowed. It brought me a sense of calmness and so much peace. Since then I keep discovering more beautiful images that I just feel called to design with another shrine.” Go check out these beautiful shrines and give an incredibly unique gift this year!

“Why are you afraid? Have you no faith?”—Mark 4:40
As he calmed the storm at sea, Jesus reproached the apostles for their lack of faith. On March 27, 2020, Pope Francis used the Gospel passage as a sign of God’s blessing, forgiveness, and healing in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Holy Father offered hope to the world with an Extraordinary Urbi et Orbi Blessing from an empty St. Peter’s Square. Christ in the Storm gathers color photos, readings, the pope’s homily and blessing, and also provides explanation of the symbolism and history throughout the event to create a powerful reminder that Jesus is always with us and that God’s love never fails.
