Listed below are some of my favorite shops that keep the Catholic Faith at the center of their work. Click on the title to browse their website.
"I am in the process of trying to establish myself as a Carmelite Hermitess of Our Lady of Fatima as Sister Jade Mary of the Sorrowful Heart under Canon 603 with bishop approval in the United States. I have a great love for Our Lady of Fatima, Her Seven Sorrows and simply wish to live a life of seclusion offering every small sacrifice for the triumph of the Immaculate Heart. I have three top priorities in which to devote my eremitical life: Love of Christ as Spouse, Chair of Saint Peter and constant acts of reparation for the Immaculate Heart of Mary. I have no desire to preach, I simply wish to be “alone with the Alone” just how the early Church Desert Fathers used to live; that of Elijah and Moses who discovered God’s deepest secrets while on the mountain or in the cave of concealment. My day will center on observing the strict rule of Saint Albert of Jerusalem, the Traditional Latin Mass, the Carmelite Rite of the Divine Office and selling Custom made holy cards on Etsy as a means of self support."
"Veils by Lily is a family apostolate whose mission is to reignite in our hearts the faith, awe, and wonder of the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. We invite women to proclaim their faith in the Real Presence by making an external sign of their interior desire to humble themselves before God, truly present in the Blessed Sacrament.
We veil as a sign of humility before God, and we do it anytime we find ourselves inside a Catholic church, where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved in the tabernacle.
If you are thinking about beginning this beautiful devotion, remember that it is God before whom you wish to humble yourself. Like a religious habit, your veil is a public proclamation of your desire to submit to the will of God for your life, and of your commitment to answering the universal call to holiness and continual conversion. Your veil is also a sign of the great dignity inherent to a woman, who has the potential to receive life within herself... both human life and the supernatural life of God. This is an important message the world needs to hear, now more than ever! Veils by Lily is consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Our Mother of Perpetual Help, under the patronage of St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori."
"Our little shop, both here at the monastery and online, is owned and operated by the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, in order to bring the beauty of the Faith to all who visit and shop!
The community of the Sisters MICM (Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary) carefully select the items for the shop. Everything we sell is meant to reflect traditional Catholic living, and to bring you closer to God! Many items have even been designed by the Sisters!"
"Spread my faith” was the message I received from Our Lady on July 2010. It inspired me into a journey of faith and work. Today many of the Rosaries created with this purpose are used by priests, religious and committed laity throughout the world interceding for others in the praying of the Holy Rosary.
Each piece is made with an antique look that imprints its uniqueness and beauty. Fresh water pearls, natural stones an a variety of beads are used to make an exceptional Rosary.
These Rosaries are created to pray with faith and trust in the divine intercession of Our Lady, Queen of Heaven."
"At Glory and Shine, we put our passion and love for Jesus Christ and His Universal Church into action by creating natural and supernatural self-care products with a Catholic purpose. We first begin with Faith, Prayer, Love and Hope. We then always combine Catholic Truth, Inspiration, Identity, Belief, and Devotion. Every item is crafted with deep intention while holding a vision of sharing the Gospel through the ordinary acts of everyday life. Our products are good for the Body, Mind, and Soul!"
