Rorate review: Saints for All Occasions
A while back, we brought you a wonderful new product, an app filled with the top novenas. Now, from our friends atNovena.com, we want to bring to your attention a beautiful new product that we know some readers have been looking for: a set of Catholic note cards to send friends and family for special occasions along with the patron saint of the cause.
As you’ll see in our not-so-great pictures (the good ones were shot by Abrams Noterie), the picture above shows the box.Even the box is gorgeous. When you open it, you’ll see more incredible craftsmanship, and the note cards and envelopes.
Send your best wishes with St. Casilda (invoked for luck), St. Vitus (invoked for laughter), and St. Teresa of Ávila (invoked for healing). For Mother’s Day there is St. Monica (Patron Saint of Mothers) and for graduations there is St. Thomas Aquinas (Patron Saint of Students). The foil-stamped box includes 20 envelopes and 20 cards, each featuring a different saint. Mrs. Adfero remarked: “They’re so beautiful I don’t want to send them!”
Here’s pics of a front and back of the note card, that open up so you can write on blank white pages inside.
One note: It is in small print, but like the app, these cards do state the feast days according to the new calendar. But it’s such a small feature that we do not believe it greatly takes away from the quality of the product.
Below are several places you can click on and buy (as always, Rorate make nothing from this, as we accept no payments, stipends or ads, ever):
