Patron Saint Medals make great Goddaughter Gifts!

1. Patron Saint Pendants: There are many choices of Saints. You can pick a favorite saint or the child’s name saint. If you are celebrating Confirmation, it is tradition that a child picks a Saint for a Confirmation name. Otherwise, it is always nice to get your Goddaughter a Saint Necklace with Our Lady or Saint Therese (the little flower) on the front. The Saints Market has over 7,000 medals and many of them can be engraved with your personal message.

2. Personalized Music Box: A music boxes that say Goddaughter on the front make great Goddaughter gifts! We also carry music boxes for First Communion, Confirmation, and other events that can be personalized with the child’s name and other information. Later, the personalized information can be replaced with a photo from a special event. You godchild will love to play with her music box and listen to the music at bedtime. It will always remind her of you!

3. Rosary: It is nice to give a small child a wooden rosary so that she can become accustomed to this beautiful devotion. Young girls enjoy getting a rose scented St Therese Rosary. As your Goddaughter gets older, you can get her a nicer rosary such as a sterling patron saint rosary. Rosaries make great gifts for a godchild!

Stories of the Saints Books and other Catholic Books Make Great Goddaughter Gifts!

4. Stories of the Saints Book: Catholic books are always good Goddaughter gift ideas! A Catholic Bible or Stories of the Saints is a must. Help your Godchild to learn the faith with books about Catholic Saints, the Blessed Mother, and Jesus. Coloring books about Lent, the Rosary, and Mary are also available at the Saints Market Catholic Store.

These are just a few ideas for you to think about. Whatever you decide, it is a great idea to pray for your Goddaughter, attend Mass for her and with her if possible, send her cards and notes, and attend her special events whether they are church related or not. You are blessed to be asked to be a Godparent! Make sure that you take your job seriously.

Habemus Papum Franciscum – We have Pope Francis!

We have Pope Francis!

We were all so excited when the white smoke came out of the chimney! We waited as the crowd cheered and the bells rang. The Swiss Guard prepared and soon we saw movement of the curtains in the Papal Apartment.

The next thing we knew people were exclaiming with excitement, Habemus Papum! Habemus Papum! Have you ever wondered exactly what Habemus Papum means? Habemus Papum Franciscum means: We have Pope Francis!

If you are like me you very much admired Pope John Paul II. Our 7th child was born on Divine Mercy Sunday, so we named him John Paul (of course)! He is very proud that he is named after a Saint (soon to be) and frequently tells people. We have lots of cute stories about John Paul. One in particular that I like to tell about took place when we were at Mass and John Paul decided to be a little ornery. He started to take some of his clothes off and run towards the alter. Just as I grabbed him and pulled him back, a lady that I know said, “Good thing he’s named after a Saint”! I laughed, thinking to myself yes it is… in more ways than one.

This week we are offering a FREE Pope Francis Holy Card with any size order at the Saints Market Catholic Store. Just make a note in the checkout section that you would like to have the Free Pope Francis Holy Card and we will stick one in with your order.
