Brick House in the City – 2023 Winter Line

Feet on earth Walk with your feet on Earth, but in your heart be in Heaven – Saint John Bosco // I have always loved this quote. Our time on Earth is incredibly precious and it is not to be wasted. Our feet lead us on paths where we can fulfill our unique vocations, where we can love boldly and seek Jesus in others. Our feet and hands serve, and our hearts keep us on course. We are able to do what we do in our time here on Earth when our hearts are with Jesus. My hope is that when you wear this shirt you are encouraged to move in confidence to every path Christ leads you to.

This design comes screen printed on a steel blue crew neck tee. This design comes in our bestselling unisex cut tee and is in stock and ready to ship today.

Saint Fiacre Official Plant Lovers Club // Saint Fiacre is the patron saint of Gardeners and all those who find God amongst plants. Originally from Ireland, Saint Fiacre eventually became Abbot and built a hermitage in the forests of France. There he built a vegetable and herb garden, an oratory for Mary, and a hospice in which he cared for travelers. During his years there he lived his life devoted to prayer, fasting, keeping vigils, and tending to his garden. He is a beautiful example of how a simple life can be holy. This shirt is for all plant lovers (both indoor potted plants and all the beautiful plants outside) who lead us by showing the beauty in caring for all of God’s creations.

This Saint Fiacre inspired design comes screen printed on a warm cider colored crew neck tee. This design comes in our bestselling unisex cut tee and is in stock and ready to ship today.

There are many things that can only be seen through eyes that have cried. – St. Óscar Romero // When I first heard these words from one of my favorite saints, I felt so seen and validated. The narrative that your sensitivity and your empathy makes you weak or fragile is 100% wrong.  Sensitivity does not contradict strength, but rather lives in communion with it. My sensitivity and my tears have given me the strength to strive to love as wide and deep as God calls me. My hope is that when you wear this shirt that you see your heart and tears as a gift not only to yourself, but to the world around you.

// For this design I wanted to pack in some symbolism with flowers blooming underneath rainy skies to symbolize the things that bloom in our life as a result of our tenderness. This design comes screen printed on a muted purple-grey crew neck tee. This design comes in our bestselling unisex cut tee and is in stock and ready to ship today.

Ave Maria, Gratia Plena. // The life Mary lived was possible because she had a heart that was an open vessel, always ready to be filled with grace. From her Ecce, to her Fiat, to her Magnificat, each moment, she exuded grace. Ever since I was a little girl, I have had a devotion to our Lady and I am so grateful that I have had her witness and presence as I have walked through each stage of life. My hope is that when you wear this shirt, you feel connect to and inspired by Our Lady.

O death, where is thy sting? O Hell, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15 55-57 // This scripture passage is one of my favorite ones to meditate on during the Lenten and Easter seasons.  I hope that when you wear this shirt you have a heart of gratitude for our Lord who loves us so much that He suffered the passion to make heaven possible for each and every one of us.

Joan of Arc fearlessly liberated a city and changed the course of a 100-year war. The people were so intimidated by Joan’s bold holiness that they charged her as a heretic and ridiculed her as a madwoman. After her death they collected her ashes and threw them in a local river in hope to erase her legacy forever. But you cannot erase that kind of courage, that kind of faith, or that kind of spirit. She is a patron for all those in need of courage. I hope when you wear this shirt you are reminded that the same grace God gave to  St Joan of Arc to fight her battles is there for you as well in each and every struggle of life. 

This vintage design comes screen printed on a heather stone, v-neck shirt. It is available in our well-loved unisex cut shirt. You can grab yours today at our discounted, pre-order price.

Darkness can only be scattered by light, hatred can only be conquered by love. – Saint John Paul 2 // St. John Paul the II was commonly referred to as a missionary of love and life. He reminds us that love is not fuzzy emotions but rather that love is lived through the lens of self-sacrifice. We can all be that light of love to one another. He also reminds us in this powerful quote to shatter hate and points to unforgiveness as the seed of bitterness that turns to hate. As you wear this shirt remember how little it can take to be the light that shatters the darkness in someone’s day and ask God to reveal to you any pockets of hate that you may be unknowingly carrying so you can heal that hate through His mercy and grace.

This design comes screen printed on a soft pink crew neck tee. This design comes in our bestselling unisex cut tee and is in stock and ready to ship today.

Perhaps you were born for such a time as this. (Esther 4:14) // Such a time as this. Right here and right now.   Holiness and the path to sainthood are attainable for all of us. We were made so intentionally for our world today.  When God created us He had sainthood in mind for each and every one. My hope is that when you wear this shirt, you are able to see yourself as God sees you and that you will see how incredible you are and how your God given gifts can make an impact.

This design comes screen printed on a classic black crew neck tee. This design comes in our bestselling unisex cut tee and is in stock and ready to ship today.

The Winter Family

To every woman reading this blog post, I am so humbled and honored that you want to wear my designs. From the very first moment of prayer when I start, to the spark of the idea and through the artistic process until I am holding them in my hands – I think of you and I pray for you. I hope that these shirts bless you, inspire you, and comfort you as we walk shoulder to shoulder on this path to our sanctity.
Pax et Bonum, Lauren Winter
