Brick House in the City – Fall 2022 Line

I once was lost, but now I’m found. // Raise your hand if Amazing Grace makes you tear up just a little every time you hear it. This hymn always moves me, but most especially the line – I once was lost, but now I’m found. My mind immediately goes to all the times in my life where I was the 1, not the 99, and God still sought me out, approached me where I was, in love, not shame, and saved my heart. What a gift it is to have a God that loves us so fiercely and to know we are never forgotten, no matter how lost we may feel. My hope is that when you wear this shirt you are reminded of the peace that comes from being sought and found by God. 

This cozy, fall design comes screen printed on a heather dust, crew neck shirt. It is available in our bestselling unisex cut shirt. You can grab yours today at our discounted, pre-order price.

Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine // This is one of my favorite, go-to prayers of all time. I love it so much because there isn’t a single situation where I don’t need more Jesus or more of His sacred heart and grace in my life. This simple prayer has redirected my heart more times than I can count and helps me to focus on the things that matter most in this life. “Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine” – My hope is that when you wear this tee, you feel your heart drawn to Jesus in a new and profound way.

Mater Dei when translated means, Mother of God. I have a lot of shirts dedicated to Mary, but I wanted to create one that honors her maternity and the incredible example she given us as the mother of Jesus. Jesus had a startlingly bold yet tender faith, and I personally like to think that he had that not just because He is the son of God but because he learned it by watching His mom. It is easy to oversimplify the life of any saint by thinking of their big moments. For Mary, we think of her fiat or her journey to the cross alongside her Son. But just like the rest of us, Mary’s life was made up of many small moments and I like to think she savored them. I like to think that is where she dug deep into her role as the bearer of God as she nourished and raised her son. All those little moments allowed her to be who God created her to be, and the same is true for us. My hope is that when you wear this shirt you hold tight onto these days as Mary did and raise up the future of the church.

“The greatest love story of all time is contained in a tiny white Host.”. Venerable Fulton Sheen // I have always loved these words from Fulton Sheen. I think that (especially) as a cradle catholic, we might find ourselves going through the motions at mass. Sit, stand, kneel, shake hands, kneel, receive. Rinse and repeat. To me, this quote is a reminder to me that what takes place at the mass is actually radical and intimate and captivating. My hope is that when you wear this shirt, you are reminded of the incredible eucharistic love of Christ and that you find yourself more deeply entrenched in the greatest love story.

Viva Cristo Rey, when translated means, Long live Christ, the King! I fell more in love with the life and legacy of Blessed Miguel Pro this past spring and I read about him in our Lenten devotional. During the La Cristiada war, Miguel went to great lengths and risked his life over and over to minister to his community, even to the point of constantly dressing in disguise. “!Viva Cristo Rey!”, were his last spoken words before execution in 1927 and these words became the battle cry for all of the Cristeros. My hope is that when you wear this shirt you feel inspired to bravely spread the joy of Christ as Blessed Miguel Pro did.

Everybody wants a revolution, but nobody wants to do the dishes. // I have always LOVED this quote, so imagine my delight when I found out earlier this year that it is ascribed to my beloved Dorothy Day. Knowing Dorothy, this should be no surprise. Dorothy Day wanted to change the world in a revolutionary way, but she also understood that big change, starts as small change and that no large stage or audience can ever replace the change that takes place when we come together person to person. My hope is that if you ever feel overwhelmed with the world, you can put on this shirt and be comforted by the reminder that even the smallest act of love, like washing the dishes and breaking bread, can bring about the greatest change.

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.

“The woman’s soul is a shelter in which other souls may unfold” – Edith Stein // To St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, women are uniquely and profoundly gifted with the ability to open their souls, which has a beautiful ripple effect that teaches purpose and gives safety and meaning to the lives of others. Empathy and vulnerability aren’t signs of weaknesses, instead they are a gift that allows us to welcome others into the folds of God’s protection, mercy, and grace. My hope is that when you wear this shirt, you feel the call to be a shelter, and maybe be so lucky as to witness the ripple effects of your own love.

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
