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 the Jesus in others. Our feet and hands serve, and our hearts keep us on course. We can do what we do in our time here on Earth because our hearts are with Jesus. For this design, I wanted to create little windows that have different landscapes. To me, this symbolizes the many different paths our feet take us on, on our way to Heaven. 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 mustard yellow, crew neck tee. It comes in our best-selling unisex cut.
Let not your hearts be disturbed. Am I not here who am your Mother? – Our Lady of Guadalupe // Mary cares about our hearts. She cares about what is burdening our hearts and the ways we carry those burdens. Like all mothers, she wants to help us find peace and she wants to comfort us. These words from our Lady of Guadalupe are evidence of that. She is there for us, at all times, to give us the love of a mother. She cares for each of us as if we were her only child. What an immense gift it is to have the queen of Heaven and Earth looking out for us. I created this design to look like a small grotto. The words of our Lady of Guadalupe surround her, just like her mantle surrounds us. My hope is that when you wear this shirt, you feel the comforting presence of Mary.
This design comes screen printed on a slate blue, v-neck tee and a turquoise blue crew neck sweatshirt. Both designs are available in our best-selling unisex cut.
My past, O Lord, to Your mercy; my present, to Your love; my future to Your providence. – Saint Padre Pio // This prayer has brought me such comfort over the years. These are words I look to in moments of anxiety and they remind me that God was faithful then, He is faithful now, and He will forever be faithful. This prayer is an act of trust, that while we may not know what the future holds, we know *who* holds it, and *that* makes all the difference. Whenever I say these words, I always envision mountains. The unwavering mountain always reminds me of our unwavering God. On the front of this design are the words “Mercy, Love, Providence” and on the back you can find the entire prayer over a serene mountain landscape. My hope is that when you wear this shirt, you are reminded and comforted by the faithfulness of God.
This design comes printed on a heathered autumn crew neck shirt. It is available in the same uni-sex cut that you know and love.
“Everything is a grace because everything is God’s gift. Whatever be the character of life or its unexpected events – to the heart that loves, all is well.” -St. Therese of Lisieux. // Everything is grace. I think that is a daily mantra we could all use. Through grace, I here today. Through grace, I am able to pursue sainthood. Through grace, I can find God in the small moments that make up my day. Through grace, even the hardest moments can be made holy. Through grace, I can offer up my day to God, over and over again. Through grace, I can see the sacredness all around me. I created this shirt with a minimalist design so that it feels like a message written by St Therese just for you. My hope is that when you wear this shirt you are keenly aware of the grace of God all around you.
This design comes screen printed on a mauve, v-neck tee. It is available in our best-selling unisex cut.
All the way to heaven is heaven, for Jesus said, I am the way. – Saint Catherine Of Siena // I fell in love with these words the first time I heard them, and they have only felt more true as I have gotten older. When I hear these words, I am inspired to truly seek, see, and love the Jesus in others. Jesus is the way and until we get to see him face to face, we can show our love for Him by loving all of his people. We can show our love for Him by praising God for all the beautiful gifts we have been given. When I saw this blue and white tie-dye shirt, it reminded me of Heaven, and I immediately thought of this quote. My hope is that when you wear this shirt you have the eyes to see Heaven around you.
This design comes screen printed on a blue and white tie-dye tee. It is available in our well love unisex cut and is crazy soft.
I am not my own; I have given myself to Jesus. — St. Kateri Tekakwitha // I think we need the intercession of Saint Kateri right now. Saint Kateri Tekakwitha was a powerhouse of virtue. She had a heart for community and was committed to caring for others in that same spirit that Jesus did. She bore her suffering with such divine patience, and she knew that value of redemptive suffering. In a world where supportive communities are dwindling and where so many suffer alone, may we love like Kateri did. This design features the words of St. Kateri Tekakwitha, “I am not alone” and features lilies, in honor of her name “Lily of the Mohawks.” My hope is that when you wear this shirt, St. Kateri Tekakwitha intercedes for you in a powerful way.
This design comes screen printed on an olive green, crew neck tee. It is available in the same unisex cut that you know and love.
“Be still, and know that I am God.” – Psalm 46:10 // Goodness, do I love to breathe those words in. For as long as I can remember I have felt like I needed to earn my rest. I felt like rest was a reward, contingent on how much I could accomplish. Jesus has shown me how far that is from the truth. God is there in our work and what a gift it is to meet Him there, but He is there in the stillness. Jesus has shown me that rest is holy work too. Be still and be in awe, that we have a merciful God who has already won the battle and will never, ever abandon us. This design has all my favorite fall colors and is the perfect tee to pair with your favorite flannel or cardigan. My hope is that when you wear this shirt you find rest and the peace of Christ.
This design comes screen printed on a greige, v-neck tee. It is available in the same unisex cut you know and love.
Auspice Maria is Latin for “Under the protection of Mary.” The symbol consists of the intertwined letters “A” and “M”. The auspice maria is found in all many different types of Catholic art. From stained glass to religious paintings, and now, on t-shirts too. When we are under Mary’s protection, we have room to not only grow but to truly thrive. This is why I decided to incorporate an overflowing bouquet of flowers into the Auspice Maria design. My hope is that when you wear this shirt, you feel the protection of Mary and that it gives you the room you need to grow and turn your face to the Son.
This design comes printed on a gorgeous, emerald green v-neck tee and crew neck sweatshirt. Both are available in our best-selling unisex cut.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9 // Joshua 1:9 has always been one of my favorite bible verses. Here is what I love so much about it. 1st – It reminds me that we are not alone in our fears and that God has always been a tender encourager and protector since the beginning of time. 2nd – It reminds me that strength and bravery was built into my being. Strength and bravery are not virtues for some, they are virtues for all. 3rd – It reminds me that I was never intended to carry my fears alone and that the Lord is with me to share in my fears and my burdens. My hope is that when you wear this shirt, you know all these things to be true.

Veni, Sancte Spiritus, known as the Golden Sequence, is the sequence for the Mass for Pentecost. Pentecost means so much to me because my husband and I were married on Pentecost Sunday. Not only is it one of the greatest masterpieces of sacred Latin poetry, but it has also been a part of the liturgy for almost 450 years. This prayer has been an anchor for the Pentecost mass and has meant so much, to so many, for so long. The words, Veni, Sancte Spiritus, translate to Come, Holy Spirit and those words alone are a powerful prayer that anyone can pray. For this design, red was the obvious choice and I also added doves, another symbol of the Holy Spirit. My hope is that when you wear this shirt, you can feel the presence of the Holy Spirit throughout your day and that you feel encouraged to say the words, Veni, Sancte Spiritus.
This design comes screen printed on a heathered red, v-neck tee and a heathered red crew neck sweatshirt. Both designs are available in our best-selling unisex cut.
