MaryShop.com Catholic Gifts Online Extends Inventory for Spring Sales
With the sacraments of First Communion and Confirmation increasing for Spring, the gift selection has been increased.
Confirmation gifts include Patron Saint Medals which can be engraved to include the name of the person receiving the medal and the date of confirmation. It does make a wonderful choice. These medals can be worn daily as a reminder of the faith that guides them. And, to petition that Saint for additional help when needed.
The gift selection at MaryShop.com is now at 17,000 items which include a variety of "popular piety" items like Miraculous Medals, Rosaries, Statues and more.
The Catechism teaches us that Popular Piety are devotions among the faithful. The religious sense of the Christian people has always found expression in various forms of piety surrounding the Church's sacramental life, such as veneration of relics, visits to sanctuaries, pilgrimages, stations of the cross, the rosary, medals, etc. These expressions extend the liturgical life of the Church, but do not replace it.
Piety began as early as 100 AD and includes a variety of common practices such as the Advent rosary, the crib (creche), palms for Palm Sunday, the blessing of a home or the family table, novenas, scapulars, various prayers such as the Angelus, feast days, veneration of relics, holy images and statues, and Marian medals. For more, see section 1674 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
