Every devotional item presented here comes from God's inspiration given to Catholic nuns and monks, who continuously work and pray for all the faithful, who will use these items. Your donations that support our Parish, Convents and Friaries in Polonia, who created these Sacramentals for You. Creating devotional items by hands of consecrated persons is a continuation of over 1000 years Catholic Church tradition. Please remember to bless them in Your Parish by the Priest. Just like artists during Medieval times, the nuns and monks do not sign their art, because their intention is to serve God's Glory by catching as many Souls for as possible for Heaven. Through these devotional items, the nuns and monks continuously deliver to the faithful the Message from God; the message that is very different than manipulation dictated by today's fashion, market demand or media.
