“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” 1 Peter 1:3
With all the uncertainty of recent days, one thing remains clear to Catholics: He is risen – in our hearts and minds – and always will be. So this Easter, we want to wish you a day of joy in celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Although most of us will be celebrating without our usual family gatherings and church services, that doesn’t mean we can’t use the time to reflect on the messages of hope, sacrifice and eternal life that are inherent to the holiday. We can continue to turn to God’s love through prayer, reading, conversation and contemplation — and CatholicShop.com will be here for you in whatever way we can. If you’re looking for faith-based items to keep you centered or to keep your family occupied while at home, we’ve featured a few staff picks below that you might be interested in.
And don’t forget to visit us over the coming weeks if you need gifts to recognize life events or sacraments, such first communions. Again, we hope you have a lovely Easter!
