The Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith, and Bl. Carlo Acutis knew this better than most. As a modern blessed, he evangelized in some new and unique ways...just like our new Saint Cards! Now you can carry (or frame) a reminder of the importance of the Eucharist, by remembering the young man who made it his life's mission to get the word out! Designed in the style of classic baseball cards, these “heavy cards” from Spirit Juice are crafted from artisan-grade 32pt (380lb) cardstock and are designed to take a beating, endure some wear, and survive the little hands of our saints in training (our children, of course)! What can I say? We’re passionate about paper…and quality…and evangelization!
Our small and medium prints don't just look good, they feel good...exuding a tangible quality and long-lasting reminder of Carlo Acutis' mission. The small size is exactly credit card sized, meaning it will easily fit in a wallet or as a bookmark in your bible, hymnal, liturgy of the hours book, or missal. The medium size is perfect for framing, but they'll also sit nicely on a desk or keep your page in your favorite book all while maintaining their structural rigidity and standing up to recurring use and daily life (unlike lesser-quality paper stocks). On the back of these small and medium prints, we include a beautifully designed reminder of the (soon to be) saint's life; their birth and death, notable information, and a reminder of why we look to them as examples of holiness and Godliness.
This design is part of our ongoing "Patrons of Media" collection.
Blessed Carlo Acutis
Born: May 3, 1991 | Died: October 12, 2006
Bio: “What’s the use of winning 1,000 battles if you can't beat your own passions?” Blessed Carlo Acutis loved video games and ice cream, but when the call arose, he put these aside to help the poor, using his first savings to buy a homeless man a sleeping bag. Carlo's true passion was the Eucharist: "his highway to heaven". This led to his mother's conversion. At the age of 11, Carlo began to investigate the Eucharistic miracles that have occurred in history. He used all his computer knowledge and talents to create a website that traced that history. It comprises 160 panels and that have also made the rounds of more than 10,000 parishes in the world.Carlo could not understand why stadiums were full of people and churches were empty. He would repeatedly say, “They have to see, they have to understand."
