We're passionate about Catholic media...and so was this guy! As the patron of our organization, Bl. James Alberione reminds us every day that media can bring glory to God. Even if you can't visit the Bl. James Alberione Chapel at Spirit Juice, you can carry (or frame) a reminder of the Church's first cinephile evangelizer! 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 Alberione's pioneering Catholic media work. 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 saint's life; their birth and death, notable information, and a reminder of why we look to them as examples of holiness and Godliness. Stickers are permanent vinyl stickers that are dishwasher safe and designed to withstand some abuse!
This design is part of our ongoing "Patrons of Media" collection.
Blessed James Alberione
Born: April 4, 1884 | Died: November 26, 1971
Bio: Fr. James Alberione was one of the most creative apostles of the 20th century. He was the founder of the Pauline Family. As early as first grade, James knew he wanted to be a priest. On the 29th of June 1907 he was ordained a priest. Father Alberione felt the Lord was calling him to spread the Gospel using the modern instruments of communication. In order to carry this out, Father Alberione founded the Pauline Family consisting of 10 religious institutes for priests, religious, and laity. He published many periodicals and magazines. Father Alberione’s faith was deep, and his devotion to Our Lady and the rosary was strong.
