Happy New Year from the Artists in the Sacristy

Before we get too much further into the new year, we should catch up with some things from the old year, some more of the ever-popular amice tie designs made by our friends of the Marian Sisters of Santa Rosa. As always, our thanks to their chaplain, Fr Jeffrey Keyes, for sharing these with us.

Mother and child, for January 22nd, the anniversary of Roe v. Wade
A particularly clever one for the Third Sunday after Epiphany in the EF, in reference to the words of the Collect, “stretch forth the right hand of Thy majesty to protect us.”
Arrows for St Sebastian
Baby Jesus in the manger on Christmas
December 23rd, the O antiphon Clavis David, which makes for a nice little pun on Fr Keyes’ name.
St Andrew’s Cross
September 28th, San Lorenzo Ruíz, a Filippino who was martyred in Japan during the famous Tokugawa persecution of Christians, and is now venerated as one of the Patron Saints of his native land. The sacristan who did this one is herself from the Philippines.
 St Jerome
 Guardian Angels
 First Friday of the Sacred Heart
 Pope St John XXIII
Oct. 13, the 100th anniversary of the Fatima apparitions
 St John Cantius (EF date Oct. 20)
