This bi-fold leather wallet belongs to our Coraggio collection, and features our donkey design.
These wallets feature Catholic quotes and designs, and are great to carry all of your credit cards, gift cards, cash, and more! They feature one large open pocket for cash, and six smaller pocket inserts for credit cards. Both colored wallets measure 9.5" wide when opened, and stand 3.75" tall. Due to the type of leather, our cacao colored wallets are roughly 1/2" thick when folded, and our stone colored wallets are roughly 3/4" thick when folded. Crafted from 100% soft, genuine leather, each one comes in differing shades and patterns - no two are the same. They are designed and engraved in our Steubenville, OH workshop.
Hand-crafted in Honduras, these leather card holders were created by the individuals at Lazarus Artisan Goods. Through this ministry, men and women are taught to make high quality goods while receiving sustainable wages, health-care, and an education. Their goal is to not only help their workers financially, but to teach them to find dignity and purpose in all that they do. Both we at Catholic to the Max and Mission Lazarus thank you for helping support our teams of talented individuals.
[Coraggio Design - Donkey]
Many of us know Christ’s entrance into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, but the symbology of Him riding a donkey is much greater than some may know. To begin, it was prophesied in Zechariah 9:9 (“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Sion, shout for joy, O daughter of Jerusalem: Behold thy King will come to thee, the just and savior: he is poor, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt, the foal of an ass.”) This is explicitly fulfilled in all four Gospels (Matthew 21: 2-7), (Mark 11: 2-7), (Luke 19:30-35), (John 12:15). In Genesis 49:11, we also see the symbology in this for Christ’s passion. It reads: Tying his foal to the vineyard, and his ass, O my son, to the vine. He shall wash his robe in wine, and his garment in the blood of the grape. And lastly, the donkey is known as a beast of burden as it is used to carrying both goods and people, and likewise, so Christ carries our burdens.
Once, as Pope St. John Paul II battled illness, a Capuchin friar stood below his window with a fist in the sky and shouted, "Coraggio! (Courage!)" Inspired by this story, we at Catholic to the Max wanted to create a product line devoted to inspiring others to have courage and spark real life conversations about Christ. With this in mind, we've created a new set of designs that are Catholic, engaging, but also a little unclear. By stirring curiosity in others, our hope is when someone asks you about your shirt, journal, bracelet, etc, you have the opportunity and courage to proclaim the message of Jesus.
