This rustic leather card holder belongs to our Coraggio collection, and features our pelican design. This card holder is perfect compact size to take on every trip. With a 3.5 x 2.5" pocket, it's perfect to hold your business cards, credit cards, or even some cash! 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 - Pelican]
In time of famine, a pelican will strike and wound itself, so as to feed its young so they may live. This act has made the pelican a universal symbol for Christ in church history. For we too are fed upon the Precious Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sins. (Matthew 26:28 - “…for this is the blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins”)
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.
