This rustic journal cover belongs to our Coraggio collection, and features our Lilies and Sparrows design.
For the writer in all of us, this 5.75" x 9.25" journal cover is the lifelong companion you can use for all your future journals. Measuring 9.25" tall, and 11.75" when opened, this cover comes with an internal journal, and then can be refilled with a new one when you're ready! With a wrap-around leather strap, each journal cover includes a strap that is used to keep it held together while you travel! Crafted from 100% soft, genuine leather, each one comes in differing shades and patterns - no two are the same. The included inside journal comes with a tag of the artisan’s name that personally crafted your journal and has around 100 pages of standard-ruled paper. They are designed and engraved in our Steubenville, OH workshop.
Hand-crafted in Honduras, these leather journals 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.
These journals are only available while supplies last.
[Coraggio Design - Lilies and Sparrows]
This design implements two Bible passages, referencing the wildflowers and lilies, and sparrows. In Luke 12: 27-28 we read: “Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you?”. And in Matthew 10: 29-31 we read: “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” These passages remind us to not worry, and to trust in God’s everlasting care.
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, Catholic to the Max has partnered with the Lazarus Artisan Shop in Honduras to bring you this fair-trade, hand-crafted leather item. May it give you the courage for the adventure of an authentic Christian life!
Both we at Catholic to the Max and Mission Lazarus thank you for helping support our teams of talented individuals.
