This rustic journal cover belongs to our Coraggio collection, and features our lion logo.
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 - Lion]
As most may know, the lion is considered to be the “King” of all beasts, due to its great muscular power, agility, and ability to dominate all other species. Many great monarchs and Kings in history would take “Lion” into their title, but none so great as Jesus Christ, the “Lion of Judah”. This title is applied to Christ to symbolize majestic power, victory and courage. In Rev 5:5, we read: “Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.” This prophecy is fulfilled by Christ’s courageous sacrifice who has won the battle over death, making Him the ultimate King of kings!
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.
