Welcome to A Lost Sheep Catholic Store

On Facebook we state that we are a mobile Catholic book and gift shop that provides books and gifts to enhance the faith of Catholics in Anne Arundel County and surrounding parishes.  We would like to branch out to offer our products and services to all Catholics everywhere.  More and more bookstores and gift shops that are Catholic themed are going out of business due to the large overhead costs associated with having a brick and mortar store.  Our goal is to evolve into a brick and mortar store but for now we are a mobile store that goes between parishes, conferences, craft shows, and activities and offer our products and services to all that will grace our tables.  I hope that you will take a look at what we have to offer and if you don’t see something then please let us know by clicking on Missing Product form.  We will get back to you with a link to the item if we do carry it and it wasn’t showing up or we will email you items that we can get for you.  Our goal is to be your one stop shop for all of your Catholic book and gift needs.  I also want to say thank you with this introductory post to all those customers who have been with us over the last four (almost five) years that we have been in business.  We really appreciate your support and suggestions.

A Message to the Flock

One of today’s Saints of the Day is Omeljan Kove. He was a Ukranian born in 1884 and was martyred in 1944. He was arrested by the Gestapo in spring of 1943 for aiding the Jews. On 25 March 1944 he was burned to death in the ovens of the Majdanek Nazi death camp. He was beatified by John Paul II in June 2001.

When reflecting on the Saint of the Day, I always ask myself, especially when looking at martyrs, what I would do. I look back at Peter and the disciples who scattered and didn’t attempt to associate or help Jesus for fear of their lives. I realize that God knew that they would respond that way. From a talk I went to, it was brought up that Jesus told the Apostles to wait after he ascended. He wanted them to wait for the Holy Spirit before they could go teach the Gospel. The Apostles then went out and taught and were able to stand up for Jesus even if it meant giving up their lives. With the Holy Spirit, we are strengthened to do things than humans by themselves cannot do.

I urge you to pray today for the strength of the Holy Spirit and to ask to be clothed in spiritual armor so that you can defend Jesus in this secular world. Have a Blessed Day!
