Pope Benedict XVI stated in his general audience on August 19th, 2009: “The saints are true interpreters of Sacred Scripture. In the experience of their lives the saints have verified the truth of the Gospel; thus they introduce us into a knowledge and understanding of the Gospel.”

In the Catechism of the Catholic Church it says (CCC 2225 & 2226):

"Through the grace of the sacrament of marriage, parents receive the responsibility and privilege of evangelizing their children. Parents should initiate their children at an early age into the mysteries of the faith of which they are the “first heralds” for their children. They should associate them from their tenderest years with the life of the Church. A wholesome family life can foster interior dispositions that are a genuine preparation for a living faith and remain a support for it throughout one’s life."

"...Parents have the mission of teaching their children to pray and to discover their vocation as children of God...."

The challenge for all of us as parents, is then: Are we putting our Catholic faith in front of our children at every turn and even in the midst of their longing for entertainment?

Are we giving our families an opportunity to contemplate the many pathways of holiness that these models of our Catholic faith gave to us to follow?

This is why we made SaintCards.  Our family wants to invest into the Catholic Domestic Church to help parents fulfill their mission in "teaching their children to discover their vocation as children of God" (CCC 2226). Through learning about these holy men and women, the entire family can grow in holiness, all while having fun.  It's all for heaven in the end!

We hope these SaintCards can help every family grow in love of the Saints and through that growth come to know more intimately, He, who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

In Christ, David and Kendel Williams

Risks and challenges

Financial backing is the biggest challenge to get this product to market. A successful Kickstarter campaign (at least $20,000) would provide us the resources to bring this project to life for the Catholic community. Any additional funds you can pledge above the minimum are so greatly appreciated! Our Digital Printer is Catholic and SaintCards will be Made in the USA! We hope you enjoy SaintCards as much as we have enjoyed them. There are many more cards in production for future expansions to add to the fun and learning in future months and years.
