The meaning behind "The Little Catholic Box"
Previously we were known as "The Happy Catholic Box", but as of August 1st, 2016 we have changed our name to "The Little Catholic Box"! When Jim and I first met in college, I was Catholic, but making it to mass was a struggle for me. He on the other hand was a soon to be convert who was excited about his faith. Even though he couldn't participate, he was always asking me to go to mass at our school's chapel on Sunday evenings. When we started dating, our first real date consisted of driving an hour to Columbus, Ohio to have pizza and see a movie, Thérèse: The Story of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux (2004). It was subtitled, and kind of what you'd expect for a film about a Catholic saint. It wasn't the rom-com I was used to, but I didn't know that night how a Little Flower would keep coming back to us. In 2006 I ended up taking my first teaching job at Little Flower Catholic School. Fast forward, 8 years, and our 4th little girl was born. We named here Teresa in honor of St. Thérèse and St. Teresa of Calcutta.
We try to take St. Thérèse of Lisieux's example of being little. We're certainly not a large company but we hope and we pray that our little box will be a little extra push towards deeper faith for those who receive it.
