Dolls from Heaven
We live in a world where the idea of evangelization and spreading the message is something that is not too well known. Dolls from Heaven is a unique venture into helping to spread the message of Christ throughout the world as well as aiming at young children to become more saint like. This is something that is definitely needed to help promote a deeper faith among our youth of today, which in turn could have a lasting impression on adults.
This idea stemmed from one of Catholicism’s highly acclaimed saints, Therese, also knowns as the “little” flower. She was born in France, to two loving parents who in total had nine children. Over her lifetime though she would come to experience great tragedy starting with the death of her mother from breast cancer. Then her father suffered a stroke during her entrance into the Carmelite community at the young age of 15. She then spent the short years of her life devoted to the Lord through prayers and devout love for others. Instead of focusing solely on self she gave her love to others and made sacrifices without others at the time knowing. Her story is one that we can use in our daily lives by remembering that love for Christ and spreading that love is the thing that can settle our fears and doubts. It is also something that will positively affect the world if enough people adopt that way of thinking.
Now that you know a little background on the very special Saint Therese, I will talk about a very interesting concept that the Kiczek family has started. They wish to inspire children to be more like the saints and focus on Jesus. Which is what brought about the concept of Dolls From Heaven, to do just that. After discussing the fact that there are really no doll companies that promote children to faith or to develop a closer relationship with God.
Their first doll is that of Saint Therese, which they stated is “one of their favorite saints”. You can order a special book to go along with your child’s doll called I am Therese, which is based on her journey to sainthood. Another awesome object that you can order to go with your doll is Thereses’ Sunday best; which includes an outfit for your new little Therese doll to dress in for Church.
Take a look at the dolls because they are beautifully done. Pass it along to your friends, family, coworkers as well as religious education teachers, Priests and religious entities. This is something that needs to be talked about and supported!

More than usual, I have noticed an increase of attacks on not only Catholicism but on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Some of these stories I am about to share with you are disturbing and extremely vile in nature. It will disgust you and revolt you, as it did me. Not only are these comments extremely blasphemous but they occurred during an extremely solemn and Holy time of year- Lent.
The first comes from a highly popular network that is known for its less than stellar morals and crude humor regarding anything that is religion. Oh wait, not all religions, just Christianity. Which does not surprise me because Catholicism was started by Jesus Christ and satan hates Jesus because He is the reason we have been redeemed – if we choose to be.
A show titled Midnight with Chris Hardwick, started with the host (Chris Hardwick) showing what is quoted as being a “picture of a super-ripped Korean Jesus” the so-called contestants were then told to use a quote from one of Jesus’ sermons to describe the pictures. A few of the quotes were “Get thee behind me Satan and spot me and then I will in turn spot for you and then we can soap each other’s d***s in the locker room” and “Do others as you would have others do you. Ripped Jesus loves to f*** [bleeped]”. Not only is that crude but it is crude against Jesus Christ, the Savior who was tortured and died on a cross for these ungrateful, hateful people. Instead of using the sacrifice He made to spread His message, they blasphemies Him and attempt to make a joke of Jesus hanging on the cross. This infuriates me because these individuals are damning their souls to hell and there is no talking sense to them.
There is a new show on ABC titled The Real O’Neals which is being produced by Dan Savage. His name suits him because he is a savage, disgrace of a soul. While my sentiments may seem a bit severe, after reading some of his comments I would bet that you will agree. Here are just a few of the quotes
*WARNING* GRAPHIC, VULGAR, QUOTES
Savage accused a politician of having sex—he used an obscenity—with the consecrated Host, the body and blood of Jesus Christ
As everyone knows, Mary was a virgin when she conceived and a virgin when she gave birth. This means, of course, that Jesus busted His own mom’s hymen, kicking it down like a door on His way into the world
Commenting on a statue of the Virgin Mary on the back of a toilet, he said, “Mary’s head was angled in such a way that HOLY MARY MOTHER OF GOD WAS LOOKING RIGHT AT YOUR
The ‘repair’ on this statue of John Paul II makes him look like he just stuck 2 fingers in a squeaky clean altar boy
Men are attracted to the priesthood so they can “wear dresses and have sex with men”
This is extremely disgusting, revolting and it breaks my heart. I have a tear in my eye as I write this now. To say these awful things about Jesus, the Blessed Mother and Jesus’ church, the Holy Catholic Church. He says these things without fully understanding what he is talking about.
We live in a world where it is okay to make crude remarks concerning Christians and their beliefs but you can’t say Merry Christmas. Where people can show support for their beliefs but Christians can’t or they are labeled bigots and extremists. Where Christians are killed almost every day in the Middle East by cruel means and not a word is mentioned but global warming is the most important issue that must be resolved.
There is no doubt that the devil is in control of the world that we live in now. Murder is now a commonplace occurrence, debauchery is normal, pride is encouraged, adultery is glamorized, abortion is an option, God is a taboo subject, Christians are afraid to speak out and it is okay to make fun of Catholics but not muslims.
We have to stand up; we have to say we are not going to stand for this disgrace anymore. We owe it to our Lord and Savior to stand up with our voices, and to fight for our Lord and Savior. He died a horrible, bloody death so that we may be made worthy to spend eternity with Him. Let’s earn it, let’s thank Jesus for His sacrifice by putting ourselves out there and defending Jesus.
I am sorry for the direction mankind has taken.
To hear these awful things said about You and Your Son makes me sick,
To know how much You love us but still are treated terribly.
I will fight for Your glory because it is the least I can do.
I will stand up against those who hate and disgrace You,
Even if I am then attacked.
Give me the strength to stand up against the evils of this world,
To spread your message and glory to others who may not know
And to change the hearts of those hardened by evil and hate.
Here are the places to contact if you wish, to tell them that you are not going to stand for this disgrace:
