Easter: God Gives the Gift of Life

Easter is an important Christian holiday. It is the high point on the church calendar and it is a celebration of hope! It reminds us what had to be done to bring those who were far away (us), near to God.

As wonderful as Easter is, it isn’t always possible to share it in person with all the ones we love. There are any number of reasons why family members and loved ones might be separated during this most joyful holiday, nevertheless, it is possible to make the person far away feel included and near to your heart.

Shower them with cards
One way to create that shared feeling is through the sending of inspirational cards. Inspirational cards with a clear Easter message are inherently full of hope and receiving cards makes the person remembered and thereby included in your family’s Easter celebration. Send a card to grandparents living in another state, to aunts or uncles serving in the military or to loved ones spending the season in a hospital bed. In fact, you don’t have to send just one – why not send them a card every day for an entire week?

Instead of an Easter basket, make an Easter box
Another way to include people at a distance is to make up an Easter box. You (and your children) can decorate a shoebox or other box with colored paper and fill it with brightly colored Easter grass. In your box you can place a tiny cross, a book about a favorite saint or some new devotional reading. You could also make some handmade crafts to include. Construction paper eggs decorated with rickrack and ribbons or a cheery spring bookmark make wonderful additions.

A taste of Easter is like a taste of home
If your family enjoys special cakes or cookies at Easter time – this is a great time to send some to loved ones far away. If you like, you can send the recipe with a note explaining that these goodies are part of your yearly Easter observance. Even though they are not able to be in your home, you are sending part of your Easter celebration to them.

Phone calls – just do it
Phone calls are another way to help erase the miles at Easter. With today’s technology your phone call might be a Skype video call – but the idea is the same. Take the time to enjoy a leisurely visit, just as if they were physically in your home.

Easter is a significant holiday and one you’ll want to share with the significant people in your life. Inspirational cards and gifts are one way to share the joy, but there are lots of ways to make your loved ones feel that they are somehow part of your celebration this year. Pick up inspirational cards and religious gifts at The Printery House and start planning ways to help those far away feel near at Easter.

Holy Week: Easter Cards Share Spiritual Truths Through Art

IamDo you know where your Easter cards came from, or if they have a story? Taking the time to send a message of hope and faith with a religious greeting card is a special act. You can make it even more meaningful this year by sending a unique card that has a story all its own.

One example are the cards made on-site at The Printery House, a printing ministry of the Benedictine monks of Conception Abbey. Nestled among the hills and trees of northern Missouri, Conception Abbey is home to just under 50 monks devoted to prayer and ministry. The Abbey has been in existence since 1881 and has been involved with printing since the 1930s.

At The Printery House, religious greeting cards are designed by individual artists, some of whom are the monks themselves. The artwork for each card is chosen by the monks of Conception Abbey for its quality as well as its ability to convey truth and faith. Everything is created by hand at The Printery House, from the art design and layout, to painting and lettering, before going to their in-house printing press. That kind of attention explains why more than 5 million religious greeting cards are sold by The Printery House every year. Proceeds from card sales are used to support the Abbey and Conception Seminary College.
