Little With Great Love

Little With Great Love – Our Restoration Journey

Inspired by the examples of St. Therese of Lisieux and St. Teresa of Calcutta, our writers and artists share stories of restoration, gifts, and resources through art and media. To accompany pilgrims through the mountains and valleys of their journeys, we first seek to let Christ lead us along our own paths to restoration. On our restoration journey, we share our stories, using our gifts to bring others to Him for healing.

Visual Grace | Sacred Art by Kate Capato – Catholic Contemporary Sacred Art rooted in tradition offering an intimate encounter with the Divine Creator

Kate Capato is a Catholic contemporary sacred art painter and speaker rooted in the tradition of our faith. She creates oil paintings inspired by prayer and our powerful church teachings. Kate is greatly influenced by JP2’s Teachings on The Theology of the Body as well as the Renaissance masters due to her gifted time studying painting in Florence, Italy. She seeks to bring others deeper into a relationship with Christ and an awareness of who they are as men and women, through beauty.

As a missionary of Divine beauty, Kate travels around the world with her original art along with her husband Pawel, a professional musician with a master’s in music therapy, speaking about beauty and offering an intimate encounter with the Lord through the sacred arts.

Kate’s art has been featured around the globe and she is available to create new works for your churches, communities, and homes as well as to travel worldwide to you to share the faith in this powerful way.

Society of the Little Flower UK

Society of the Little Flower UK

Society of Little Flower UK We spread devotion to St. Thérèse of Lisieux and raise money to send to Carmelite projects around the world.

Founded in 2002 in the UK, Society of the Little Flower spreads devotion to St. Thérèse of Lisieux and raises funds to send to Carmelite projects around the world. Since our inception, we have sent over £5 million to be used for formation, mission, development and aid. The projects we support are wide ranging, but all with a thread of supporting Carmelites to further faith and practice running throughout.

We currently support twelve postgraduate students studying in Rome, coming from several Carmelite provinces around the developing world. They come from Kenya, Timor-Leste, Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia, India and Mozambique and are studying a wide range of subjects: Dogmatic Theology, Canon Law, Philosophy, Psychology, Spirituality, Human Formation and Church History. We believe very strongly that giving a good education from these areas is the best investment for the future both to the Carmelite Order and to the wider communities.

The General Commissariat of St. Thérèse and St. Albert in Kerala, India came in to existence with the transfer of 20 Discalced friars to the Ancient Observance. It now has six communities, four in India, one in Ireland and one in Germany. It has 42 professed members of which 31 are in solemn vows (including 26 priests) and another 32 young men in the initial formation. The members are very much involved in various pastoral, educational and social ministries. Some of the members are doing their ministries in Italy, Ireland and in Germany.

When news of the devastating Easter weekend floods in Timor-Leste reached us, we set up an emergency appeal, where we raised nearly £4,000. The strong Carmelite presence in Timor-Leste, overseen by Australian Carmelites, are distributing the money directly to those Timorese impacted, using it in short term aid work, and for the expenses of long term rebuilding.

The projects funded by the Society of the Little Flower through the Carmelite Curia are many and varied from formation of young friars and sisters.

Easter Pup Creations

Easter Pup Creations

Easter Pup Creations – Handcrafted Custom Rosaries and Wearable Art

Our Beginnings
I was first introduced to the rosary while serving as a medic In the Army. Though, I didn’t discover its true beauty and how it could bring me comfort until years later when I spent some time as a patient in the VA hospital and developed a relationship with the chaplain there. Over time he became both a friend and a mentor.
The desire (or compulsion) to craft rosaries didn’t strike me until later.
In July of 2005, I suffered a serious injury to my hand while working in a machine shop. My hand was crushed and two fingers were traumatically amputated by a chain that had snapped off of my machine. One of the two fingers was saved and over the next several months and years I underwent numerous surgeries reconstructing my hand.

It was during this time of recovery that I felt led and compelled to make rosaries. I had sunk into a dark place and memories of my time as a Trauma / Pedi-trauma medic filled my days and nights. Making rosaries served as a pathway for me to find peace of mind and was a great therapeutic tool in relearning to use my hand.
Also in this difficult time, I was introduced to a strong-willed Alaskan Husky who would make positive and dramatic changes in my life.
Born on Easter Sunday of 2006, this tiny pup was given to me as a Father’s Day gift. I’ll be the first to admit that I had no desire to have a dog. But, upon meeting this frightened tiny pup (she was being circled by our cats at the time) and hearing of the horrific conditions she came from, I knew she was meant to be with us. In just a few hours, an inseparable bond was formed between the two of us and it seemed that we both needed each other.

Why Easter Pup?
Battle Buddy, Best Friend, and Legend in her own mind
When contemplating and debating with myself as to what I should call this new adventure, I kept returning to the two biggest things that brought me peace in troubled dark times. Making and praying the rosary and my best friend and battle buddy Queen Pupcake the Easter Pup.
Following that logic, it seemed only natural to name it after her.

It is our hope that you find our product one of beauty and quality. Feel free to contact us with any questions special requests
