LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - For Catholic retailers, the Easter season is the second-most popular gift-giving season of the year, serving as a counterweight to the Christmas season. Catholic shoppers turn out in droves for gifts to present on the occasion of baptisms, reconciliation, communion, confirmation, and weddings.

Fortunately, Catholic Online has made the process of shopping for a gift simple by opening Catholic Shopping .com.

See for yourself!

Catholic Shopping .com is the ideal place to find everything from Bibles, to medals, to prayer cards which make for wonderful commemorations of the sacraments.

The sacraments are the holiest rites of the Church and each one is special. Although some sacraments are repeated, such as reconciliation and communion, the first occasion of a sacrament is also noteworthy. Most people receive the sacraments as children and despite their youth, they remember the occasions for the rest of their lives.

However, adults can also receive all of these sacraments and they deserve commemoration as well.

During the sacramental season, it's okay and encouraged to give gifts that foster reverence and solemnity for the occasion. Medals of the saints, as well as prayer cards and items commemorating events such as first communion are very appropriate.

The gifts serve not so much as luxury items, although many can be exquisite, but they primarily function as memories of the first receipt of a sacrament. Naturally, the person giving the gift is well remembered too.

If you have a family member who is receiving a sacrament, then you are encouraged to visit Catholic Shopping .com to see if you can find something they would appreciate. You can also shop for yourself. Free shipping is available for qualified orders.

Hey, it doesn't hurt to look!

It doesn't hurt to look, and even if you don't know anyone receiving a sacrament it could be that a friend or neighbor does. Please feel free to share Catholic Shopping .com with them too.

Enjoy your shopping in our store and may this Easter be filled with blessings in abundance!
