Pius XII and St. Vladimir

So lately I've been doing the ebay thing. Most of the time I get outbid, which most of the time is ok with me. I want to buy stuff, but generally not for too much, so if someone wants to pay more than me God bless them (well thats not usually what I'm thinking when I'm outbid but thats how I try to look at it).

Ebay has a lot of Catholic stuff out there. Some of it is sad to see like old things from a church being sold off or relics, but there are also a lot of medals on there. I bought one of Pius XII (I put a bid on another one a little while ago, we'll have to see if I win or not). This is the one I already have though.

Then to my surprise I actually found something for my Dad. He's coming into the church tomorrow night at the Easter Vigil mass. He chose as his name Vladimir, which not surprisingly cuts down on the gift opportunities with that name. But I found this a week ago. Its a St. Vladimir icon. It came with a little card in the back, but its all in Russian so I haven't a clue what it says. But either way I'm glad I was able to get it on ebay.

Thanks for posting this. I had never thought of going to eBay for Catholic items. I'll have to take a look.

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
