BlestArt Olivewood Sale
BlestArt to Visit Christ the King on November 30 & December 1
We are here on a mission to save and rescue the Catholics in the Holy Land. For centuries, Bethlehem’s Catholics have supported their families by carving olive-wood religious items for visiting pilgrims. Many pilgrims have stopped visiting the Holy Land, because of the conflict and continued persecution by ISIS who is already at the door, and other radical groups. This meant there was no source of income for the Catholic families, who depended mainly on the tourism industry. Therefore, many were forced to leave their homeland and go somewhere else were they could afford to feed their children and have a more secure life.
Catholics now make up less than 1% of the population. This simply means in a few years there could be no Catholics left in the Holy Land, for the very first time in history. This also means that there would not be anybody left to protect our holy sites, our faith, and heritage, which we have protected for more than 2000 years. Promoting olivewood carvings in the United States has became the main source of income for about 600 Catholic families. Hopefully this will eliminate the massive immigration of Catholics from the Holy Land. This gives them the opportunity to live and work with dignity in the ongoing conflict.
With this in mind, I would love to invite every one of you to come and take a look at our beautiful artwork display. And if you like anything, please consider buying it, because the people who chose to stay in the Holy Land to protect our holy sites, deserve our help and support. We bring to you the olive-wood art as a sign of peace. Catholics in the Holy land are the very first line of defense of the Christian world against terrorists, which has no limits as we have seen.
Your support is greatly needed and sincerely appreciated. Our carvings make beautiful gifts for all occasions; include your church, and a loved one. So please, if every family here purchased just one item, no matter how small or how much it is, you would not only get something special, unique, and hand carved from the Holy land, but you would also help make a huge difference in the history of Catholics in the Holy Land. We accept cash, checks, and all credit and debit cards; but please, we do not accept any donations. Please take five extra minutes of your time and consideration, to stop by our display, it can truly mean a huge difference between a Catholic family leaving or staying in the Holy Land.
The BlestArt Sale will be in Tuohy Hall following all Weekend Masses on November 30 & December 1.
