The shop looks a bit weather-beaten and worn, but inside are the spiritual links to the many avenues of religiosity available in the Catholic church. There are rosaries, medals, books on the saints, bibles, art, music, sermons from outstanding churchmen, and the list goes on. I bought someone I know a gift, but it was not received with enthusiasm. You better know what you’re doing.
The spiritual is personal, though open to all seekers, and that religious shop was a gem that I had not seen in a long time. It didn’t occur to me to look for one of my books, though I have written one or two. I guess I’m not as religious as I thought.
