From the very beginning of our church on Pentecost, we have been given wisdom and truth from above through the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit has inspired and worked through Peter and all the Apostles, Disciples, our Church Fathers and Theologians and of course our Women of Faith. Over two thousand years later we see a deeply rich heritage that has survived all attempts of destruction. And during this year, we are called to open the doors of our churches and encourage people of faith to enter.

WHAT IS LODOLITE CRYSTAL? Lodolite is old Greek origin, meaning “mud stone”. It is better known as ‘Garden Stone’ because of its earthy color. Lodolite is a crystal quartz with mineral inclusions. The term ‘Garden Stone’ is a beautiful reminder of how we are called to plant the seed, the seed, the word of God! Truly a call to the New Evangelizaton.

Lodolite is only found in one location, the Minas Gerais area of Brazil. These mines are famous for its gems and minerals. The stone has a good hardness equal to that of other quartzes, and was formed over millions of years. Ancients believed that lodolite aided spiritual growth, an interesting thought!’
