In the Service of St. Peter

Priest's initials embroidered on a stole for Gardiner Hall Restoration

"The giving of the stole to the candidate at ordination in Rome was intended to convey a double symbolism; first, that the elevation to the clergy of the Roman Church occurred de benedictione S. Petri, and secondly that by ordination the candidate entered the service of St. Peter, that is of the Roman Church." Catholic Encyclopedia

  1. This is just lovely! I ordered aprons through your company for my daughter and she absolutely loves them. It's wonderful to see your other work here! I just popped over from In the Heart of My Home and am thrilled to see you sponsoring the site and offering such a beautiful sample of your work. God bless you in all your labors! Lisa
