More information
WATERMEAD STORY The first “Little Saint” card produced was our "Advice for a Healthy Retreat" card and this was soon followed by the "Advice for a Speedy Recovery" card. Then more "Little Saint" characters joined the collection inspiring a series of folded notelets, the first using a saying from St Joseph Cafasso (1811-1860) “We were born to love, we live to love and we shall die to love still more.” Many of the "Little Saint" notelets were originally created for a person or situation with the accompanying sayings inspired by a book called 'Wisdom of the Saints', an anthology of hundreds of sayings from over two thousand years. MORE "LITTLE SAINT" PRODUCTS As well as our "Little Saint" cards the characters appear as illustrations in Watermead books and on our weekly Lord’s Day Newsletter. There are also serviettes, mugs, placemats, coasters, bookmarks and we are always exploring new product possibilies – including a range of cards and placemats for Christmas. The little mice that accompany the Saints in their escapades are called Cyril and Methodius, named after two 9th century saints, and they, too, have been used on our 'alternative' Valentine's Day card.
