Synodal Eucharistic Merch: A Design with a Mission

Introducing my latest Eucharistic merch, crafted through an extraordinary journey of community collaboration and prayerful reflection. This design is the embodiment of our online synodal process, and I'm excited to share the final result with you.

What began as a humble sketch during a Holy Hour has evolved into this image of our Catholic faith, thanks to the enthusiastic participation of our Instagram community. Through debates, polls, and countless messages, this design has been refined to both captivate and catechise.

DESIGN HIGHLIGHTS

Eucharistic Focus: At the heart of this design is the Eucharist, expressing the wearer's deep passion for the Catholic faith. It highlights the source and summit of our faith.

Dual Representation: The image features the wounded Christ on the left and a Catholic priest on the right, symbolising the eternal sacramental presence of Jesus in the ministerial priesthood.

Colour Symbolism: The use of red for Jesus and blue for the priest sparks a unique conversation. Inspired by the profound prayer during Mass, these colours subtly honour the mystery of the Incarnation and the Divine Mercy.

Scriptural Text: The design incorporates 1 Corinthians 11:23-24, reflecting the Eucharistic liturgy passed down through Tradition. Below, "veritas in aeternum" (truth for eternity) underscores the timeless truth of our faith.

Latin for Catechesis: Latin, used as a clear Catholic cultural marker, invites curiosity and evangelisation. It encourages others to delve deeper into the meaning behind the design, fostering opportunities for sharing the faith.

Personal Touch: The slight orange tinge in the priest’s hair hints at its origin from frsamfrench, while the strong (Fr Mike Schmitz) jawline evokes the strength and determination emblematic of all priests.

This merch is a wearable tool for casual evangelisation. Join us in "interrupting the doomscroll" and spreading the Gospel with this new design.

This custom-designed merch, designed by me (Fr Sam), is created specifically for you upon placing your order, hence requiring a slightly longer delivery time. This minimises overstock but also helps directly support my social media ministry and favourite charity: Aid to the Church in Need. Thank you for your merch purchase. Keep the faith!
