Heel thyself: check out these saintly socks

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 02/06/18

Yes, you can now buy socks with saints, thanks to a little company called Sock Religious (not to be confused, evidently, with sacrilegious).

From their website:

Sock Religious is a Mom and Pop online store. Scott and Elisabeth launched their business at NCYC 2017 and aren’t looking back. It all started with Scott always trying to match his sock with the holiday, time of the year, or special event. We love our Catholic faith which celebrates more feasts than anyone else, so it was a natural fit.  We hope to roll out new socks on a regular basis with your favorite saints. Sock Religious is a perfect gift for Confirmation candidates, your pastor, your favorite Catholic, and don’t forget to “treat yoself”. Sock Religious aims to bring the faith to the workplace and to spice up your Sunday best.

Visit the site for more. They have Francis footwear, and John Paul II, too, among others. Below, their selection for Ascension Thursday.

I want a pair of St. Stephen socks!!
