Prayer Changes the World
"I never can get over how a little hunk of stone can change the lives of so many people. We can talk about it, read about it, but to see it happen, and to see how it brightens the recipient's whole demeanor is just amazing. It brings hope and it is so easy to make this happen.
How many times have we been given terrible news about our own well-being and/or that of friends, and loved ones, that cripples us with worry? It is so easy to collapse and fall to pieces. These little pocket crosses provide us with something tangible to hang on to, especially at such panic-driven times."
-Angelo Paul Ramunni
The Stone Mason
"...This fellow was a stone mason for over forty years here in New England. I took out a stone pocket cross and handed it to him, suggesting that this might also be a nice way to remember his son Tom. I told him to keep it on his person and that way he might feel a closeness to Tom and God.
He looked at me with incredulous eyes and asked where I had gotten that cross. He had never seen anything so beautiful in all his life... For someone who works with stone all his life, I would expect that he could make something like a pocket cross. But it turns out that trying to cut these small stone crosses is not easy..."

The Cross that Protects
"...she began to tell me about her son Jeff. He was recently called up for a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Being 18-years-old, and her only son, this just terrified her. I took the food and drink from her hands and gave her a stone pocket cross. I told her to give it to Jeff and that he should always keep it on his person. She was stunned and shocked. She told me that she had been looking for something to send to him to help protect him and now she found it. She had never seen anything like that cross and could not imagine where I got it from...
One year later...to the day...
I was at the same party and at some point, I saw the main door open and in she comes. She sees me immediately and quickly comes over to me. With a huge beaming smile she says, "Guess what's happening tonight?" I was stumped and just smiled and said that I didn't know. She again became very emotional and said, 'Paul, he's coming home tonight. He is on a plane landing at LaGuardia airport late tonight and he's safe and sound and he has kept that cross on him ever since he got it!' She gave me a huge hug and off she went."
