These alabaster bookends feature the Holy Spirit descending upon the host and chalice. Keeping heavy books in line, they both organize and decorate your home. This pair of bookends makes the perfect personal First Communion gift or an excellent present for those with a special devotion to the Eucharist.
The prayer from the mass calls to mind the humble words of the centurion who asked Jesus to heal his servant. As the man's faith in Jesus saved him, so we hope to be saved by Christ.
The bookends are made from stone-cast alabaster here in our shop in Steubenville, Ohio. Alabaster is a building and decorating material created from the mineral gypsum that has been used since the time of the ancient Egyptian Pharaohs. It boasts an attractive smooth finish and will last for years to come.
Each measures roughly 6"x8", including the 4"x6" inset image plaque, and is 3" deep.
"Lord I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed."
