Grow in your faith at home and share it with your guests using our Divine Mercy Catholic Home Doorpost Blessing! These spiritual aids are available in ivory or bronze stonecast alabaster and feature a sacred image printed on wood. These hangers are meant to be placed near the entrance of your home as a reminder of your Christian duty to love God above all things. They are beautiful home decor items and would make a fine housewarming gift.
Catholic Home Doorpost Blessing originate from the Jewish Mezuzah (see below). Although this Judeo-Christian tradition evolved into the hanging of crucifixes and holy water fonts near one's door, the Mezuzah tradition has been rediscovered as the faithful seek more ways of calling God and His commands to mind as they exit their home to work in the world or enter it to entertain guests and tend to family. May these threshold hangers serve as a daily reminder of God's command to love - especially to love Him above all things!
Our House Blessing hangers have a peaked-roof design etched with a summary of the greatest commandment (see Matthew 22:38): "Love God with all your heart. Love your neighbor as yourself." Underneath, this specific threshold hanger features an image of Jesus touching his heart with red and white rays coming out with the words "Jesus, I Trust in You" at the bottom.
Handcrafted at our shop in Steubenville, OH. Each hanger measures approximately 3.25"x6".
The prayer sticker on the back reads:
"BLESS the Four Corners of this house, and be the Lintel Blest;
And bless the hearth, and bless the board, and bless each place of Rest;
And bless the Door that opens wide to Strangers as to Kin;
And bless each crystal Windowpane that lets the Starlight in;
And bless the Rooftree overhead and every sturdy Wall;
The Peace of Man, the Peace of God, the Peace of Love on All!"

I purchased this as a gift for my sister. She loves it and will display proudly.
Words escape me - this item is indescribably beautiful and so splendidly crafted. I did know these were handmade but honestly I was expecting plastic. I highly recommend for every
Catholic home - as a wedding gift, bridal shower, Christmas, Easter, housewarming gift. Absolutely stunning! Since it is what I think is alabaster plaster - you do need to make sure you have it securely fastened to the wall. My doorpost blessing does not stand up on its own but I did get it to hang outdoors by my front door. I would suggest making the hanging notch in the back differently so it would be more able to be more securely fastened.
The Divine Mercy doorpost blessing is beautiful. The quality exceeded my expectations. The bronze frame looks great with our dark wood door and light painted walls.
I purchased the ivory Divine Mercy and couldn't be more pleased. It is a beautiful work of art and I highly recommend.
This was much nicer than I expected. The picture is very beautiful and the bronze frame frames it beautifully. I purchased 4 for myself and friends as Easter gifts and have mine hanging by my front door so I can see it as I come and go during the day.
