These alabaster bookends features Christ with the Host, His Body, and the Chalice of His Blood. Keeping heavy books in line, they both organize and decorate your home. This pair of bookends makes the perfect First Communion gift or makes an excellent present for anyone with a strong devotion to the Eucharist.
These words are from Luke 22:19, and are the Church's words of consecration which the priest prays to transform the bread into the Body of 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" x 8", including the 4"x 6" inset image plaque, and is 3" deep.
"This is My Body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me."
