These alabaster bookends feature an icon of Our Lady of Good Health. Able to keep heavy books in line, they both organize and decorate your home. This pair of bookends makes the perfect personal gift for anyone with devotion to Our Blessed Mother.
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.

"Prayer to our Lady of Good Health
Most holy Virgin, venerated with the title of Our Lady of Good Health, because in every age you have come to the assistance of the sick, we ask you to intercede for us, fro those dear to us, and for all who are ill. Obtain for us health of mind an body or at least the strength to accept our sufferings in union with Christ our Redeemer. Mary, Health of the Sick, pray for us!"
