These alabaster bookends feature JPII's quote on the power of the Eucharist. Able to keep heavy books in line, they both organize and decorate your home. This pair of bookends makes the perfect personal first communion gift, and is an excellent present for everyone with a devotion to the Eucharist and to this holy man who witnessed to the love of Jesus in our modern age.
The quote from Pope St. John Paul II shows how truly he loved Jesus Christ and how this love was the catalyst and reason for his devotion and service to others.
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.
"The Eucharist is the secret of my day. It gives strength and meaning to all my activities of service to the Church and to the whole world.
