These alabaster bookends feature classic image of Pope John Paul II holding aloft a monstrance containing the Body of Christ. Able to keep heavy books in line, they both organize and decorate your home. This pair of bookends makes the perfect personal gift 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 prayer is the beginning of the Catholic Eucharistic hymn, "Oh Sacrament Most Holy." It expresses the devotion and love John Paul had for Jesus in the Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist.
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.
"Oh Sacrament Most Holy, O Sacrament Divine, all praise and all Thanksgiving be every moment Thine!"
