St. Frances Cabrini Relic Religious Necklace

Filled with a deep trust in God and endowed with a wonderful administrative ability, this remarkable woman soon founded schools, hospitals, and orphanages in this strange land and saw them flourish in the aid of Italian immigrants and children. At the time of her death, at Chicago, Illinois on December 22, 1917, her institute numbered houses in England, France, Spain, the United States, and South America. In 1946, she became the first American citizen to be canonized when she was elevated to sainthood by Pope Pius XII. St. Frances is the patroness of immigrants.

Novena to obtain favors through the intercession of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini

Almighty and Eternal Father, Giver of all Gifts, show us Your mercy, and grant, we beseech You, through the merits of Your faithful Servant, Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, that all who invoke her intercession may obtain what they desire according to the good pleasure of Your Holy Will ... (here name your request).
O Lord Jesus Christ, Savior of the world, mindful of Your bountiful goodness and love, deign, we implore You, through the tender devotion of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini for Your Sacred Heart, to hear our prayers and grant our petitions.
O God, the Holy Spirit, Comforter of the afflicted, Fountain of Light and Truth, through the ardent zeal of Your humble handmaid, Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, grant us Your all-powerful aid in our necessities, sanctify our souls and fill our minds with Divine Light that we may see the Holy Will of God in all things.
Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, beloved spouse of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, intercede for us that the favor we now ask may be granted.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory, (Three Times)

I created this necklace with a very unique vintage relic medal of St. Frances Cabrini. I also added a vintage piece of a broken bracelet depicting Stations of the Cross on reverse of roses, vintage glass pearls and crystals.

I wanted to make it simple, unique but at the same time meaningful and bold.


This is the reverse of relic medal

Virgin Mary Cameo Altered Art Shrine Religious Necklace


I created another special locket shrine altered art necklace in honor of Our Blessed Mother with Baby Jesus, St. Jude and Infant of Prague.
I used amber and a stunning blister mother of pearl shell pendant and vintage cameo.
Inside locket I added a beautiful picture of Infant of Prague. On other side I added a tiny pocket statue of St. Jude, three Hail Mary beads from vintage rosary, tiny medal of Our Lady of Miraculous Medal, tiny cross and a polymer rose, all set in vintage lace.

Our Lady of Guadalupe and Catholic Medals Necklace

PATRONESS OF THE UNBORN

She was with child because she wore the Aztec Maternity Belt.

FEAST DAY DECEMBER 12
In 1531 a "Lady from Heaven" appeared to a poor Indian at Tepeyac, a hill northwest of Mexico City; she identified herself as the Mother of the True God, instructed him to have the bishop build a temple on the site and left an image of herself imprinted miraculously on his tilma, a poor quality cactus-cloth, which should have deteriorated in 20 years but shows no sign of decay 474 years later and still defies all scientific explanations of its origin
I created this necklace in honor of Our most humble Lady of Guadalupe using this beautiful pendant. Her picture is encased in glass and soldered together to give it a very unique finish.
To the necklace I added stabilized turquoise and a large coral bead.
Catholic medals include St. Theresa, St. Benedict, St. Francis Cabrini, Archangel St. Raphael and others.

This is a close up of the beautiful pendant.

Divine Child, Saints, Religious Medals Charm Bracelet



PRAYER TO THE CHILD JESUS

Remember, oh sweetest Child Jesus, that you said to the Venerable Margaret of the Most Blessed Sacrament, and through her, to all your devotees, these so consoling words for our poor overwhelmed and suffering mankind: "Everything that you want to request, ask for it through the merits of my infancy and nothing will be denied to you". Full of trust in You, oh Jesus! Who are truth itself, I come to present my necessities.

Help me lead an authentic Christian life, to obtain a happy eternity. By the infinite merits of your incarnation and your childhood, grant me the grace that I am requesting of you (here state the requested grace). I commit myself to you, oh Omnipotent Child, confident that you will heed my plea and will fortify me in hope. Amen.

I created this bracelet in honor of Child Jesus "Divine Child" using a very unique figural medal of Divine Child encased in glass.

I used many other Catholic medals as well including St. Theresa, Mother Theresa, St. John of God, St. Benedict, Archangel St. Raphael, St. Padre Pio, Sorrowful Mother and a unique Our Lady of La Salette Crucifix and others.

I added amber color glass beads and beautiful lampwork beads



This is a close up of the unique figural medal of Divine Child Jesus


Our Lady of La Salette Crucifix. The following information is from a description from an account on the Apparition of Our Lady of La Salette describing the crucifix (The Holy Virgin had a most pretty cross hanging round Her neck. This cross seemed golden, (I say golden rather than gold-plated, for I have sometimes seen objects which were golden with varying shades of gold, which had a much more beautiful effect on my eyes than simple gold-plate). On this shining, beautiful cross, there was a Christ, it was Our Lord on the Cross. Near both ends of the cross there was a hammer, and at the other end, a pair of tongs. The Christ was skin-coloured, but He shone dazzling; and the light shone forth from his holy body seemed like brightly shining darts which pierced my heart with the desire to melt inside Him. At times, the Christ appeared to be dead. His head was bent forward and His body seemed to give way, as if about to fall, had He not been held back by the nails which held him to the Cross.)

Blessed be God. Amen.
I created this necklace in honor of Sacred Heart of Jesus in a baroque and Art Nouveau style using a beautiful large natural Jasper stone to add an ornate stamping and a pocket statue of Sacred Heart of Jesus and attached an Art Nouveau Angel charm.

St. Kateri Tekakwitha Relic and Saints Religious Bracelet


Native American from the Turtle Clan, she was known as 'Lily of the Mohawks'.

Kateri Tekakwitha, known as “the Lily of the Mohawk”, was born in 1656 of a captive Algonquin mother and an Iroquois chieftain. Her mother was a Christian but dared not baptize Kateri or her younger brother. When an epidemic of smallpox broke out in 1660, the little girl lost her mother and brother, perhaps also her father at that time; she herself nearly succumbed to the malady.

Her uncle, who adopted her, later wanted her to marry a young Iroquois her own age, but she refused, having already experienced the horror of the Iroquois brutalities. When in 1675 Father Jacques de Lamberville, Jesuit missionary, discovered on the banks of the Mohawk River this “beautiful lily”, he transplanted her to the mission of St. Francis Xavier near Montreal, which had been founded a few years before. She received her first Communion there on Christmas day of 1676.

In 1679, on the feast of the Annunciation, with the authorization of one of the Fathers at the mission, Kateri privately pronounced a vow of perpetual chastity and consecrated herself to the Blessed Virgin. From that time on, she and her rosary were inseparable. Her health had never been strong, and her penances contributed to weakening it further. It was during Holy Week of 1680 that this young Indian maiden quietly expired, invoking the names of Jesus and Mary. Miracles and favors were attributed to her soon after her death

I created this bracelet with a beautiful color medal of St. Kateri adding beautiful and large copper conchas and turquoise that makes this bracelet unique and bold.

The Catholic medals I added are Blessed Sacrament, Our Lady of Miraculous Medal, St. Martha, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Benedict, Divine Mercy, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Virgin Mary, St. John of God, Infant of Prague and a very unique wood figural medal of Our Lady of Guadalupe

I added a tiny One Decade Rosary made with turquoise beads and tiny crucifix

I also added a beautiful turquoise horse bead I purchased in a local store where they sell mainly Southwest jewelry and beads- I just love the feel and look of it.

Our Lady of Miraculous Medal Religious Bracelet



I just love this figural image of Our Lady of Miraculous Medal encased in glass, so special and unique. It just makes Our Blessed Mother stand out more no matter how much I add to the bracelet.
I created this bracelet with vintage and new Catholic medals, including a Sacred Heart cameo. I added pearls, glass and lamp work beads.



Our Lady of Guadalupe and Vintage Coins Bracelet


In 1531 a "Lady from Heaven" appeared to a poor Indian at Tepeyac, a hill northwest of Mexico City; she identified herself as the Mother of the True God, instructed him to have the bishop build a temple on the site and left an image of herself imprinted miraculously on his tilma, a poor quality cactus-cloth, which should have deteriorated in 20 years but shows no sign of decay 474 years later and still defies all scientific explanations of its origin.

PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE

O Virgin of Guadalupe,
Mother of the Americas,
grant to our homes the grace of loving
and respecting life in its beginnings,
with the same love with which
you conceived in your womb
the life of the Son of God.
Blessed Virgin Mary,
Mother of Fair Love,
protect our families so that
they may always be united
and bless the upbringing of our children.

Our hope, look upon us with pity,
teach is to go continually to Jesus,
and if we fall
help us to rise again and return to Him
through the confession of our faults
and our sins in the Sacrament of penance,
which gives peace to the soul.
We beg you to grant us a great love
of all the holy Sacraments,
which are, as it were,
the signs that your Son left us on earth.
Thus, Most Holy Mother,
with the peace of God in our consciences,
with our hearts free from evil and hatred,
we will be able to bring to all others
true joy and peace,
which come to us from your Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ,
who with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
lives and reigns for ever and ever.

Amen.
(Pope John Paul II.)


I love creating a bracelet to honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe. I love using roses as well as the roses represent Our Blessed Mother


THE ROSE BEING REPRESENTATIVE OF MARY The rose is regarded as the "queen of flowers", and often symbolizes Mary, the Queen of Heaven. Also an almost universal symbol of perfect love, its color, perfection of form, and fragrance, as well as its thorns signifies Mary's role in salvation history as the Mother of God the Savior who was crowned with thorns and shed His blood on the Cross for love of mankind. The rose, arising from a thorny bush, also signifies Mary, the Mystical Rose, "our fallen Nature's solitary boast", who alone of the human race was conceived without sin. It also may contain a parallel with the fiery thorn bush from which God spoke to Moses: Mary, immaculately conceived, was the means through which God became Man, The Word made flesh.)

On this bracelet I used stabilized turquoise and vintage Mexican coins besides the Catholic medals. For a final touch I used a vintage alpaca charm

Healing the Family Tree

This is a very powerful healing prayer that will help alleviate your spirit. You may do it several times to release everything that must be released.


HEALING THE FAMILY TREE

Heavenly Father, I come before You as your child, in great need of your help; I have physical health needs, emotional needs, spiritual needs, and interpersonal needs. Many of my problems have been caused by my own failures, neglect, and sinfulness, for which I humbly beg your forgiveness, Lord. But I also ask you to forgive the sins of my ancestors whose failures have left their effects on me in the form of unwanted tendencies, behavior patterns, and defects in body, mind, and spirit. Heal me, Lord, of all these disorders.

With Your help I sincerely forgive everyone, living or dead members of my family tree, who have directly offended me or my loved ones in any way, or those whose sins have resulted in our present sufferings and disorders. In the name of Your divine Son Jesus, and in the power of His Holy Spirit, I as You Father, to deliver me and my entire family tree from the influence of the evil one.

Free all living and dead members of my family tree, including those in adoptive relationships, and those in extended family relationships, from every contaminating form of bondage. By your loving concern for us, heavenly Father, and by the shed blood of Your Precious Son Jesus, I beg you to extend your blessing to me and all my living and deceased relatives. Heal every negative effects in future generations of my family tree.

I symbolically place the cross of Jesus over the head of each person in my family tree, and between each generation; I ask You to let the cleansing blood of Jesus purify the blood lines in the family lineage. Send protective angels to encamp around us, and permit Archangel Raphael, the patron of healing, to administer your divine healing power to all of us, even in areas of genetic disability.
Give special power to our family members’ guardian angels to heal, protect, guide and encourage each of us in all our needs. Let Your healing power be released at this very moment, and let it continue as long as Your sovereignty permits.

In our family tree, Lord, replace all bondage with a Holy bonding in family love. Let there be an ever-deeper bonding with You, Lord, by the Holy Spirit, to your Son, Jesus. Let the family of the Holy Trinity pervade our family with it’s tender, warm loving presence, so that our family may recognize and manifest that love in all our relationships. Al of our unknown needs we include with this petition that we pray in Jesus’ precious name. Amen

This prayer is one of the few in the Spiritual Warfare Prayers book I obtained from Valentine Publishing home or online at www.CatholicWarriors.com

St. Benedict Catholic Medals Bracelet

Very powerful intercessor
PATRONAGE: Against evil, witchcraft; against poison; agricultural workers; carvers; civil engineers; copper smiths; dying people


The Medal of St. Benedict is powerful to ward off all dangers of body and soul coming from the evil spirit Medals of Saint Benedict are sacramentals that may be blessed legitimately by any priest or deacon

THE JUBILEE MEDAL OF ST. BENEDICT

The power of St. Benedict is revealed in this small object that has been fostered by his spiritual sons many years. Marvelous is the aid which the St. Benedict Medal affords to its devout wearers in the manifold necessities of soul and body. On this account the Medal is well known and widely used throughout the Christian world; everywhere it is regarded as a highly favored object of devotion.

St. Benedict (born at Nursia, Italy, in 480) had a profound veneration for the holy Cross and for our Saviour Crucified. In virtue of the Sign of the Cross, he wrought many miracles and exercised great power over the spirits of darkness. In consequence of the great veneration in which St. Benedict was held from the early Middle Ages, it followed that a Medal was struck, one side of which represents St. Benedict holding the Cross in one hand and the Holy Rule in the other. Around the image of St. Benedict are these words in Latin "May his presence protect us in the hour of death." St. Benedict has ever been the patron of the dying, because of the circumstances attending his own most glorious death, for he breathed forth his soul while standing in prayer before the Most Blessed Sacrament.
The reverse of the Medal shows the image of the Cross. Around the margin are the initials of Latin words which form verses supposed to have originated with the holy Father Benedict himself. The English translation is: "Be gone Satan! Suggest not to me thy vain things. The cup thou properest me is evil; drink thou thy poison." In the angles formed by the arms of the Cross are the letters C.S.P.B., signifying "Cross of the holy Father Benedict." The letters on the Cross itself have this meaning: "May the holy Cross be my light; let not the dragon be my guide."

PRAYER OF ST. GERTRUDE IN HONOR OF ST. BENEDICT

I salute thee, through the Heart of Jesus, O great St. Benedict! I rejoice in Thy glory, and I give thanks to Our Lord for all the benefits which He has showered upon thee: I praise Him and glorify Him and I offer thee, for an increase of thy joy and honor, the most gentle Heart of Jesus. Deign therefore, O beloved Father, to pray for us, that we may become according to the Heart of God. Amen
I cannot emphasize enough how powerful St. Benedict is when being attacked by evil. He is ready to intercede for you and your family.

On this bracelet I added a large St. Benedict medal and many more Catholic medals. The colors I used on this bracelet is black to represent his robe and gold to represent his radiance with the fire of God.

Catholic medals include St. John the Baptist, Our Lady of Fatima, St. Catherine of Sienna, Our Lady of Sorrows and Ecce Homo, St. Dymphna, St. George, St. Michael and others.

St. Dymphna Relic Catholic Bracelet


The site where she died is known for its miraculous healings of the insane and possessed. There is now a well-known institution on the site, and her relics are reported to cure insanity and epilepsy

Patronage for nervous and mental afflictions, family happiness, epilepsy, sleepwalking, family happiness, incest victims, mental health caregivers, martyrs, loss of parents, psychiatrists, rape victims, runaways, therapists


Dymphna was fourteen when her mother died. Damon is said to have been afflicted with a mental illness, brought on by his grief. He sent messengers throughout his town and other lands to find some woman of noble birth, resembling his wife, who would be willing to marry him. When none could be found, his evil advisers told him to marry his own daughter. Dymphna fled from her castle together with St. Gerebran, her confessor and two other friends. Damon found them in Belgium. He gave orders that the priest's head be cut off. Then Damon tried to persuade his daughter to return to Ireland with him. When she refused, he drew his sword and struck off her head. She was then only fifteen years of age. Dymphna received the crown of martyrdom in defense of her purity about the year 620. She is the patron of those suffering from nervous and mental afflictions. Many miracles have taken place at her shrine, built on the spot where she was buried in Gheel, Belgium.

On this bracelet I added beautiful lampwork beads and natural rose quartz gemstones, a beautiful stone known as "The Love Stone" with a peaceful feel to it.

Catholic medals include St. Dymphna 3rd class relic medal, St. Joan of Arc, Divine Mercy, Our Lady of Miraculous Medal, Archangel St. Raphael, Our Lady of Guadalupe with Holy Child of Atocha, St. Michael and others.

Virgin Mary "Mother of Mothers" Catholic Bracelet


MOTHER OF SWEETNESS

Mother of Sweetness, the faith and love with which thou giveth thy Divine Son urges me to open my heart to the love of thy heart so that the sweetness of thy Mother's love may touch me deeply.

May the sweetness of thy heart cause me to share with others thy love for Jesus. When I meditate on the mysteries of Jesus Christ in the most Holy Rosary, ever-Virgin Mother Mary, reveal to me the sweetness of thine own Immaculate Heart.

Amen.

I feel so blessed to be able to find such a unique and beautiful medal of Virgin Mary as Mother of Mothers depicting Virgin Mary with Baby Jesus and a mother with child underneath.

I added other Catholic medals of Virgin Mary, St. Therese, St. Clare, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Our Lady of Lourdes, St. Bernadette, St. Michael, St. Joseph and surrounded them with many beautiful lampwork beads.

Divine Mercy Catholic Bracelet


Three O'clock in the Afternoon "The hour of the Great Mercy"
As one reads the Diary of St. Maria Faustina Kowalska, one comes upon this little prayer.
You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls and the ocean of mercy
opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop
the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us (Diary, 1319).
Immediately after these words, and without any further explanation, Saint Faustina records this unexpected request of Our Lord.
At three o'clock implore My mercy especially for sinners; and if only for a brief moment, immerse yourself in My Passion, particularly in My abandonment at the moment of agony. This is the hour of great mercy for the whole world... In this hour, I will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request of Me in virtue of My passion. (Diary, 1320)
About four months later, attain, without any introduction, Saint Faustina penned these words of Our Lord:
I remind you, My daughter, that as often as you hear the clock strike the third hour, immerse yourself completely in My mercy. Adoring and glorifying it; Invoke its omnipotence for the whole world, and particularly for poor sinners, for at that moment (mercy) was opened wide for every soul. In this hour you can obtain everything for yourself and for others for the asking; it was the hour of grace for the whole world--- Mercy triumphed over justice.
My daughter, try your best to make the Stations of the Cross in this hour, provided that your duties permit it; and if you are not able to make the Stations of the Cross, then at least step into the chapel for a moment and adore in the Blessed Sacrament, My Heart, which is full of mercy; and should be unable to step into the chapel, immerse yourself in prayer there, where you happen to be, if only for a very brief instant, I claim veneration for My mercy from every creature (Diary, 1572).

A remembrance, then, of the hour in which the saving death of Jesus was accomplished; of the hour when all was "finished" and, with His last breath, Jesus bequeathed His Holy Spirit "for the life of the world"; of the hour, too, when our thoughts run to the moment of the piercing of Christ's side; from which there flowed immediately "a fount of mercy for us"; and of the hour in which the kingdom of God was opened for all as for the repentant thief- such a remembrance is an appropriate act of veneration of the Divine Mercy that Jesus appears to desire very much, and, in view of the sweeping promise attached to it, appears, likewise, to prize very highly.
We would do well in this same hour to say another little prayer, taught to Saint Faustina by Our Lord, which she repeated every morning and often during the day to renew her act of consecration to the Divine Mercy:
O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You (Diary, 84)






I created this bracelet symbolizing the blood and water gushed from the Heart of Jesus using red Czech. glass and a white Czech. crystal. I added a very unique figural statue of Our Lord Divine Mercy encased in glass.

I added a beautiful vintage medal of St. Christopher, other Catholic medals include Our Lady of Miraculous Medal, Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Archangel St. Raphael, St. Rita and others. I also added very unque two tone glass pearls.

Deign, O Virgin, full of goodness and kindness, to receive my humble prayers and to obtain for me that purity for which thou didst sacrifice the most alluring pleasures of the world, that strength of soul which made thee resist the most terrible attacks and that ardent love for our Lord Jesus Christ, which the most frightful torments could not extinguish in thee. So, that wearing thy holy cord and imitating thee in this life, I may one day be crowned with thee in heaven. Amen

When I'm inspired to create a bracelet in honor to St. Philomena, I feel a very strong youthful energy of a very lovely and uplifting young lady that loves nature from flowers to birds and loves colors as well, reminds her of God's rainbows.
