These alabaster bookends feature a scene of St. Joseph holding the sleeping baby Jesus. Able to keep heavy books in line, they both organize and decorate your home. This pair of bookends makes the perfect personal gift for fathers and anyone with a devotion to this great model of manliness and purity.
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.
Each measures roughly 6" x 8", including the 4"x 6" inset image plaque, and is 3" deep.
"Beloved Saint Joseph, through your intercession, grant me a spirit of sacrifice, of a humility, of self-denial, a great love for Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, and a tender love for Mary, my Mother. Saint Joseph, be with me living, be with me dying, and obtain for me a favorable judgement from Jesus, my merciful Savior. Amen."
