Alabaster bookends honor St. Therese of Lisieux with a beautiful image of the Little Flower and a short prayer. Keeping heavy books in line, these bookends both organize and decorate your home. This pair of bookends makes the perfect personal gift for anyone with with a devotion to this beautiful saint.
The image features St. Therese tenderly holding a crucifix and a rose bouquet. She promised to spend her heaven helping others on earth and to send done a "shower of roses."
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.
"God our Father, You destined Your kingdom for Your children who are humble. Help us to imitate the way of St. Therese, so that, by her intercession, we may attain the eternal glory which You Promised. Amen."
