These alabaster bookends depict the Holy Spirit descending like a fiery dove. Keeping heavy books in line, they both organize and decorate your home. This pair of bookends makes the perfect personal Catholic gift, reminding us of the power of the Holy Spirit.
The "Come Holy Spirit" prayer asks the Third person of the Trinity, send by Christ to guide the Church, to renew the face of the earth by inspiring the hearts of all the faithful to ignite in Divine love.
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.
"Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful and kindle in them the fire of Your love.
Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created, and You shall renew the face of the Earth."
