Our Lady of Guadalupe Detail Bookends
These alabaster bookends feature the face Our Lady of Guadalupe and a short prayer. Able to keep heavy books in line, they both organize and decorate your home, making the perfect personal gift for all those who share St. Juan Diego's devotion to Our Blessed Mother. Our Lady of Guadalupe is patroness of the Pro-Life movement and the Americas.
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.
"Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mystical Rose, Ever Virgin Mary and Mother of the true God, obtain for us from your most holy Son the grace of a firm faith and a sure hope amid the bitterness of life, as well as an ardent love for your most adorable Son. Amen."
