Expectant Mother blessing cord. Catholic door hanger gift for the new mother.
This is a home blessing cord made of pastel colored hemp cording, pink, yellow and light blue. It has 6 holy medals and 6 14mm plastic beads.
The holy medals:
--- Divino Nino -- The Divine Child, a devotion began by an Italian, Salesian priest, Fr. John Rizzo, in Bogota Colombia in the early 1900's. Entrust your pregnancy to the care of little Child Jesus.
--- St. Bridget of Ireland -- she is the patron saint of babies, infants, midwives, and newborns.
--- St. Philomena -- she is the patron saint of babies, children, infants, toddlers, and patron saint against barrenness, infertility and sterility.
--- St. Elizabeth of the Visitation -- she is the patron saint of expectant mothers and pregnant women.
--- St. Raymond of Nonato/Nonnatus -- he is the patron saint of babies, childbirth, children, expectant mothers, infants, midwives, newborns, obstetricians, and pregnant women.
--- Madonna of the Streets/God Chose Me -- Prayer to Mary on a prayer card with Ferruzzi's image of Madonna of the Streets: "I put my little babe under your protection, Mary, my Mother. Make its tiny mind grow up to love the truths of faith; consecrate its will to the service of God; fill its heart with love for its Creator. Fashion its little body in all perfection: let its organs be sound, its senses acute, all its members strong and healthy. You can obtain this favour for me and my child, most powerful Mother. I put my trust in you. Amen."
the blessing cord is about 10 inches long. The braided loop will fit around most standard door knobs (approx. 3 inches in diameter). The hemp cord is braided and knotted, the end knots are glued. This blessing cord has 3 strands of cording, "doubled" at the top knot for 6 strands flowing down.
"This Blessing Cord is a reminder to all who see it that they are in place that has been blessed by the Lord their God. God alone gives us protection from evil, but His saints give us reminders too, by their heroic lives, of blessings and protection from the evil one. Each Blessing Cord is made from cording, beads and holy medals. It can be displayed any where you would like; a door knob, a hook, a bed post, in your car. Catholics can get this sacramental blessed by their priest."
"Certain sacramentals are considered to offer spiritual protection. They are not magical charms, nor do they have power themselves (though God's power can act through them), but they do help to turn our hearts toward God and remind us that He is our refuge and our hope. Without His help, we are powerless against sin, the snares of the devil, and the lures of the world." ~~TAN books
