Devotional Saint Candles

Jesus CandleA beautiful idea to deepen your prayer ritual or daily prayers is to have a candle lit in your home, a lovely candle displaying one of your favourite Saints, Jesus or the Holy Mother. As you pray, you can gaze upon the flickering flame and recite a heartfelt prayer to your beloved Saint or Jesus asking for intercession, faith and guidance. It’s very soothing and can bring much comfort to your soul.

We have a beautiful selection of devotional candles at Simple Blessings, with full colour pictures of the Saints for you to choose from – with each candle displaying a prayer on the reverse. This is a popular range on our web site and we will be expanding it in the near future. Most of the candles have a windproof lid, making them suitable for outdoors or even a grave. Burning time is approx. 68 hours and they can be found on this web page: http://simpleblessings.co.uk/saint_candles/index.html

Novena Prayers to Our Lady of Lourdes

novenaAre you, or someone you dearly love trying to cope with an illness? Have you often said prayers on behalf of your friend or relative to ask the Saints, Angels, God, Jesus or the Holy Mother to intercede and help heal the patient? It’s hard to live with any kind of illness, but having to see a loved one suffering is also very harrowing. Have you tried saying a Novena over nine days for someone who’s in pain or ill? It may bring them strength and much comfort…..

What is a Novena?

In the Roman Catholic tradition, a novena is a series of prayers which are said over the course of nine days. The goal of going through a novena is to ask for grace, and to deepen one’s spiritual connection with God. Although the practice of the novena originated in the Catholic community, similar prayers are also said in other Christian sects.

A novena may be said for oneself, usually as a request for assistance of some form or another, or on behalf of someone else. A classic example of a novena is a prayer asking for a sick relative to be healed. In devout communities, people may say novenas for strangers, or say “I’ll make a novena for you” upon hearing of someone else’s troubles.

We believe that saying a Novena to Our Lady of Lourdes is a lovely way to connect to the Holy Mother who is the Patron Saint of bodily ills, and it will help to bring comfort and solace to the patient. We have a wide selection of Novena prayer booklets on our web site here: http://simpleblessings.co.uk/novena_booklets/index.html

Please feel free to ask us any questions about prayers and novenas, and we’ll be more than happy to help! May all your prayers and thoughts be filled with God’s everlasting love, light and wonder. Until next time, have a wonderful week – with much love from Simple Blessings

Saint statues – Saints

We love our Saints at Simple Blessings! Saint Francis of Assisi – Saint Joseph – Saint Michael – Saint Jude – Our Lady of Lourdes – Divine Mercy – Saint Anthony, we could go on and on…. but we won’t! Needless to say, if we find something with a beloved Saint on it, we tend to buy it for our customers. We adore the comfort Saints can bring to us, and we know how much strength and love they bring to you too.

Saints can heal the heart and soul. Prayers to a Saint can bring about miracles. How often do your prayers become answered when you ask Saint Joseph for help, or Saint Michael for protection? Saint Jude – the saint for hopeless causes – has been used quite often in our household! Lost something? Pray to Saint Anthony. How comforting and beautiful are the Saints? They are real people, living the gospel through life. They’re an inspiration and lifeline to us all.

Our new Urban Steel Pendant Collection has been very popular with our male customers, and the delicate 9ct Gold Crosses have already sold out! We’ve had some lovely feedback about the new designs and delicate features on our new Sterling Silver pendant collection. Hopefully, in the New Year we will bring you an even wider selection of jewellery and prayer beads.
The Handmade Rosaries and Handmade Devotional Chaplets have been a wonderful success, so many customers have bought our beautiful designs for special occasions and emailed us to express their joy in receiving their new gift. It means so much to us to hear those lovely comments! Thank you all so much! We hope to bring you an even greater choice in the New Year, as our local artisan Emma Jane Brown has been

beavering away creating new designs especially for us. We feel so blessed to have her work available to our customers, she truly loves sharing her creations with you all and hopes they bring you much joy, peace and love to your heart.

If you have any special requests for a devotional chaplet or rosary bead colour, please feel free to email us with your requirements. We will pass on your ideas and thoughts to Emma Jane who will be happy to help create your own personal prayer aid.
Saint Jude and Saint Therese Chaplets are very popular on the web site, and the new Guardian Angel finger rosaries are becoming a fast seller too!
We hope the new designs will bring you much joy and light into your life, being able to offer such beautiful rosary beads for devotional prayer brings us all closer to God. It’s a blessing to be apart of your daily prayer regime. We hope you enjoy many years of prayer with your handmade rosaries and chaplets.
