The Passion of St Terese

“Without love, deeds, even the most brilliant, count as nothing.” 
― Thérèse de Lisieux

A pair of earrings to be worn as sacred altars for healing and beauty. I found these very old and very detailed St Therese medals in Liseux during my pilgrimage to sacred places in France. The medals are double sided - look at the small rose on the back of the one medal.

I spent a day in the town of Lisieux and visited the Basilica and the Church of St Therese of Lisieux, as well as her convent, the magnificent rose garden and the relics of her body in a glass coffin. It was a very intense and moving experience and the fragrance of roses were intense. I linked these very old an detailed small medals to two blood red faceted glass beads and two small glass puffer hearts. They are linked to two enameled silver roses which I brought back from Lourdes. The earrings themselves are sterling silver, 

With these earrings you will receive a bottle of blessed salts which I took with on the pilgrimage. These salts were taken to all the places where St Therese lived and prayed and where her body is lying. I also collected some of the rose petals from her garden which I mixed with the salts. Energy never dies. It merely changes form and salt is a very good absorber of energies - it also purifies lower energies. You can use these salts on your altar or where you meditate or you can add it to your bath water.

Images of the Divine carry enormous energy and Presence. There are various ways of explaining it, but the ancients believed that the Spirit of that aspect of the Divine lives in Its image and form. Those of us who can see light around living beings, can see the light around sacred objects. In holy places of pilgrimage one can often smell the fragrance of the Divine.

“A word or a smile is often enough to put fresh life in a despondent soul.” 

― Thérèse de Lisieux

Each one of my pendants, shrines, paintings and other sacred art are first infused with holy water from Lourdes (which I brought back), and then infused with holy relic oil of more than 53 Saints & pure essential oils. A mixture of one hundred oils are used, including frankincense, myrrh, spikenard, agarwood and rose. It is also immersed in blessed pink dead sea salts, infused with rose petals steeped in holy oil of a third relic of St Therese of Lisieux and it is packaged with blessed salts, frankincense and sprinkled with holy water collected form many sacred places in the world. So it becomes sort of holy object to be handled with reverence and care.

All my items are packaged beautifully and sent with a tracking number - postage included in the price.
