Our prayer totes are spiritual armor for Catholics to defend and protect themselves against evil. They give you the tools necessary to grow in wisdom and love for Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Blessed Mother Mary. Since they are pivotal to begin and complete your journey to heaven, they vary in content to fit different needs, goals and resources.
First tier is a Basic Prayer Tote created to give basic essential information for neophytes coming into the Church or just for curiosity. Therefore, it offers a few sacramentals and booklets instructing what and how to pray, as well as basic church doctrine, not to mention a great gift to enlighten one on the Catholic faith.
The second tier is the Essential Prayer Tote to be used for prayer altars, enliven your faith, love and understanding of God. It includes booklets, pamphlets, statues, images, bible, DVD’s, medals and so much more. Surely, a must have for returning Catholics and Catholics who have a limited library of prayers.
The third tier is our stellar Ultimate Prayer Tote include high quality sacramentals. In addition, the elements will deepen your faith and love for God, Mary, the angels, saints as well as enriching your knowledge, understanding and history of the Church. Lastly, it is excellent as a prayer altar, protection for your home, family, or to share with others.
For your convenience, use the tote to hold all your treasures. These totes are to be shared with family, friends or strangers. They are intended to encourage a prayer life and to spread the word of God and Our Lady. Everyone needs these weapons.
Everything in the tote is considered a sacramental. Sacramentals are designed to give graces to us through our devotion for the love of God. The stronger our devotion the more graces we receive.
They remind us Our Lord and/or Our Lady, and this creates an image in our mind that we have fallen short in God’s glory and have sinned. We then reflect on our sins and our sorrow for committing them.
It is always good to keep sacramentals around your home and on your person. They bring many graces to repel Satan and his evil spirits that are so strong nowadays.
Evil does not like sacramentals. Think of the "Exorcist" and Satan’s wrath for Holy Water or the crucifix. They are our full spiritual armour of God to fight the demons.
Use or wear sacramentals daily.
Examples of sacramentals are holy water, blessed oil or salt, medals, rosaries, the sign of the cross, prayers, scapulars, statues, crucifixes, candles, holy cards etc. All of these give graces. In the current times, we need all the graces we can receive. Put on your armour of God! Be battle ready!

Blessed Items and Blessings
It is against canon law to sell blessed items. All of our Miraculous Medals come to us Blessed, and we give them to you FREE. They are not included in the tote price.
We suggest you take your tote to a catholic priest and have it blessed. Also, ask him to put an exorcism blessing on the items. If possible, have the priest come to your home and bless your house and its belongings.
If you are unable to have your kit blessed by a priest, the Church allows you to invoke a blessing yourself. The Catechism of the Catholic Church (paragraph1669) teaches that lay people, because of their baptismal priesthood, may administer certain blessings. Yes, we can bless sacramental ourselves. However, it is best if a priest or deacon blesses items concerning ecclesial and sacramental life.
There are many forms of blessings long ones, short ones, and super short ones. There are also many variances depending on what or who is to be blessed. As well as ones just for rosaries, scapulars, homes etc. However, it is very simple to bless things and people. You can look them up in a Book of Blessings.
Here is one formulary for religious articles:
While making the Sign of the Cross over your tote, say:
Lord show us your mercy and love. And grant us your salvation.
Then read a short text of Scripture such as:
"For we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit itself intercedes with inexpressible groanings. And the one who searches hearts knows what is the intention of the Spirit, because it intercedes for the holy ones according to God’s will."
Then with hands outstretched over the tote say:
May the merciful Lord enliven and strengthen by his blessing (make a sign of the cross with you hand over the tote) the spirit of devotion and filial love in your hearts, so that you may walk blamelessly through this life and happily reach life everlasting. Amen.
A very short blessing:
Make the sign of the cross over the tote while saying:
May this tote and the one who uses it be blessed, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Don't forget to sprinkle Holy Water over the items!
