Our prayer totes are tailored to give you the fundamental basics that one needs to grow in wisdom and love for Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Blessed Mother Mary. They are pivotal to begin your journey to heaven. We have three different tiers of totes depending on your needs, desires and resources. First is a very bare Basic Prayer Tote created to give only essential information for newcomers on what and how to pray or to give as a gift to enlighten someone about the Catholic Church. The Essential Prayer Tote is great for prayer altars, items to help you enrich your faith, and deepen your love and understanding of God. The third tier is the Ultimate Prayer Tote. It is awesome since it has more components, higher quality pieces, and will deepen your love for God, Mary, the angels, saints and the church by giving you a greater history, understanding and knowledge of the church. This can make an excellent prayer altar, protect your home and self, or share with others. For your convenience, use the tote bag to hold your treasures. These totes have the armor you need to fight and survive the coming battles of spiritual warfare.
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 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. This is why 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 cannon law to sell blessed items. All of our miraculous medals come to us blessed, and we give them to you FREE. We give a freewill donation for them. This is not included in the price of your tote.
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 tote blessed by a priest, the Church allows you to invoke a blessing yourself. The Catechism of the Catholic Church (1669) teaches that lay people, because of their baptismal priesthood, may administer certain blessings. Yes, we can bless sacramental ourselves.
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 are a few suggestions 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:
"And whatever you do, in word or in deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."
"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."
“And I tell you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”
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 short formulary and to the point blessing is:
Make the sign of the cross over the tote while saying this:
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.
Another very short one:
While making the Sign of the Cross over the tote say:
Oh, Lord, I seek your blessing upon this tote, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
