Everything in the kits 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.
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.
Blessed Items and BlessingsIt 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 kit.
We suggest you take your kit 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 (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 kit, say:
Say: Lord show us your mercy and love.
Reply: And grant us your salvation.
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 kit say:
Say: May the merciful Lord enliven and strengthen by his blessing (make a sign of the cross with you hand over the kit) the spirit of devotion and filial love in your hearts, so that you may walk blamelessly through this life and happily reach life everlasting.
A very short formulary and to the point blessing is:
Say: May this kit and the one who uses it be blessed, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. (Make the sign of the cross over the kit while saying this)
Another short one:
(While making the Sign of the Cross over the kit) say:
Oh, Lord, I seek your blessing upon this kit, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen
