Oil dedicated to St Monica on prayer cloth

Oil dedicated to St Monica on prayer cloth is one of our new products to get our healing oils out to the public.  St Monica’s healing oil is dedicated to the mother of St. Augustine of Hippo.  She was born in 331 A.D. in Tagaste, which is present-day Algeria.

She was married off to the Roman pagan Patricius.  While Monica’s prayers and Christian deeds bothered Patricius, he is said to have respected her beliefs. Three children were born to Monica and Patricius: Augustine, Navigius, and Perpetua.

For years Monica prayed for her husband and mother-in-law, until finally, one year before Patricius’ death, she successfully converted them. She also put much prayer into the conversion of Augustine her wayward son.  The fact that he became one of the great doctors of the Church is testimony to the effectiveness of her prayers.

Tradition of oils

The tradition of anointing with sacred oil is very old indeed. It is used in sacraments and also as a devotional practice. The sick person is invited to apply oil on the part of their body they want healed.  As they do so, they are asked to pray to whomever the oil is dedicated to. The Irish blessings oils do not have miraculous power.  It is God who has the power to heal.  Applying the oil while praying are important ways for us to express our faith in God’s power. Moreover, by doing so we place our trust in God.

 The Irish Blessings oils are dedicated to the Holy Spirit, Our Lady and the saints. The oils come through prayer.  They are placed on their designated altars for a period of prayer before being sent out. Also, all the oils have their own individual essential oil fragrance. The oils are of therapeutic grade.
The oil is presented on a prayer cloth enclosed in a card.  The small card goes out with the larger card that has the prayer for healing on the inside.  The cards are personalised for the saint to whom the oil is dedicated to.
