The Oil Dedicated to Blessed Imelda the young Italian saint who yearned for the Eucharist.

The patroness of fervent first communion, Blessed Imelda, came from one of the oldest families in Bologna; her father was Count Igano Lambertini and her mother was Castora Galuzzi. Even as a tiny child she showed unusual piety, taking delight in prayer and slipping off to a quiet corner of the house, which she adorned with flowers and pictures to make it a little oratory.

Description

Oil Dedicated to Blessed Imelda

Prayer:

Blessed Imelda, shining example of youthful devotion and purity, we turn to you with admiration for your profound love for the Eucharist. In your tender years, you longed for the presence of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament, and your pure heart led you to an extraordinary communion with the Divine. As you remain incorrupt, a sign of heavenly favor, we seek your intercession for a childlike faith and a fervent love for the Eucharist. Blessed Imelda, inspire us to approach the Lord’s table with the same innocence and longing that characterized your life. May your unwavering devotion be a source of inspiration for all who strive to deepen their connection with Christ in the Eucharist. Amen.

Scripture:

Romans 15:13

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

 

The Oil Dedicated to Blessed Imelda the young Italian saint who yearned for the Eucharist.

The patroness of fervent first communion, Blessed Imelda, came from one of the oldest families in Bologna; her father was Count Igano Lambertini and her mother was Castora Galuzzi. Even as a tiny child she showed unusual piety, taking delight in prayer and slipping off to a quiet corner of the house, which she adorned with flowers and pictures to make it a little oratory.

Imelda enters the Dominican convent

When she was nine, she was placed, at her own wish, in the Dominican convent in Val di Pietra, to be trained there by the nuns. Her disposition soon endeared her to all, while the zeal with which she entered all the religious life of the house greatly edified the nuns. Her special devotion was to the Eucharistic presence of Our Lord at Mass and in the tabernacle. To receive Our Lord in  became the consuming desire of her heart, but the custom of the place and time had fixed twelve as the earliest age for a first communion. She would sometimes exclaim: “Tell me, can anyone receive Jesus into his heart and not die? ”

When she was eleven years old she was present with the rest of the community at the Ascension Day Mass. All the others had received their communion: only Imelda was left unsatisfied.

Imelda receives Holy Communion

The nuns were preparing to leave the church when some of them were startled to see what appeared to be a Sacred Host hovering in the air above Imelda, as she knelt before the closed tabernacle absorbed in prayer. Quickly they attracted the attention of the priest who hurried forward with a paten on which to receive It. In the face of such a miracle he could not do otherwise than give to Imelda her first communion, which was also her last. For the rapture with which she received her Lord was so great that it broke her heart: she sank unconscious to the ground, and when loving hands upraised her, it was found that she was dead.

Blessed Imelda healing oil/Tradition of oils

The tradition of anointing with sacred oil is very old indeed. It used in sacraments and also as a devotional practice. The sick person applies the oil and blesses themselves.  As they do so, they asked to pray to whomever the oil 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 dedicated to the Holy Spirit, Our Lady and the saints. The oils come through prayer.  They placed on their designated altars for a period of prayer before sent out.  The oils are of therapeutic grade.
The oil 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 personalised for the saint to whom the oil dedicated to.
