Description

Oil dedicated to St Giles

Prayer:

Dear St. Giles,

In the shadows of despair where we, struggling with the weight of depression, find ourselves, we turn to you as our patron seeking solace and healing. We, who bear the heavy burden of sadness, ask for your compassionate intercession. Help us find the strength to face each day, and grant us the courage to seek the support we need.

We, as a community of those grappling with depression, implore your guidance. May your example of resilience inspire us to persevere through the darkest moments. St. Giles, patron for those touched by depression, be our comfort, and lead us towards the light of hope and renewal.

Amen.

Scripture:

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” – Matthew 11:28

 

The Oil dedicated to St Giles is dedicated to St. Giles, Abbot (Patron of Physically Disabled)

St. Giles is said to have been a seventh century Athenian of noble birth. His piety and learning made him so conspicuous and an object of such admiration in his own country that, dreading praise and longing for a hidden life, he left his home and sailed for France. At first he took up his abode in a wilderness near the mouth of the Rhone river, afterward near the river Gard, and, finally, in the diocese of Nimes.

He spend many years in solitude conversing only with God. The fame of his miracles became so great that his reputation spread throughout France.  Giles was highly esteemed by the French king, but he could not be prevailed upon to forsake his solitude. He admitted several disciples, however, to share it with him. There he founded a monastery, and established an excellent discipline therein. In succeeding ages it embraced the rule of St. Benedict. St Giles died probably in the beginning of the eighth century, about the year 724.

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 applies the oil and blesses themselves. 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.  The oils are of therapeutic grade.
The bottles of oils going out are accompanied with a prayer card. In addition, they are personalised for the saint to whom the oil is dedicated to.
