Description

Blessed Gandolph healing oil

The Blessed Gandolph healing oil is dedicated to the 12th century Italian Franciscan.

He joined the Franciscans during the lifetime of Francis of Assisi, and his observance of the rule was so perfect that he advanced rapidly in holiness of life and the practice of virtue. His food was coarse and his dress was rough and humble. He spent long night vigils in prayer, and he severely disciplined his body. His quest for solitude took him from Palermo to a hermitage near the small town of Polizzi Generosa. Even during his lifetime, his conspicuous sanctity, his inspired eloquence, and his reputation for miracles won him the enthusiastic veneration of the people of the town and surrounding countryside. He had great devotion to the Passion, as well as to the Blessed Mother, and as he lay dying, he embraced the crucifix.

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.
