BOOKSTORE

 

The Mission has some available items for sale and are displayed in the small bookstore of the Chapel.

The bookstore is [just] a secondary apostolate of the Mission.  Owing to our limited manpower, supply depends on what is readily available and/or what can be conveniently acquired for inventory.

We do not engage in online business and all orders are processed manually.  Should you be interested in any item featured here, please contact the Mission (via email, mobile or contact form provided on this website) for payment and delivery arrangement.  Please note that prices quoted may change as we depend also on suppliers’ prices.

All prices in Philippine Peso (postage fees are charged separately).  For any foreign currency transactions, we use the exchange rate of the local commercial money changers.

All proceeds from the Bookstore contribute to the support of the Mission.

1.   Pure Beeswax Candles (100% natural beeswax)

BEESWAX CANDLES PIC - 2 STICKS - yellowishBEESWAX CANDLES PIC - 3 STICKS - yellowishBEESWAX CANDLES PIC - 2 STICKS - yellowish

100% pure beeswax candles.  Beeswax is the required material for church use candles.  In the homes of the faithful, blessed [beeswax] candles are ideally lit during [family] prayers, when someone is sick or when there is a typhoon or other calamities.  Bees are a symbol of the Church.  They produce beeswax after they consume honey and use this wax to construct their honeycombs.  Natural beeswax has many beneficial properties such as it purifies the air, among other things; it also burns longer compared to other waxes.  Beeswax is becoming rare and expensive, and it is very laborious to make them into candles (as it is very sticky  and cracks during the solidification process).  It is good to have adequate supply while they are available (limited supply only).  Estimated dimensions – 1 in. (diameter) x 12 in. (height).  Price PhP 450.00.

 

2.   Brown Scapulars of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel (100% brown wool)

Handmade scapulars using 100% brown wool (we import the materials from the U.S.).  Unknown to many, brown [sheep’s] wool is the correct material for making the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel (cotton, silk, and any other material is technically not allowed).  For frequently asked questions on wearing the Brown Scapular, this [Carmelite] website provides the “traditional” answers.  The Blessed Mother, appearing to St. Simon Stock on July 16, 1251, said the following words: “Take, beloved son, this Scapular of thy Order as a badge of my confraternity, and for thee and for all Carmelites, a special sign of grace.  WHOEVER DIES IN THIS GARMENT WILL NOT SUFFER EVERLASTING FIRE.  It is a sign of salvation, a safeguard in dangers, a pledge of peace and of my special protection until the end of the ages.”  As the Novus Ordo / modernist church is not making the correct scapulars anymore, we are propagating this scapular at a very low price (considering material and labor costs).  Estimated dimensions [of the square cloth] – 4.5 cms x 3.5 cms.  Price PhP 50.00.

5.   St. Philomena Oil (for donation only as this is a blessed item)

St. Philomena’s oil is a sacramental of the Church.  Using 100% olive oil, this is made following the Church’s guidelines.  It is blessed by a priest and then burned before a relic of St. Philomena at her shrine in a Chapel where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved.  St. Philomena, an early Church Virgin Martyr, is invoked for many necessities.  Known as “Powerful with God” and called the “Wonder-worker of our age,” Pope Gregory XVI said of her: “Whatever you ask from her, she will obtain for you.”  And in one revelation, the Blessed Mother said: “To Philomena, nothing is refused.”  St. John Marie Vianney had a great devotion toward this Saint and procured many miracles through her intercession.  Used with faith, the blessed oil can be rubbed on for healing of body or soul (it can also be taken internally, being made from pure olive oil).  An accompanying 9-day novena to the Saint proves very efficacious.  Estimated dimensions [of the plastic bottle] – 8 cms x 2.5 cms (diameter); content approx. 15 ml.  Recommended donation is for the cost of materials and sustaining the bookstore apostolate.  Suggested Donation PhP 100.00.

 

6.   St. Joseph Oil (for donation only as this is a blessed item)

St. Joseph’s oil is a sacramental of the Church.  The practice of using the blessed oil in honor of St. Joseph can be traced back to Bro. André (1845-1937, Montreal, Quebec, Canada), a lay brother of the Congregation of Holy Cross.  While invoking St. Joseph, he anointed the sick with the oil he took from a lamp burning near St. Joseph’s statue in the Oratory chapel.  Many miracles were performed because of his faith and this devotion.  His advice to those wanting cures was simple:  “Rub yourself with the medal of St. Joseph and the blessed oil.”  It is recommended that one prays a novena to St. Joseph or at least say a prayer to him when applying.  St. Joseph is Patron of the Sick, and this oil (100% olive oil) has been blessed and burned for 24 hours at the feet of St. Joseph’s statue in the [CMRI] Sisters’ convent chapel (U.S.A.).  Estimated dimensions [of the plastic bottle] – 8 cms x 2.5 cms (diameter); content approx. 15 ml.  Recommended donation is for the cost of materials and sustaining the bookstore apostolate.  Suggested Donation PhP 100.00.
