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 CMRI-Asia apostolate. 

Thank you very much and God bless you.

3.  Brown Scapulars – 100% brown wool (the correct material for the Brown Scapular)
Description:  Handmade scapulars using 100% brown wool.  Unknown to many, brown wool is the correct material for making the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.  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).  The Blessed Virgin appeared to St. Simon Stock o
n July 16, 1251 and said the following words: “Take, beloved son, this Scapular of thy Order as a badge of my confraternity, and for thee and all Carmelites a special sign of grace; WHOEVER DIES IN THIS GARMENT WILL NOT SUFFER EVERLASTING FIRE. It is the sign of salvation, a safeguard in dangers, a pledge of peace and of the covenant.”  Estimated dimensions [of the square cloth] – 4.5 cms x 3.5 cms.  Price PhP 65.00.

     

 

4.  St. Philomena Oil (for donation only as this is a blessed item)
Description:  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.

   

 

5.  St. Joseph Oil (for donation only as this is a blessed item)
Description:  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.

t Algiers, in Africa, blessed Serapion, of the Order of Our Blessed Lady of Ransom.  For the redemption of the faithful in captivity and the preaching of the Christian faith, he was the first of his Order to deserve the palm of martyrdom by being crucified and cut to pieces.”  The Moors inflicted an atrocious death on St. Serapion.  They nailed him on an X-shaped cross, like Saint Andrew’s cross, and they savagely dismembered him.  One account says that he was disemboweled, and that his neck was partly severed, leaving his head to dangle.  He was martyred while preaching the Gospel to Muslims.  Some prayers recited by the priest in blessing the oil of St. Serapion: “O Almighty, everlasting God, the healer and solace of all mankind, may it please Thee to sanctify  this creature oil, which we bless  in Thy Name and in the name of the illustrious and valiant athlete of Christ, Serapion.  Let all who are laid low with sores, fractures, or any other painful disease, through the anointing with this holy oil and the help and intercession of the Saint who had to endure such intense and excruciating torment at his martyrdom, experience alleviation in this life, and come to possess everlasting health. Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.”  And,O God of mercy and of clemency, through the glorious merits of the bitter suffering of Thy Martyr, Serapion, one of the Machabees of the New Covenant, do Thou bless  this oil, sanctifying it by the power of Thy benediction.  And grant that all who are afflicted with any kind of pain, if they are devoutly anointed with this oil in honor of Thy Martyr, may experience by Thy help comfort in body and receive by Thy grace healing in spirit, so that, restored finally to good health, they may render Thee thanksgiving in Thy Church.  Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.”  Estimated dimensions [of the plastic bottle] – 9 cms x 2.25 cms (median diameter); content approx. 15 ml.  Pure olive oil.  Recommended donation is for the cost of materials and sustaining the bookstore apostolate.  Suggested Donation PhP 100.00.
