Prayer Pendants

Discussion in 'General Discussions' started by James Blake, Jun 11, 2013.

  1. Do you think a piece of cloth stained with blood from a person with stigmata would aid you in prayer?
    I saw pieces of a bloodstained shirt being sold in pendants on ebay!
  2. People like to collect the relics of Saints for pretty much the same reason that people collect memorabilia of actors and rock stars - adoration of celebrities. If it motivates their devotion to God, then great, otherwise it is a distraction, and in some borders on idolatry.
  3. In a simple word that can be understood clearly...........NO!
  4. No. The Holy Spirit provides all the help we need in prayer, interceding for us when we don't know what to pray ourselves.

    "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered." - Romans 8:26
  5. I'm guessing it is a Catholic thing. I know of no other denomination that observes anything similar at all. Even then, I wouldn't think it is very mainstream Catholic, but I'm not an expert.
