My Favorite Heirloom Catholic Wax Seal Stamp
Of all the heirloom Catholic wax seal stamps that we offer here at Pietà Paperie, my absolute favorite this season is the St. Benedict Medal Heirloom Catholic Wax Seal Stamp. The St. Benedict Medal is seriously my thing these days!
Did you know that the Saint Benedict Medal isn't just another Catholic symbol? It actually has the power to ward off demons when blessed! It also has special prayers "baked" into it, so to speak. On the side featuring St. Benedict, the following prayers are engraved:
Eius in obitu nostro praesentia muniamur!
("May we be strengthened by his presence in the hour of our death")
And on the side with all the letters engraved on it, it says: "C S S M L - N D S M D", which stands for:
English: "May the holy cross be my light! May the dragon never be my overlord!"
English: "The Cross of [our] Holy Father Benedict"
With Catholic symbolism that transcends both wax and paper, the St. Benedict Medal certainly leaves an impression!
It's also a beautiful conversation starter. We HIGHLY recommend having your St. Benedict Medal Heirloom Catholic Wax Seal Stamp blessed so that it protects you from demons.
When it comes to our stamps, the runner up is the Miraculous Medal Heirloom Catholic Wax Seal Stamp! The fact that you can gift BOTH the front and back of the Miraculous Medal as a set is such a delight. Designed by none other than Our Lady, herself. I mean, come on! Pair the Miraculous Medal wax seal stamps with one of our stunning Miraculous Medal Catholic Stationery Sets: Miraculous Medal Personalized Catholic Stationery Set or our Miraculous Medal Letterpress Folded Card Catholic Stationery Set.
My Favorite Stationery Set with a Matching Wax Seal Stamp
I don’t know about you, but I just love wax seal stamps! They’re just so addicting! I mean, why not make every letter you send a cherished keepsake? Our new Auspice Maria Heirloom Catholic Wax Seal Stamp paired with our In Corde Mariae Auspice Maria Personalized Catholic Stationery Set is definitely my favorite stationery pair this year.
For those who aren’t familiar with it, Auspice Maria means “Under the Protection of Mary!" Every time you pen a letter, you can prayerfully seal it asking Our Lady for her intercession that your heartfelt message would be under her protection. The latin phrase "In corde Mariae" translates to "In the heart of Mary". What's a more beautiful way to sign a letter? (For all the letterpress lovers out there, check out our Auspice Maria Folded Letterpress Catholic Stationery Set.)
Catholic Stationery: The Gift that Keeps on Giving
One of my favorite things about stationery is that whether you get a set for yourself or a loved one, it’s going to bless more than one person because it’s a vehicle for sharing the words of the heart. It naturally takes more intentionality than modern forms of communication like texting, email, and the like. Even if you get a personalized set for yourself, the letters and the sentiments that you pen onto the paper are undoubtedly going to bless another. Catholic stationery is truly the gift that keeps on giving!
Consider these Catholic Christmas Gift vehicles for Spiritual Works of Mercy and invitations to the Sacraments themselves! (Psst... check out our “You, me, Mass, & tea/coffee?” Personalized Catholic Stationery Sets!
That’s all for now! May your Advent blessed and your Christmas be joyous! May you bless evangelize and encourage, one beautifully crafted note at a time, and may many, many of your loved ones come back to the Church this new liturgical year!
Peace & blessings to you!
