This page contains material that could be powerfully evocative for sensitive individuals. Saints as well as all metaphysical phenomena belong to us all, regardless of church, cult or creed. In fact we are all entities to varying degrees.
Rosary: Sacred device and prayer counter
Saint Philomena: The most powerful of all saints is obviously a highly evolved entity who has undoubtedly revisited us many times in various manifestations and may be with us right now.
Catholics should wear Crucifixes — not empty Crosses. Paul preached Christ crucified, and know that we get to the Resurrection through the Cross, that we are called to pick up our own crosses and carry them, offering up our sufferings in imitation of Him.
Scapular is a somewhat large length of cloth suspended both front and back from the shoulders of the wearer, often reaching to the knees. Traditional promised that those wearing it piously would be spared the fires of Hell.
