|The perfect gift for the ecclesiastical stitcher|
The Guild prayer, from the 1957 edition of the Enchiridion Indulgentiarum (the Raccolta), is Jesu, via, veritas et vita, miserere nobis (Jesus, the way, the truth, and the life, have mercy on us).
The Raccolta says of this prayer, that "The faithful who devote themselves without compensation to the making and repairing of church ornaments and liturgical vestments, either privately or in institutes founded for this purpose, as often as they devoutly recite the above invocation, while engaged in this work, that they may thus sanctify their labour still more, may gain an indulgence of 300 days." This specific indulgence was abolished in the reform of indulgences of 1967and replaced with a partial indulgence.
No vestment mending session would be complete without a cup of something: and what better vessel for it than this mug with its helpful reminder of the available indulgence on it? Our supply is limited so buy now before they're all gone!
