Bottle Holder for Oil or Holy Water
Remarkable engraving work with this bottle holder. Made in Quebec in maple wood, it can contain a small bottle of Saint Joseph’s oil or Holy Water of 60 ml or 2 oz.
Two models are available :
– Saint Joseph cap and engraving Brother André,
– Brother André cap and engraving Oratory.
Brother André often advised those who came to him to rub themselves with some vegetable oil which had been burning in front of the statue of Saint Joseph.
Even today, oil used in this manner remains a link with our tradition. It is an expression of faith.
It is not the oil itself which cures, but the Lord who hears the prayer of the faithful.
