BLESSED STONES FROM THE GROTTO (CAVE) OF ARCHANGEL MICHAEL, MONTE GARGANO, ITALY
Imported from St. Michael's Grotto, Gargano, Italy. A powerful sacramental of the Church against the devil, temptation, plagues, and sickness. These St. Michael Blessed Stones are taken from the cave that St. Michael consecrated with his presence in the year 493. At that time St. Michael said to the bishop, “I am the archangel Michael, and I have chosen to dwell in that place on earth and to keep it safe.” When they arrived to consecrate the cave, St. Michael said, “It is not necessary that you dedicate this church that I myself have consecrated with my presence.” In 1656, St. Michael assured Bishop Alfonso Puccinelli of Monte' Sant’Angelo - who had invoked the help of Archangel Michael against the plague in Italy at that time, that whoever shall possess such a stone and keep it with devotion will be preserved from sickness. The blessed stones are also known to be effective at expelling the presence of the devil. An information booklet with the story of the blessed cave is included. An exact "COPY" of the Certificate of Authenticity is also included which verifies the stones were taken from St. Michael's cave in Gargano, Italy. If you need an original Certificate, please see below to place your request as these are sent directly from the Grotto Shrine in Italy - and they request an additional $10 offering for each original Certificate. Original stone from Saint Michael Grotto in Italy is in a special brass tone metal and glass reliquary (approximately 3.7cm x 3.7cm x 1.3cm) made especially for the blessed stones. The reverse side of the reliquary reads: "Pietra Del Santuario S Michele" with a cross and "Michael." In English this translates to: "Stone of the Santuary St. Michael." The requested offering helps cover international shipping costs, as well as the cost of the reliquary (the metal receptacle which holds the St. Michael blessed stone), and the enclosed printed information. The St. Michael Blessed Stones in each reliquary may vary in size and number. The blessed stone(s) is / are a GIFT.

St. Michael the Archangel
The Scapular of
St. Michael the Archangel is a Roman Catholic sacramental. St. Michael led the army of angels who cast Satan and the rebellious angels into Hell. St. Michael is invoked for protection against temptation, evil, plague, and sickness. His Holiness, Pope Pius IX gave the St. Michael Scapular his blessing. This scapular was first formally approved and indulgenced by His Holiness, Pope Leo XIII, who sanctioned the Archconfraternity of the Scapular of St. Michael. While this Cconfraternity is no longer in existence, the Faithful may be enrolled in this scapular by any validly ordained Catholic priest.
The St Michael Scapular is different from other scapulars. It consists of two pieces of cloth (one blue and one black) in the shape of a small shield. The cords consist of one blue and one black and are approximately 22 inches in length.
The scapular depicts St. Michael defeating the devil with the words "Quis ut Deus" (translated from Latin - "Who is like God?") on both "shields" - attributed to St. Michael the Archangel when rebuking Satan.
Both "shields" of the scapular have a picture of St. Michael the Archangel killing the dragon and the words ‘Quis ut Deus’. Pope Pius IX gave this scapular his blessing. The very first scapular that was formally approved was the scapular approved by Pope Leo XIII in 1880. Today the scapular of St. Michael consists of two layers of woolen cloth in the shape of a shield, handmade by Sisters.
The black "shield" has the image of
St. Michael from the shrine at Mont Sant’Angelo on Mount Gargano, Italy - and the dark blue "shield" has an image of
