Sacramentals are ordinary or extraordinary physical, tangible items that have been set apart to bless us in our everyday environment. They are the ultimate gentle reminder of who we are in life...royal.
We all do this already. We choose emojis that expose our state of mind, we personalize our tech, we monogram our handbags, our towels, our stationery, and we even customize our cars. We align ourselves with brands that adequately represent our personal sense of style, and hopefully our values. We all choose products that express our inner ourselves.
Like many, we too have grasped at the spiritual via earthen reminders, like crystals, healing formulas, and ritualistic exercises that redirect to self. Yet, over time, we have found these limited choices to fall short because they still symbolize only earthen mystery, which intrigues for a time, but eventually lose magic. We want more. We want true transcendence...true divine experience. We exist to love and be loved in relation with another, not only self, while not losing self in the process, but rather experiencing our own royally dignified souls flourish.
This is where true sacramentals really emerge for the Royal. While summarizing everything that is truly gorgeous about the earth, they also embody the fullness of the eternal reality, the person's transcendent existence toward a complete and total gift of self to another person through Love.
But you don't have to take our word for it: there are literally billions of people throughout history who prove it. The saints have used sacramentals as their support in forming holy, character-driven, meaningful lives full of connectedness with God and others.
If you gravitate towards meaningful art and items in your life, that prompt your spirit toward intentional living regardless of personal style, then you will love sacramentals. Life should be beautiful and full of grace...use sacramentals to activate a true, holy version of that home and lifestyle you've been longing for - one that is worth living, royally.
