Where do devotional objects have their origin?
Devotional objects existed as religious devotional objects already in antiquity. At that time, pilgrims to pagan places of worship were offered to buy figures of gods made of ceramic and lead. With the advent of Christianity, religious statues, images of saints and other religious objects eventually replaced the figures of gods. They were intended to serve the devotion and worship of God. Today they are mainly seen in the stores of pilgrimage sites and monasteries. They are a popular souvenir of a pilgrimage: Rosaries, statues of the Virgin Mary, crosses or small medals.
What is the ecclesiastical definition of devotional objects?
According to canon law, devotional objects are defined as sacramentals, that is, "sacred signs by which, in some imitation of the sacraments, effects, especially spiritual ones, are designated and obtained through the intercession of the Church" (Can. 1166). It is further stated that devotional objects are to be treated with reverence and may not be used for other people's use to be treated with reverence and may not be used for other people's use.
What meaning & tradition do devotional objects have in Christianity?
Devotional objects have a long tradition in the Catholic Church and support the believers in their personal relationship with God or in prayer. They can be consecrated by a priest by saying a prayer of blessing and sprinkling the objects with holy water.
