I love painting Jesus in the Eucharist. It gives me a physical reminder that He is present in every church and monstrance and all I have to do is walk in.
Since the beginning of the Church, images have been used to represent the metaphysical reality around us and to point us back to the divine God through the stories in the Bible and the Saints.
We paint the saints so we can look at them and remind us that they were a real person who walked this earth. So when we pray to them and ask them for help, it’s easier because we’re looking at them.
So I paint monstrances to remind us of the same thing. It’s not to replace going to the chapel, but to remind you to go. And in the case of this sticker, specifically to remind you of the holy name of Jesus.
The initials “IHS” are the first three letters in the Greek spelling of Jesus. So they represent the name of God and are often found imprinted into the host or carved into the decorations on an altar.
Often at Mass you’ll see the priest and some laity bowing their heads every time the name of Jesus is said as a sign of respect. It used to be that that would happen in every day conversations as well.
So be reminded of the name of Christ and His presence in the Eucharist with this simple sticker.
I love it! Its the perfect size for my laptop

Incredible! I bought a few of these for my waterbottle and my kids’ waterbottles and my kids LOVE them! They are so excited to see ‘adoration’ on their bottles! These are so perfect 🙂
This cutie little monstrance sticker was EXACTLY what I was looking for. My boyfriend’s sister is getting confirmed with St. Clare and this monstrance is just perfect!
I love this little sticker! It now has a special place on my journal. Thank you, Monica!
I am an adorer at my sons’ former Catholic high school and was blessed to receive this special sticker as a gift from the Adoration shift coordinator. The artwork is simple and meaningful. I look forward to using it on a notebook for a prayer journal.
