Description

The spiritual life is a battle. So put on the armor of God and use His special weapon: the rosary. It is a weapon most suited to our times as St. Padre Pio said.

We fly to our mother because we know we cannot do this alone: we cannot make it to Heaven without God.  In His goodness, God gave us the rosary – this prayer that meditates on the life of Jesus. He knew that at times all prayer would fail us, the spiritual life would be dry, and He would seem distant to us.

But Mary is not God. She is human, just like us. She longs to bring us closer to her Son, especially when times are tough.

With the dark brown beads and St. Benedict medal center piece, this rosary becomes a reflection of the habit of a religious brother or sister, they who know the battle and have dedicated their lives to loving and serving God. 

Let them, and all the Saints, be inspiration to you, to never give up the fight. 

As St. Paul says, “Therefore take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the equipment of the gospel of peace; besides all these, taking the shield of faith, with which you can quench all the flaming darts of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.” (Ephesians 6:13-17)

The center piece is the St. Benedict medal – a powerful sacramental of protection against demons and temptation, St. Benedict is also the patron of a happy death. Among other awesome symbolism, on the reverse it has the initials of the Latin exorcism inscribed around the outside – “Begone Satan! Never tempt me with your vanities! What you offer me is evil. Drink the poison yourself”. If you’ve never looked up the Benedict Medal, I highly suggest you do!

______

At 17 inches long, with 8mm beads, this rosary is roughly the same size as your standard rosary. The rosary is assembled with 49-strand steel beading wire, crimping beads, and wire protectors, so it is super strong.

Because this rosary is made with stone beads, it has a weight to it and retains ambient cooler room temperate, which is really awesome to feel when you’re praying; it always made me focus more on what I was saying. And then as you pray the stones warm up from your body heat.

Please remember that all things can break with excessive use. Under normal, conscientious use, this rosary will last a very long time, but, for instance, if you keep this rosary in a tight pocket every day, all day and get it crushed under you or against something, the small glass spacers can break and the steel wire will be under strain and can stretch and even break.

These repairs can be made, and I would be delighted to do so, but as time goes on, I might not have extra beads or I might be gone. So do be gentle and take good care of your rosary.

BRACELET SIZING

Lobster clasp and chain make the new bracelets far more adjustable than the old designs. Two sizes are available: Small and Medium/Large. The only difference is the length of the chain. Small goes from 7″ to 7.5″, Med/Large goes from 7″ to about 8.5″.

If the size is too big, you can easily use two pliers and remove any excess chain and make it exactly customized to your wrist.

    This rosary is beautiful, the craftsmanship is amazing, and the card explaining its significance a testament to the needs for the rosary to be prayed in our times. To put on the battle armor of God to face and defeat the armies of hell. Monica has truly been gifted by God with an art! Wonderful customer service as well.

For every order, 10% of all proceeds will go to organizations who provide resources to at risk women before and after birth.

The first is The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. They area a local organization to me,  providing resources and care for free to women in crisis pregnancies, from ultrasounds to parenting classes to post abortion healing.

The second is the Sisters of Life, a newer religious community founded in 1991 in New York to promote the dignity of every human life. They have houses for women to come live with them during and after their pregnancy as they get back on their feet, as well as counseling for post abortion healing, and other missions.
