I have a great devotion to the parable of the seeds and sower: how to Word of God will land on the soil of our hearts and will take root, or be carried off, or bear fruit abundantly. In this rosary, walk with Mary as you til the soil of your heart into the good soil that will receive the Word of God and bear fruit 30, 60, and a hundred fold.
And you begin with the white beads, reflect on that purity of Mary that allows her to receive all that God gives her. Ask Mary to explain it to you, and to make your heart like hers.
As you transition to the greens, meditate on the ways you have failed to put God first, those thorns and weeds or parched soil that keep you from Him, and ask Mary to help you become a fruitful garden like the vibrant greens of the middle of the rosary.
As you transition back to the white, resolve to do better and ask Mary to obtain for you those graces necessary to become an image of her, and therefore an image of her Son.
At 16 inches long, with 8mm beads, these rosaries are about the same size as a standard rosary. The rosary is assembled with 49-strand steel beading wire, crimping beads, and wire protectors, so it is super strong. While I do strength test every rosary, it is still a handmade piece and prone to human error. So, should it break, simply gather all the beads you can find and contact me and I’ll gladly repair it for you for free sans shipping and the replacement of major beads (if you loose the spacers, don’t even worry about it).
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.
The beading wire stretches slightly as it is used (this is normal – it wears in like good leather boots) so you will still be able to slide the beads along as you pray.
I’m so excited to release this rosary! All the pieces came together so well.
