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.
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.
