Description

Purple is the color of penance, preparation, and sacrifice. It’s the color of Advent and Lent, the color of sin, the color of waiting.

But unlike black, which has the same connotations, it is a color. Happy, bright, vibrant.

Hopeful.

Our Lady is the Mother of Hope, she is our sure refuge from the sufferings of life and our guide away from sin and towards Christ her son.

As you journey around the rosary, the colors change from the white purity of holiness, through a period of penance reflecting on how we have turned from God, to deep black and a true sorrow for sin, back out through preparation and sacrifice, ending with a renewal and return to holiness.

Each of us sin, each of us choose to put other things before God. We all need to return to the sacraments, return to Christ in ever deepening ways. And through that journey we have Our Mother of Hope, guiding us and reminding us of the greatest hope – union with God forever in Heaven.

“Mother of Hope” is a new title added to the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary by Pope Francis in 2020 in response to those dark and hopeless times. He also added Mother of Mercy and Solace of Migrants at the same time.

——–

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 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.

 

Features of the rosary:

Center piece: 3/4″x3/4″ silver tone Miraculous Medal with angels

Crucifix: 2″x1-1/4″ silver tone crucifix with vines

Hail Mary beads: 6 different stones from agate to amethyst. May vary slightly depending on availability of the stones, but will always have a smooth gradient.

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.

Your Impact

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.
