I designed it specifically to have a subtle dusty pink look to satiate a love pink without being *too* girly. The perfect look for honoring Mary as the Rosa mystica, the Mystical Rose.

Description

The dusty pink of this rosary, accented by the tiny flowers in the Mary centerpiece, and the vines of the crucifix, make this the perfect rosary to honor Mary as the Mystical Rose.

What are the graces, the beautiful roses, in your life that you can thank Jesus for? What are the sufferings and problems, the thorns, that you need to bring to Jesus for healing? As you pray with this rosary, bring both to Mary, and she will perfectly intercede for you at the Throne of God, perfecting your prayer.

This title of Mary in part comes from the miracle of the roses from the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe in 1531, and the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary, first used in 1558.

However, did you know there’s actually an apparition where Mary asked for a feast day, July 13, to honor her as the Mystical Rose?

It’s a beautiful series of apparitions from 1947, in which Jacinta and Francesco (the visionaries of the Fatima apparitions) at one time also appear alongside Mary. It’s an incredible confirmation that it really is Mary in all these apparitions, working to bring all souls to Christ.

You can read about the details of the apparitions of the Rosa Mystica here.

Also from that article I found a beautiful explanation of why Mary is called the Mystical Rose that was written so well I was loath to paraphrase it:

“Truly, the rose is the queen of all the flowers, and there is something in the Heavenly arrangement of Its petals and Its coloring, there Is something In Its scent and symmetry, In the modesty of its green leaves, which makes it very special.

It is the flower which captures the heart at nearly every stage of its growth, even when a bud. While It grows, Its petals gradually unfold as a token, as It were, of the blossoming of the lover’s love for his loved one.

Mary, the most beautiful of God’s creation, is indeed “the Incarnate Rose,” especially chosen for God’s garden. She is the “rose of Sharon and the lily of the valleys” [Song 2:1]. There is no rose comparable to her and she has made Paradise ever so much more beautiful.

But if you call her a rose, white is the color of her purity; gold, the tint of her royalty; red, the hue of her suffering. The rose grows out from a stem of thorns and in the heart of this flower, the red of the Cross of her son was forming. Indeed, without thorns a rose is not a rose, and without the thorn of great suffering, Mary could not have become the Mystical Rose of God’s Paradise.”

Everything about this rosary scream mystical rose. The soft, dusty pink rhodonite beads, the semi-transparent Our Father beads that look like clear water, the centerpiece with an image of Mary surrounded by little flowers, and the crucifix with intricate, vine-like detailing. No other name would work.

____

At 16 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.

    I ordered the rosary bracelet for my mom for Mother’s Day, and she absolutely loves it. Monica is a wonderful artist, and you can tell she puts prayer into her work. The packaging was beautiful and made the perfect gift.
