St. Therese once said, “I will send down a shower of roses from the heavens; I will spend my heaven doing good upon earth”. If she who is the Little Flower promised that, how much more true is it of the most beautiful rose in God’s garden; Mary.
In the early days of our spiritual lives we receive many graces, but to become perfect imitators of Christ, we must become like Him in all things, even death. We must take up our cross and follow Him. That is why the rosary transitions from light pink to deep red.
But when we take on the red sufferings of our Cross, we are never alone. Mary, your guardian angel, all the Saints are there. They provide a sweetness as beautiful as the roses to help us in our suffering, reminding us of the goodness of God even when He seems far away.
This rosary is about seeing the graces showered down upon us, our call and ability to shower roses down on our loved ones, and our ability to unite our sufferings to Jesus on the Cross. And it depends on the day. Draw near near to your mother’s heart and bring your cares to her.
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.
Features of the rosary:
Center piece: 3/4″x1/2″ silver tone Miraculous Medal with roses, double sided

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.
