Description

In this rosary, walk with Mary to contemplate the virtues: Faith, Hope, Charity (love), Prudence, Justice, Fortitude, Temperance, and all the sub virtues, one at a time for the whole rosary, or meditate on each virtue traditionally linked to each mystery found below.

As you begin with the clear beads, meditate with Mary on the state of our soul. The clear beads are symbolic of us every day this side of Heaven – full of capitulation when it comes to living the virtues out. We cave the second life gets hard.

As you journey up the rosary, the beads get more opaque – becoming steadfast in practicing virtue – but have flaws in them – those times we still fail even when we’re trying.

But finally at the apex of the rosary we are reminded of the goal; a purity in our love of God, pure white beads that look how Mary’s heart looks like. Ask her to obtain for you the graces necessary to make your heart look like her’s and therefore Jesus’.

And as you journey back down the rosary towards those clear beads, make a resolution and tell it to Mary about how you will practice the virtues in your life today. I suggest, if you are inclined, to pick a different virtue every week or month and meditate with just the one at a time.

Or the traditional mystery to virtue links are:

Joyful mysteries

1. Annunciation (Lk 1,28) – Love of Humility

2. Visitation (Lk: 1,42) – Love of Neighbor

3. Nativity (Lk 2,7) – Spirit of Poverty

4. Presentation (Lk 2,28) – Virtue of Obedience

5. Finding in the Temple (Lk 2, 46) – Virtue of Piety

 

Sorrowful Mysteries

1. Agony in the Garden (Mk 14,35) – True Contrition

2. Scourging at the Pillar (Mk 15,15) – Virtue of Purity

3. Crowning with Thorns (Mk 15,17) – Moral Courage

4. Carrying of the Cross (Jn 19, 17) – Virtue of Patience

5. Crucifixion (Lk 13, 33) – Final Perseverance

 

Luminous Mysteries

1. The Baptism of Jesus – Openness to the Holy Spirit

2. The Miracle at Cana – To Jesus through Mary

3. The Proclamation of the Kingdom of God – Repentance and Trust in God

4. The Transfiguration – Spiritual Courage

5. The Institution of the Eucharist – Eucharistic Adoration

 

Glorious Mysteries

1. Resurrection (Mk 16,6) – Virtue of Faith

2. Ascension (Mk 16,19) – Virtue of Hope

3. Descent of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2,4) – Love of God

4. Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary – Devotion to Our Lady

5. Crowning of the Blessed Virgin Mary – Eternal Happiness

 

These were developed before the Luminous Mysteries were made

——–

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″x3/4″ silver tone Miraculous Medal with angels

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

Hail Mary beads: 10 different stones from agate to jade to jasper. May vary slightly depending on availability of the stones, but will always have a smooth gradient.

Our Father beads: 10mm Malaysian jade with double silver bead caps and clear quartz spacers

Spacers: clear czech glass seed

___________________

With a little bit of practice, you can easily undo/redo the clasp on this rosary bracelet so you can pray it anywhere. The short strand of beads makes it perfect for holding it in the palm of your hand and keeps it from getting caught on anything.

On the bracelet you have the Benedictine Crucifix (protection against demons and temptation in general) and the Miraculous Medal (Mary asked that all wear it).

Stylish, practical, and comfortable, this rosary bracelet has been my go-to rosary for months.

Bracelet measurements – I found the best way to measure my wrist size is to use my phone charger cable because it simulates the thickness of the beads when on the wrist. Wrap the cord around your wrist and make it a comfortable size. Mark (pencil/pen/sharpie) the cord, then measure it flat.

Choose the bracelet size closest to your measurement, rounding down as the beading wire will relax and get larger with constant wear, especially with showering.

7″ – The size in the photos on my wrist. Fits snugly directly against the skin.

7.5″ – what I’m finding to be the average wrist size.

8″ – larger wrist size.

Feel free to ask for a specific size if these don’t work! Extra beads are added between the crucifix and clasp and are adjusted to order.

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.
