Every person on this planet has their own guardian angel. Everyone. Even you.
This angel is there to guide you and encourage you to live a life of virtue. They are there, beholding the face of our Father in Heaven, and right at your side. They intercede on your every prayer. Cry when you cry and rejoice as you rejoice.
Do you talk to your Guardian angel? Do you believe you have one? Since they are fully spirits, you can’t just see your angel, so how do you know he’s there?
The book The Angels: In Catholic Teaching and Tradition by Fr. Pascale Parente is an incredible read and will blow you away with how awesome your angel is and how awesome God is for not only creating them but giving you one, just for you, to help you get to Heaven.
Their title “angel” simply means “messenger” referring to their role in the Bible of bringing the word of God to His people, and as messengers between God and you. They help you build up a strong conscience; pushing you towards charity and virtue.
Saint Michael the Archangel is the Prince of the whole heavenly host. He first appears in the book of Daniel as the protector of all of Israel, and has most likely been Israel’s protector from the very beginning.
As protector of the heavenly hosts, Saint Michael also protects God’s chosen people, and he continues to protect God’s people now; us in the Church founded by Jesus Christ in fulfillment of the old covenant. You can call on him for aid just as you can call on your guardian angel. He will beat back Satan just as he did in the beginning.
The Miraculous Medal is so named because of all the miracles attributed to wearing or having one on your person. It comes from a vision of Mary to St. Catherine Labouré. Around the outside is the Latin inscription “Regina sine labe originali conception O.P.N” (O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us). This medal has a rich history that is worth looking up.
We use the color white to represent purity and hope. We don’t often like to admit it, but the reality is, we are all sinners. Every saint went to Confession all the time – usually weekly or every other week – because they all recognized that they were incapable of of being free from sin in this life. They recognized that they needed to go to Jesus and ask him to forgive them. To wash them clean from their sin and infuse them with grace once more so they could continue to love others fully. Let the white of these beads remind you of the purity of Mary and Jesus and remind you to get to Confession.
If you go to Confession regularly and pray to your Guardian Angel for help, you will surely make it to Heaven. Will you dare to believe?
At 15.5 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 and will last a lifetime of use. While I do strength test every rosary, it is still a handmade piece and prone to human error. So, should it break, simply gather all the beads you can find and contact me and I’ll gladly repair it for you for free sans shipping and the replacement of major beads (if you loose the spacers, don’t even worry about it).
This rosary really is the perfect gift for a dear friend or yourself and is especially good for Confirmations and First Communions.
The beads are stone and have a weight to them, which I always find helps me really focus when I’m praying. They also take on the ambient temperature of the room- so in winter I usually find my rosary to be a little chilly- just another reminder that you’re praying! But they also quickly warm up from your body heat.
The beading wire stretches slightly as it is used (this is normal – it wears in like good leather boots) so you will still be able to slide the beads along as you pray.
