Symbolism in This Rosary
Black, often associated in the Bible with sin and death, is an immediate reminder of Christ’s sacrifice for us---his death in atonement for our sins. Though black has a negative connotation in much of the Old Testament with few exceptions, Christ’s death, through grace, is our clean slate, and a touchstone for our prayers, much like the darkness at the beginning of creation---the start of something new and wonderful.
Brown reminds us of the earth, of the dust from which we are formed, of the sands of time, and of the trunks and branches of trees. There is a strength to it; it serves as a point of origin and foundation, and sustains and supports us into the future.
Saint Michael the Archangel is the defender of both Heaven and Earth, as well as the patron saint of police officers, the military, and grocers.
A Botonee crucifix, or “button” crucifix has three knobs or buttons at the ends, representing the three Persons of the Holy Trinity.
Our goal is to provide you a rosary, not just sell you a rosary. We use only stainless steel eyepins, linkages, and jump rings for both their strength and durability. If there is any defect in the workmanship of a rosary you purchase from us, please let us know, and we will make it right, free of charge, including shipping, within the first year of purchase. Also, for as long as we make rosaries (a lifetime, we hope!), if a rosary we made for you ever has a broken linkage, eyepin, or jump ring, we will be happy to repair it, with cost limited to shipping. Whatever we can do to keep you praying!
