Czech Devotions Green Miracle Rosary
Czech Devotions, exclusive 5-decade rosaries handmade by Grant and Celeste in limited runs of seven, showcase the elegance and lavish color of Czech glass from the region of Jablonec nad Nissou, the heart of Czech glassmaking. They feature our signature stainless steel chain and couplings, Italian-made centers and crucifixes, and our lifetime warranty.
This rosary includes fire-polished barrel faceted Czech glass beads in green and gold, with an Italian-made flower-ringed Miraculous Medal center and an Italian-made sunburst crucifix.
Symbolism in This Rosary
Green evokes vegetation, spring, and renewal. It is the color of life and immortality, and is used in the Bible often. The many Hebrew words for green separate out the life cycle of plants, with different words for the green of new growth, summer growth, and the green of mature plants and trees. It is, of course, the color of vestments for Ordinary Time.
Gold is mentioned 361 times (or is it 417?) in the Bible and in 42 of its books. It was the currency of the wealthy, and was prominent in the Tabernacle and in the Temple of Solomon.
The Miraculous Medal is based on an apparition of Our Lady of Grace to Sister Catherine Laboure. It contains an image of Mary with rays of graces extending from her hands with the words “O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.” On the back is a ring of twelve stars, the letter M surmounted by a cross, and two hearts---the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
The Sunburst crucifix represents both Christ’s sacrifice and his glory.
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!
