  • Symbolism in This Roary

    Garnet is quite possibly the first stone in Aaron’s breastplate, as the Hebrew word used means “red stone” and garnet was the most widely used red gem in the area at the time. It is valued throughout history, and traditionally represents Christ’s sacrifice.

     

    Carnelian, also known as sardius, is the sixth foundation stone of Revelation’s New Jerusalem, and is also used in Revelation to describe the Lord. It has a long history of use by royalty, with a strand of carnelian beads from 3100 BC discovered in Egypt.  

     

    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 Saint Benedict crucifix has a long history and a complex symbolism. The Order of Saint Benedict does the best job clearly explaining the details.

     

  • Warranty

    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!
