Symbolism in This Rosary
Blue is the color most associated with heaven and the most used color in the Tabernacle of the Temple. The Virgin Mary often wears blue in her apparitions, and it is the color of God’s divine grace. Here it also reminds us of the water of Lourdes.
Roses have been associated with Mary even before the devotion of the rosary, the prayer which represents the garlands of roses she wears in Heaven. They accompany her in several of her apparitions, most famously at La Salette and in the Miracle of the Roses of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Our Lady is often referred to as the Rose Without Thorns.
Our Lady of Lourdes appeared to Saint Bernadette in 1858, along with a spring of water associated with many miracles of healing. Lourdes was the apparition where Mary clarified her Immaculate Conception, and the grotto built at the site has become a major pilgrimage site.
A Three-Way Crucifix includes a pardon crucifix at the center, flanked by a Miraculous Medal and a Saint Benedict Medal.
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!
