Symbolism in This Rosary
Shell, in tradition, has come to represent our baptism---even the dishes used by priests to pour water over the heads of catechumens are often shaped like scallops. It has come be closely associated with Saint James, the Apostle, and his missionary journey to Iberia. Also, from shells we retrieve pearls, the material of the gates of heaven.
The Immaculate Heart of Mary represents Mary’s three-part love---her virginal love for God the Father, her maternal love for God the Son, and her compassion for the entire world.
The Sacred Heart of Jesus represents Christ’s unconditional love for all humanity, as well as his suffering for us. It at times is depicted with a cross over it or the fire of his burning love.
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!
