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.
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.
Our Lady of Fatima appeared to three children every month between May and October of 1917. In addition to prophecies and the Miracle of the Sun at her last appearance, she request the children and others pray the rosary every day, adding the prayer “Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those who are in most need of thy mercy.” at the end of each decade.
The Roman catacombs are the burial place for the early Christian community and martyrs of Rome. Many of the burial chambers include wall art depicting scene from the Bible or the lives of the early saints. Even after Christianity became the state religion and Christians were able to be buried in cemeteries, the catacombs were a place of memorial and veneration throughout the late Roman Empire.
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!
