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.
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.
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!
