Due to unemployment, and thus financial hardship, I have changed my policy of not adding labor cost to my rosaries. I hope that you can understand why this is necessary and will continue to support my apostolate. At this time I need to support my family with my skills and resources. I have not added much to the cost of each item -- not as much as most vendors would, doubling or tripling their cost -- but just enough to contribute a small amount to my family's income.

This rosary is a silver tone rosary with blood red stone-style glass beads, a Pewter St. Michael Center and Pewter Papal Crucifix. These stones are gorgeous -- no picture can do them justice, and they are very heavy, making this a very substantial rosary to hold. What better way to pray the Sorrowful Mysteries than with these blood red beads.
This rosary is for my nephew for his Confirmation. He has chosen St. Michael as his patron saint.

These Sacrifice Beads are available custom made in almost any color combination. They usually have a St. Therese medal, but any medal can be used. $3.50
What are Sacrifice Beads?
As a child, St. Therese of the Little Flower kept Sacrifice Beads. This is a string a beads she used to help count the “presents” she offered to God every day. Each time she made a sacrifice, such as letting someone else have his or her way, or doing something that was difficult, she offered the sacrifice to God and reached into her pocket to pull a bead to Jesus on the Crucifix. Like St. Therese, these sacrifice beads in our pocket especially help children to become more aware of offering gifts to God each day.
Sacrifice Beads are a string of ten beads, which can be pulled toward the Crucifix and will remain there. They are used to count the acts of love for God that a person makes in a day and they help a person to grow in perfection by increasing the acts of love they do each day. The Sacrifice Beads have a fixed Our Father bead on the end so they also can be used as a rosary.
