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.

Papal Coat of Arms




An antique
Pope Paul VI Coat of Arms rosary center that I acquired was the inspiration for the colors in this auto rosary. It is a lovely sterling silver center set off by the silver Papal Crucifix. I chose antique black glass Aves and Pater beads, set apart by round sterling silver beads, crystal Czech glass seed beads and tiny opaque black Japanese seed beads.

The ten Aves and one Pater of this decade rosary are strung on a Soft Flex wire with a magnetic clasp in the middle so that you can unclasp it, place it around the support of your rear view mirror, and then clasp it again. It's a good length -- not too long to hang in the way. You can also easily unclasp it to take with you.

Crystal and Green Auto Rosary



This crystal and green auto rosary was created for a darling Notre Dame cheerleader (pictured below) -- the son of a dear friend and a proud St. Charles alumnus.

This rosary has intensely clear, round, glass Aves and one Pater, set apart by luminous green, Czech glass beads and tiny, iridescent, clear, Japanese seed beads. The center is a Scapular medal depicting the Sacred Heart of Jesus on one side and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel on the other. The crucifix is a Papal Crucifix.

Second from the right in the back -- he's just darling.

Rosary Repair

A few weeks ago I put a notice in my parish bulletin offering free rosary repair. I've had more than a few parishioners take me up on my offer and all have had their rosaries repaired and back in working order. I'm happy to do it, just to know someone is able to pray their rosary again. Several people said they tried to find someone to fix it, but had no luck.

I'm sending out the same offer here. If you have a rosary with broken links or chain, I will repair it for free -- just the cost of shipping. If you are missing beads, I can try to find a replacement and will fix it at cost. Just send me an e-mail.

The white is a symbol of purity and the blue symbolizes fidelity, and is a color especially used for Mary. The heart-shaped pewter center depicts the Blessed Virgin on one side and Our Lord Jesus Christ on the other. It has a pewter Papal Crucifix.
