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.

Seven Sorrows Colored Medals

.

I recently received a request to make a Seven Sorrows of Mary Chaplet. This particular request came with a request to use medals with color pictures of the seven sorrows. A Canadian company carries them, and they are very pretty. This chaplet was created with 8 mm sapphire blue faceted glass beads linked with the colored medals.

The Seven Sorrows of Mary, also known as the Seven Dolors, are contemplated through the seven sets of seven Aves and seven Paters. This devotion to the Blessed Mother originates in the thirteenth century. On the Seven Sorrows chaplet, we meditate upon the Seven Sorrows the Virgin Mother endured by witnessing the life and death of her Son, Our Lord Jesus.
