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.

O My Jesus

The prayer that follows the Glory Be on the rosary, O My Jesus, is one of my favorite prayers. I often find myself praying it at different times of the day, even when I am not praying the rosary.
O My Jesus. Forgive us our sins. Save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of Thy mercy.
These words were given to us by Our Blessed Mother at Fatima, and this center and crucifix cause me to think of them -- our merciful Lord carrying His cross, suffering on the cross for our sins. Through His mercy, we are saved.



The Aves on this rosary are 6 mm howlite beads, the Paters are 8 mm onyx, with antique brass caps. The beads are set apart with gold glass and antique brass seed beads.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us

I am often the recipient of rosaries that have no home. I usually donate them to our parish church -- there is a receptacle for rosaries for those who don't have one, and I'm happy to pass them on. Sometimes, however, when a rosary has beautiful parts, or is not complete in one way or another, I re-purpose the parts as much as I can. I received this center and crucifix, and seeing how pretty they were, I decided to use them for a glass rosary. The Ave beads are 7 mm apricot-colored glass and the Paters are 7 mm crystal glass with silver bead caps. The center is silver tone with the image of Our Lady of Fatima.
