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.

Ora et labora


 A dear friend recently asked me to create a rosary for her husband. Wanting it to be just right, and one which would last for a long time, she wrangled with the decisions -- what beads? what center? which crucifix is just right? I think she did a great job picking out the parts and it turned out to be a truly beautiful, yet very masculine rosary.

The Aves are 6mm lapis lazuli denim blue beads, and the Paters are 8 mm pewter beads with a textured surface. The center is a pewter St. Benedict medal and the crucifix is a very handsome pewter crucifix.
