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.

Mystical Rose

THERE is no rose of such virtue 
As is the rose that bear Jesu: 

For in this rose containéd was 
Heaven and earth in little space: 
Res Miranda.

By that rose we may well see 
There be one God in Persons Three: 
Pares forma.

The angels sang, the shepherds too: 
Gloria in Excelsis Deo: 

Leave we all this worldly mirth 
And follow we this joyful birth: 

By an unknown Medieval Author

This rosary is beautiful, with white pearls and clear crystals it is pure and perfect as Our Blessed Mother.
