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.

The Stations of the Cross chaplet consists of 15 groups of 3 beads each, between which are medals representing the stations of the cross. There are 6 beads between the crucifix and center.

This chaplet is made of 6mm matte amethyst beads and nickel medals representing the stations. The Ecce Homo center is nickel, and the crucifix is pewter.

The pins are made with 20 gauge non-tarnishing silver wire. Each pin is hand turned with care.

The rosary comes in a gift box.


A Suggested Way of Saying the Way of the Cross Rosary
On the Crucifix say the Apostle's Creed.

On each of the following six beads:
1. An Act of Contrition.

2. Prayer to Jesus Christ Crucified:
Behold, O kind and most sweet Jesus, I cast myself on my knees in Your sight and with the most fervent desire of my soul I pray and beg You to impress upon my heart lively sentiments of faith, hope and charity, with true repentance for my sins, and a firm desire of amendment, while with deep affection and grief of soul I ponder within myself and mentally contemplate Your five most precious wounds: having before my eyes that which David spoke in prophecy: "They have pierced My hands and My feet; they have numbered all My bones."

3. Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them; an dmay all the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen

4. Our Father
5. Hail Mary
6. Glory be

For the intentions of the Holy Father: at each medal/station say:
We adore You, O Christ, and we bless You, because by Your Holy Cross You have redeemed the world.
Followed by:
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.
