My Rosary beads with beautiful color Illustrations of the 15 Mysteries. Our rosary beads place us and leave us at the feet of Mary, crowned with an everlasting diadem. First printed in 1920 with Imprimatur.
The Rosary is one of the most beautiful, most profitable, and most popular of all devotions. It was revealed to St. Dominic, by our Blessed Lady herself, about the beginning of the thirteenth century, and has continued ever since to be so general a favorite with all classes of the faithful, that to neglect it may be attributed, in most cases, to a lack of piety; whilst to despise it is a sure indication of an un-Catholic spirit.
“Until now thou hast spent thy labours on a barren soil, not yet watered with the dew of Divine Grace. When God willed to renew the face of the earth, He began by sending down the fertilising rain of the angelic salutation. Therefore preach my Psalter . . . and thou wilt obtain an abundant harvest.” — Our Lady to St. Dominic.
“Thy word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path” (Ps. cxviii. 105). In the Devotion of the Rosary the Church holds out this lamp to her children, and, by means of its light, she directs their feet into the ways of God, leading them to His knowledge and His love.
Meditation produces good motions in the will or affinitive part of the soul: such as the love of God and of our neighbor, the desire of heaven, zeal for souls, imitation of the life of Our Lord, &c. Apply all this to a mystery of the Rosary. Virgo Sacrata also makes in-house rosary beads that will encourage and inspire you in your journey with our Lady and our Lord.
