In the tradition of 'Pilgrimage' this rosary honors the Pilgrimage to Medjugorje. A small village in Hercegovina, Medjugorje is where the Blessed Virgin Mary has been appearing since 1981 and giving messages to the whole world. We are all pilgrims as we travel on our faith filled road to be with our Blessed Mother and her Beloved Son. This small but unique rosary is a wonderful reminder of how powerful praying the rosary is.
The Blessed Mother said in a message to the whole world on August 25th, 1989:
Dear children, today I call you to prayer. By means of prayer, little children, you will find joy and peace. Through prayer you will be richer in the mercy of God. Therefore, little children, let prayer illuminate your entire life. Especially I call you to pray that those who are far from God may be converted. Then our own hearts will be richer because God will reign in the hearts of all. And so, little children, pray, pray, pray! Let prayer reign throughout the whole world.
This delicate heirloom rosary is handmade. The crucifix and rosary center are hand cast in solid bronze from antique and vintage pieces. The crucifix is an antiqued etched vintage piece. The rosary center has an 'IHS' and is from 18th century Europe. You can engrave a special letter on the back of the center. Attached to the center is a medal of Our Lady of Medjugorje with Krizevac on the back. The Ave beads are beautiful champagne colored Czech glass beads. The Paters are hand cast bronze roses which represent a crown of roses, a spiritual bouquet given to our Blessed Mother.
