AUTHENTIC OLIVE WOOD ROSARY WITH A CROSS WITH CUT-OUT OF CHRIST – Hand carved by craftsmen in the Holyland, using traditional techniques. Made from authentic, highest quality, 8 mm olive wood beads each one unique in its beauty due to the difference in the shading and lines on it. The beads are carefully assembled and knotted on sturdy dark brown cord.
A PERFECT COMPANION FOR PRAYER & MEDITATION - This is a traditional rosary, usually used by Catholics and is made of five decades, sets of 10 beads known as Hail Mary’s, 6 “Our Father” beads and another 3 Hail Mary’s, making 59 beads in total.
INCLUDES AN OLIVE WOOD CROSS WITH CHRIST CUT-OUT /CORPUS JESUS SILHOUETTE–This cross has a silky smooth feel and it will develop its own natural patina as it is held and handled over time. The cross measures approximately 2” X 1.5" x .1" / 5 cm x 4 cm x 0.25 cm. No two rosaries will ever look the same due to the variations in the grain of the wood.
A CHERISHED GIFT - This rosary is used primarily by Roman Catholics to assist them when reciting their prayers. The rosary is used to count the prayers. You can download the prayers here: http://www.newadvent.org/images/rosary.pdf. In these uncertain times, have these available to give to your loved ones in their time of need. It has been said that sometimes it is enough simply to hold the rosary and cross silently – this is itself prayer. If you or someone you know is ill simply holding the rosary may be the best way to pray, reflect or meditate.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY - These crosses are made only from the trimmings of ancient olive trees growing in the Bethlehem region, the site of the nativity of Jesus (Matt 2, Luke 2).
