Easter, the greatest feast of the Catholic Church, celebrates Christ’s resurrection from the dead. Rosaries honoring this special day often have centers with symbols of the resurrection or a figure of the risen Christ and beads of pastel colors. Many have additional features on the crucifix in remembrance of the events of Holy Week, the days preceding Easter.
