Who is your patron saint? Did you select a saint’s name on your Confirmation Day? Many rosaries have center medals that honor one special saint. The Rosary of the Saints shown above has beads which honor many saints.

The Rosary of the Saints begins with an icon cross, one with many pictures.

While praying this rosary, one can reflect upon the work of each saint.

The Catholic Church refers to the practice of honoring saints as “Absolute Dulia”. The Council of Trent stated in 1564, “Through images we honor the saints which they represent”. The Council further stated that “it is good and profitable to appeal to them (saints) for help”.

The center medal of this rosary shows the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It is believed that in 1675, Jesus appeared to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque. He told her, ” I will bless every place where a picture of My Heart shall be exposed and honored”. In memory of this promise, many Catholics display a picture of the Sacred Heart in their homes, carry a picture in their wallets, and reflect upon the image while saying the rosary.

The Rosary of the Saints is a traditional Dominican rosary with five decades and a pendant.

      The Rosary of the Saints is one of the most beautiful because it contains many examples of Catholic art. Each bead has a full color image of a saint.

    I have never seen a rosary with saints on it. That is very unusual.
