The Holy Family Christmas Rosary

28 Dec

Christmas3The Roman Catholic Church celebrates the feast of the Holy Family on the Sunday between Christmas and New Year’s Day.  The Christmas Rosary made in Italy by Ghirelli Rosaries is an appropriate rosary to use on this occasion.

Christmas2The center of the rosary shows the holy family of Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus.

 

Christmas1 The crucifix of the rosary honors the Star of Bethlehem that alerted the Wise Men to the birth of Jesus.

Christmas3 The capped Pater beads add to the beauty of the rosary.

 To learn more, read The Rosary Collector’s Guide by Gloria Brady Hoffner and Helen Hoffner.  This 152 page hardcover reference book  published by Schiffer Books has over 200 color photographs of rosaries, center medals, crosses, and crucifixes ranging from those owned by England’s King Henry VIII to those honoring Pope Francis. The Rosary Collector’s Guide is available on Barnes and Noble.com, Amazon.com, the Catholic Faith Store Online, and other book stores, religious article stores and online dealers.

    I have never seen a Holy Family Christmas rosary. I wonder where it originated?
    Love the Miraculous Medal rosary too.
