Rosaries of Easter

14 Apr

EasterPalm

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.

The rosary shown above has a center with the Risen Christ and beads in the colors of Easter.

The lily is the traditional flower of Easter because according to legend, lilies could seen growing in the Garden of Gethsemane after Christ’s suffering on Good Friday. Lilies are reminders of hope and life after trials.

Each bead of the rosary shown below is formed in the shape of a lily.  The center medal shows the Risen Christ.

The rosary shown below has a color picture of the Risen Christ in the center medal.

Easter is a time to celebrate the beauty of the rosary.
