Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

I didn't forget...a winner

The Aves on this chaplet are 6mm round rhodondite. If you believe in the power of stones (I don't but I do find the meaning some people find in stones to be interesting) you would know that the rhodondite is used to heal heartache and loss, help ease stress and for reflection. Our Blessed Mother would tell us that following her Holy Son is what heals heartache and loss and eases stress, and I would certainly agree. Praying this chaplet is a beautiful way to follow Jesus, by reflecting on the Seven Sorrows of Mary as they all pertain to the life of Christ Jesus.

The Paters are 8mm round light rose Swarovski crystals, capped with antique bronze caps. The beads are wire-wrapped in 22 gauge vintage bronze wire. The center is the Sorrowful heart of Mary and the medal is the Blessed Mother with the crucifixion depicted on the reverse side. The center and medal are set apart with 4 mm light rose Swarovski crystals.

I asked Our Blessed Mother to help me pick the person who needed this chaplet the most. And the winner is:


Congratulations and email me your address.

Everyone else stay tuned because I might spring another one on you during Lent.


  1. That is beautiful as always, Barbara! Congratulations, Happytalk! Pray for all of us, please! :)

  2. My dear Barbara, I can't begin to tell you how happy you have made me! This is so perfect a gift as we prepare for our season of Lent. I pray that I use this chaplet well and often with sincere oblation for you and yours and for all of the souls in purgatory. Thank you again and again!

  3. Wow, it's so beautiful! Your Rosaries and the way you photograph them are just gorgeous.


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
