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

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us


TIEPOLO, Giovanni Battista
The Institution of the Rosary

St Louis de Montfort  ~~ "Mary is Queen of heaven and earth by grace, as Jesus is the King of them by nature and conquest."

I intended to do this days ago, in preparation for Mother's Day, but...life distracted me.

Instead, I'll do it halfway through the month, at noon on May 15 -- a rosary giveaway. Leave a comment here (with your name and a way to get in touch -- this part is a must) between now and then (noon on May 15) and I'll give away this rosary.

The center of this rosary is one of my favorites, as is the crucifix. I paired the regal blue pearls with a beautiful soft shade of yellow. The Ave beads are 6mm deep blue Swarovski crsytal pearls, and the Pater Noster beads are 6mm jonquil Swarovski crystals, capped with bronze caps. They are strung on 49-strand, flexible steel wire with light lemon yellow Czech and bronze seed beads. The center and the crucifix are both hand cast from solid bronze.


  1. Oh my, Barbara! All of your rosaries are lovely but this one is truly one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. I love the blue and yellow motif!

  2. Ack... I meant to add... Happy Mother's Day!

  3. You make lovely rosaries, how nice of you to give one away. Anne. anneg@vtc.net
