“Mother Teresa, in all aspects of her life, was a generous dispenser of divine mercy, making herself available for everyone through her welcome and defense of human life, those unborn and those abandoned and discarded. … She bowed down before those who were spent, left to die on the side of the road, seeing in them their God-given dignity …
"For Mother Teresa, mercy was the “salt” which gave flavor to her work, it was the “light” which shone in the darkness of the many who no longer had tears to shed for their poverty and suffering. “I think, perhaps, we may have some difficult in calling her “Saint Teresa”: her holiness is so near to us, so tender and so fruitful that we continual to spontaneously call her “Mother Teresa”.
"May this tireless worker of mercy help us increasingly to understand that our only criterion for action is gratuitous love, free from every ideology and all obligations, offered freely to everyone without distinction of language, culture, race or religion. Mother Teresa loved to say, “Perhaps I don’t speak their language, but I can smile”. Let us carry her smile in our hearts and give it to those whom we meet along our journey, especially those who suffer.” -- Pope Francis, Homily from the Holy Mass and Canonization of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Saint Peter's Square, 4 Sept. 4, 2016
MOTHER TERESA OF CALCUTTA ROSARY
Beautiful, original, exclusive design from Ghirelli
Ghirelli honors the Church's newest Saint, Mother Teresa of Calcutta. This exceptional rosary is unique in every aspect: the placement of the Ave Maria beads, the depiction of Teresa's selfless act of charity on the Crucifix, her familiar image on the Centerpiece, and more. 6mm Bohemian blue and white glass beads, carefully positioned to replicate her ubiquitous habit. The Crucifix and Centerpiece present blue enamel inlay. In Antique Silver finish. Also includes a faux white leatherette pouch, with Mother Teresa's image imprinted on the front, as well as a small brochure insert showing the inspirational text appearing on both the Crucifix ("A Little Pencil In The Hand of God") and the Centerpiece ("It is not how much we do, but how much love we put into what we do.")
More than expected! It is gorgeous 💓 a gift for my dad and he absolutely loves it!! This is my third rosary I have ordered from ghirelli, I have not been disappointed!
As I learn more about Saint Mother Teresa I am growing more deeply drawn to her. I looked at this rosary for quite some time before purchasing but when I received it I knew it was a wonderful choice! Its simplicity and choice of colors represent her so well. I love Ghirelli Rosaries as they are so very beautiful and capture the spirit of the Saint they honor.A true witness and reminder of our faith!
I ordered this Rosary as a gift for my soon-to-be goddaughter on her Confirmation. She chose St. Teresa of Calcutta as her patron saint, and I hope that this rosary will serve as a reminder of this sacrament. Only downside is that some of the lettering coloring was a bit faded and couldn't be fully made out, but the engravings were perfect. Would recommend!
I recently just read a book about Mother Teresa. This book was shared with me by a student. She graduates this May, so I bought her one of these rosaries as a gift. I also ordered one for myself, as I have come to adore Mother Teresa.
I bought one for me, and one for a friend. Love all the detail on the rosary, great quality and shipping was fast.
