Ghirelli honors one of the Church's great saints -- Ignatius of Loyola. His constant endeavor was to lead the faithful to give greater praise to God through both prayer and apostolic service. He is known for a repeated phrase, which became his motto and that of the Society of Jesus, which he founded: "For the Greater Glory of God."
This unique and highly creative and detailed rosary features 6mm x 8mm oval Italian wood beads in brown color, with a custom Crucifix, a Centerpiece that features an image of Saint Ignatius on one side and the symbol of the Society of Jesus on the other side, Our Father/Pater medals with the following words in Latin: Ad, Maiorem, De, Gloriam (“For the Greater Glory of God”) and their abbreviations on the reverse side. A custom charm attachment hangs below the Centerpiece which features an image of Our Lady. Available in antique silver finish.
I love this rosary. Thanks for making it available again. LOVE the motto! I'm bringing it with me to Easter Sunday Mass
I ordered two of the Ignatius rosaries for my two sons; one who is receiving confirmation (taking the name Ignatius) and the oldest son, his sponsor. Both attend a Jesuit high school together. The rosary is perfect. I love the AMDG and the quote on the back of the crucifix. I hope they love them as much as I do.
It is difficult for a man to find a suitable rosary. Saint Ignatius speaks to many of us. He was a soldier who responded to God's call. The rosary that was designed around this Saint is awesome with the wood beads and appropriately designed for a man's use. Some rosaries are designed with an effeminate look with pink stones and other ornamentation. You got this one just right. Can't wait to say my rosary with it today.
This Rosary is great for anyone and anytime; but I think more special when on a Retreat or contemplating a retreat.
High quality rosary, reasonably priced, received in a timely manner. Very happy w/purchase.
