“My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God.”
“In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph.”
These words of Our Lady have inspired this new rosary, dedicated to the 100th Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions.
OUR LADY OF FATIMA 100TH ANNIVERSARY ROSARY Original, detailed and exclusive design from Ghirelli
This truly one-of-a-kind rosary offers breathtaking detail to honor the momentous event that happened in Portugal a century ago:
The Crucifix: characterized by the "Via" -- the Way, or path that leads to the refuge of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.The Crucifix embodies the words of Our Lady “My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God”. We have chosen to symbolically place the three little shepherds as the first to travel the "Via" and walk on the path so clearly indicated by Our Lady.
The top part of the Crucifix takes shape from the actual colonnaded Basilica at Fatima in Portugal. When the Basilica is viewed from the front it actually looks like a cross. This is Fatima -- the shining place of grace -- chosen in God's plan for the Apparitions of Our Lady.
As for the imagery conveyed by The Centerpiece: The Immaculate Heart is opened to represent the passage through which we are called to enter. The thorns represent our difficulties ... but the steady gaze of Our Lady, in profile, watches and promises aid into the safe haven of her Immaculate Heart. The back of The Centerpiece contains the wonderful words of hope Our Lady proclaimed: “In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph.”
This exclusive rosary is made with Cobalt Blue 6mm Bohemian glass beads, and White 7mm Bohemian glass Our Father beads. Includes a faux leatherette imprinted pouch and full color brochure insert.
Mary Immaculate was officially declared the patroness of the United States in 1847.

With the new USA Rosary, we hope Americans far and wide will be strengthened in their resolve to be ever more faithful followers of Jesus, while praying a rosary for the United States.

The Hail Mary beads are heavy antique copper-finished medals, with an image of the Immaculate Conception on one side and each state’s individual abbreviation on the other side. The Our Father bead medals present the Miraculous Medal in antique finish.

“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

In 2013, Pope Francis imparted his Apostolic Blessing to the "Flame Of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary" movement.
MORE ABOUT THE "FLAME OF LOVE" MOVEMENT Elizabeth Kindelmann was a laywoman from Budapest, Hungary who died in 1985. She, like St. Faustina, was given a mission by God and His Mother for His Church to emphasize a special Grace from God for His Church. She was always obedient to priests and bishops. Our Lady told her to gather 12 special pastors, four from within Budapest and 8 from outside the city to start a Movement to spread this special Grace to the whole world. Elizabeth was instructed to keep a Diary, which explains the special Grace, which God calls the “Grace from the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary” and “the greatest Grace given to mankind since the Incarnation”. God promised that this Grace would be spread to the whole world.
In the Diary, our Lady always speaks about the “Cause”, i.e. the Flame of Love Movement . She asks Elizabeth to be zealous and to speak often to these priests about “moving the Cause ahead.” Her priest-confessors were sometimes slow to understand and slow to act, even though our Lady asked for action. Yet, they were accepting and sympathetic toward Elizabeth.
Fr. Gabriel Rona, S.J., a Hungarian priest, was also a missionary to Latin America and translated her diary into Spanish. (His book was used for the English translations of both the entire diary and the Simplified Version). He was appointed the Spiritual Director of the Movement for many years. In 1989, Cardinal Echeverria Ruiz (Archdiocese of Guayaquil, Ecuador) approved Fr. Rona’s translation. In 1996, he approved the statutes of the Flame of Love Movement for his archdiocese and asked the Holy Father to approve the Movement for the whole world. Cardinal Stafford, prefect for the Congregation for the Laity, sent a letter encouraging the Cardinal in his work.
Cardinal Peter Erdo, Archbishop of Elizabeth’s Archdiocese of Budapest, went more deeply into the question by establishing a theological commission. In 2009, Cardinal Erdo said that the commission found her writings free from error. He gave his imprimatur; wrote about the importance of this Movement of Grace as a gift from God; and also formally established the Flame of Love as a lay movement in his archdiocese.
Since then, other Hungarian dioceses have done the same, as have other dioceses around the world.In the United States, the Flame of Love Movement is just beginning under the International Pious Association of the Faithful established to spread the Message to the whole world. This association has been in existence for many years in other countries of the world.
Anthony Mullen (who lives in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia where the National Center is located) has been named National Director by the International Association. Archbishop Chaput (Philadelphia) gave his imprimatur to the English translation from the Spanish of the Flame of Love Book released by the Center.
We see ourselves as a grassroots movement, trying to faithfully and prudently put into practice the desires of God and our Mother as described in the Diary. We pledge total loyalty and obedience to the Church. We especially invite all priests and religious to help us to guide this new Movement solely for God’s glory in His Church and according to His Will.

“... we are facing an enormous and dramatic clash between good and evil, death and life, the “culture of death” and the “culture of life”. We find ourselves not only faced with but necessarily in the midst of this conflict: we are all involved and we all share in it, with the inescapable responsibility of choosing to be unconditionally pro-life.” – Saint Pope John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae
“Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person – among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life.” – Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2270
Ghirelli introduces a special and unique rosary that honors the tens of millions of tiny lives that have been lost because of the evil that is abortion.
Our Innocent Martyrs Pro Life Rosary, designed exclusively by Ghirelli, is unique yet provocative. It is our hope that you will use this rosary to pray for not only those innocent martyrs who were aborted from their mother’s womb, but also for those women who are currently contemplating an abortion, the doctors and nurses who are involved in the abortion industry as well as those healthcare workers who protect the unborn daily, for parents who have lost a child to abortion, for those parents overwhelmed by grief and remorse from choosing an abortion, and for those peaceful Pro-Life warriors who are on the front lines at the abortion clinics trying to convince those walking in that choosing life is the right -- the only -- decision.
THE DESIGN CONCEPT:
The Centerpiece: On the front side a beautiful image of Mary, the model of Motherhood, embracing the Child Jesus, who is Life, the Word made flesh! On the back side, a weeping mother embraces an empty space in the form of a child filled with the blood of the baby's martyrdom in abortion.
The Crucifix: On the front side Jesus, the Author of Life, who gave His life so that we might have it in abundance -- which is the fulfillment of His plans for each of us. On the reverse side: a void in the form of a child full of the blood of his martyrdom in abortion. Below this image, three drops of Blood which represents the pain of the Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit -- the Triune God who infused the Soul at the moment of conception. Like Jesus, the child lost to abortion suffers from his killing from which innocent blood descends.
