Magnificent workmanship. Exquisitely carved-- you can read each letter of St. Benedict's exorcism--both on the front and the back of the crucifix, and the weighty center medallion protects the sturdy little pages that spell it out. The smooth glass Pater beads are a comfort to hold onto during prayerful meditation. The variegated glass Maria beads that begin and end with the round golden beads remind me of the spinning sun at Fatima. It inspires me to pray my heart out. Thank you, Ghirelli Family!
This is a gorgeous rosary, even the beautiful pictures don't do it justice! It has a good, weighty feel too. I just love it!
