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.
much more so than the picture, I had plan to give it to my granddaughter ,but I am keeping it, she can pick from the 100's of ROSARIES I have ,this is also one I carry around with me ,I always have a Rosary hanging around my neck loop around and not over my head ,one in my pocket ,I can't tell you how much Rosaries mean to me, I do believe this Rosary could be for any one.
So beautiful and well crafted, I am very happy with my purchase
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.
