Mary Immaculate was officially declared the patroness of the United States in 1847.
For more than 150 years, Catholics throughout the land have placed themselves and all their hopes, dreams and concerns under the special patronage of the holy Mother of God, whose Immaculate Conception is venerated by the piety of the faithful.
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.
Antique silver finish with red and blue enamel on the front of the Crucifix, with a portion of the Pledge Of Allegiance, “One Nation Under God”, inscribed on the reverse side.
The Centerpiece, also in antique silver finish, presents an image of Our Lady, with a map of the U.S. behind Her. The reverse side presents an inscription of Psalm 33:12. 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.
It came just in time for the fourth! On the back of the crucifix it says: "One nation under God" I it. I think I've started a new hobby collecting rosaries. Beautiful artwork.
I have prayed the Patriotic Rosary before and this is the PERFECT rosary for that. I love that Mary, our patron of the United States, is depicted on the centerpiece like she's watching over us. Crucifix is gorgeous. Since each state's abbreviation is on the Hail Mary beads, I don't have to follow in a book anymore, I can just look at the beads. Beautiful rosary. Absolutely love it.
Made a beautiful gift to my veteran son. Very unique rosary.
Absolutely wonderful! I have always been so happy with both the service and quality of Ghirelli Rosaries.
