THE DETAILS AND THEIR MEANING
On one side a wonderful sculpture of the Immaculate, carefully reproduced in each detail.
This work represents our Most Holy Mother Mary, whom the Church shows us as the Mother of Mercy and Refuge of Sinners. Our Heavenly Mother obtains for us the Grace of Penance.
On the reverse side, expressing the joy of Forgiveness, the beautiful reproduction in bas-relief of Rembrandt’s “The Return of the Prodigal Son”, dated 1668, and exhibited in the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg.
In this image, the son makes the following plea: “Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you; I no longer deserve to be called your son.” But his father ordered his servants: “Quickly bring the finest robe and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Take the fattened calf and slaughter it. Then let us celebrate with a feast, because this son of mine was dead, and has come to life again; he was lost, and has been found.” Luke 15:21,24
In metal, antique silver finish, with hand-made enameled inserts, size 4.5 cm
THE DETAILS AND THEIR MESSAGE
THE CROSS: The Throne of God’s eternal love and Altar of His Mercy: “by Your Holy Cross, You have redeemed the world”.
“O Eternal Love, You command Your Sacred Image to be painted and reveal to us the inconceivable fount of mercy. You bless whoever approaches Your rays, and a soul all black will turn into snow. O sweet Jesus, it is here You established the throne of Your mercy to bring joy and hope to sinful man. From Your open Heart, as from a pure fount, flows comfort to a repentant heart and soul.” -- From the "Diary of Saint Faustina Kowalska"
PENANCE, CONFESSION, REMITTANCE OF SINS:
“Daughter, when you approach the confessional, know this: that I Myself am waiting there for you. I am only hidden by the priest, but I Myself act in your soul.” -- From the "Diary of Saint Faustina Kowalska"
“The two rays denote Blood and Water. The pale ray stands for the Water which makes souls righteous. The red ray stands for the Blood which is the life of souls. These two rays issued forth from the very depths of My tender mercy when My agonized heart was opened by a lance on the Cross. These rays shield souls from the wrath of My Father. Happy is the one who dwell in their shelter, for the just hand of God shall not lay hold of him.” -- From the "Diary of Saint Faustina Kowalska"
THE SYMBOL OF THE DOVE, THE HOLY SPIRIT:
And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, "Receive the holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained." John 20:22,23
Pressed glass 6 mm round beads “The white ray represents the water that purifies the souls; that red, the blood that is the life of the souls” -- From the "Diary of Saint Faustina Kowalska"
The white and red beads represent the colors indicated by Jesus to Saint Faustina during the now famous Apparition.
I received my Divine Mercy rosary Friday April 13th. They are beautiful and unique. I had my rosary blessed today by my parish priest. Thank you so much. God bless
The rosary is very beautiful, but I did not receive the rosary in a jubilee of mercy box, but a regular Ghirelli box.
