Our Lady of Fatima Chaplet Prayer Beads
The Chaplet of Our Lady of Fatima consists of a string of nine prayers beads with a crucifix on one end and an Our Lady of Fatima medal on the other. This "niner" style of small rosary is a convenient size to carry with you, and uses 3 well-known prayers - the Hail Mary, Our Father and Glory Be prayer.
I've used larger beads for this niner, each 10mm round rich sapphire blue faceted crystal - a great size for those who prefer a larger size bead. The beads are all hand-linked with silver rosary wire which means the strand drapes nicely through your hands.
At one end is an ornate Florentine-style crucifix with a lightly oxidized finish to bring out the details of the filigree pattern. At the other end is a medal of Our Lady of Fatima, with the words "Pray For Us" on the back.
Length: 31cm / 12.25 inches
Medal: 2.5cm / 1 inch tall
Crucifix: 5cm / 2 inches tall including the loop.
In Fatima, Portugal in 1917, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to three shepherd children, to whom she confided three secrets. She also asked them to pray the Rosary, which she told them was the key to personal and world peace. John Paul II credited Our Lady of Fatima with saving his life after the attempt on his life in 1981.
This well-made chaplet will last for many years of prayer. It comes attractively packaged along with a card of the traditional prayers.
