Car Rosary, Sacred Heart Medal & 5-Way Catholic Cross
A small rosary with a magnetic clasp, often called a car or auto rosary or a traveler's rosary.
Small rosaries with clasps are ideal for people on the move - they can easily be secured to your luggage or a backpack, the rear view mirror of your car or inside a purse or pocket.
They make thoughtful gifts for those in hospital too as they can loop around the bed frame, and are ideal for a home altar, attaching around a bedside lamp, or anywhere you like to keep a wee rosary handy.
I've used 8mm round natural unakite gemstone beads for this rosary, lovely stone beads with natural, earthy colors. The beads are all hand-linked with bronze rosary wire to match the Sacred Heart center medal and cross.
The cross is known as a 5-way Catholic cross, and is composed of four medals: the Scapular medal (The Sacred Heart with Our Lady of Mt. Carmel on the back); Saint Christopher; the Miraculous medal (with the cross, the M, the hearts, and the 12 stars on the back); and Saint Joseph. To get a count of five, look for a dove and the Sacred Heart in the center.
Length: 9.1 inches (23cm)
Medal: 0.8 inch (2cm)
Cross: 1.1 inches (2.75cm)
A great rosary for yourself or for sharing your faith by gifting to another. It comes nicely packaged to treat you, or so it is ready for gifting.
