Decima Rosary, Single Decade Red Pocket Rosary
A beautiful wee pocket rosary full in vibrant red crystal beads - a lovely way to carry a little rosary with you for those quiet moments in a busy life. The small size of this single-decade rosary means it can be easily slipped into a pocket or purse - or carried in your car or on your bike.
I've used faceted Czech crystal beads for the decade in light red. The loop meets at a special gold-plated center medal which has the Holy Spirit descending on one side and the Fiat of Mary on the other. This little word "fiat" is full of meaning - it literally means "so be it", Mary's response to the Angel Gabriel when told she was to bear the Son of God.
Mary’s fiat is holy because it is through her act of humble submission as a 14- or 15-year-old girl, her openness to God’s plan, that the Son of God makes His entrance into human history.
The single Our Father bead in the front of the rosary shows the dove of peace as it spreads through the world. The cross that begins and ends this little rosary is a simple style, showing Christ on the Cross revealing the fullness of his message.
Length from center back to end of cross: 20cm / 7.9 inches
Center medal: 1.5cm / 0.6 inches
Crucifix: 3.5cm / 1.4 inches
This is a lovely wee rosary for personal use, which would also make a thoughtful gift for another. It comes in attractive wrapping along with a card explaining the symbols in the rosary.
