Mary Undoer of Knots Pocket Rosary, Single Decade Jasper Beads
Here is a single decade rosary dedicated to Mary, Undoer of Knots. This devotion is a favorite of Pope Francis. Originally prayed for marriage difficulties, it can be used to pray for any other "knotty" problem in life.
This little pocket rosary is based on a painting from the 18th century which was inspired by a meditation of Saint Irenaeus (Bishop of Lyon and martyred in 202). He drew a parallel between Eve and Mary, saying: “Eve, by her disobedience, tied the knot of disgrace for the human race; whereas Mary, by her obedience, undid it”. It is commonly known as "Mary Untier of Knots" and "Mary Undoer of Knots".
The beads are 8mm round brecciated jasper - rich maroon, brown and black colors represent rebuilding of lives, brick by brick, after being freed from entanglements. The circle is joined by a medal of Mary, Undoer of Knots and finished with a silver plated crucifix.
Length: 19.5" (24cm)
Center medal: 0.9" (2.2cm)
Crucifix: 1.6" (4cm) tall
Well constructed for regular use, this small rosary is suitable for men or women. It comes with a card with the traditional prayers and will be attractively packaged.
