Padre Pio Chaplet Rosary Bracelet, Gemstone Beads
This chaplet rosary bracelet is a small chaplet of Saint Padre Pio that you can carry with you by wearing it as a bracelet. The beads are laid out in the traditional pattern for the chaplet of Padre Pio.
The bracelet features a small gold-plated medal of Saint Pio, a lovely heart-shaped Guardian Angel charm and a small gold crucifix. The bracelet is made with 8mm round pink rhodonite gemstone prayer beads, separated with turquoise Czech glass beads and tiny gold spacers. The prayer beads are laid out in 3 groups of 3 beads and a card of the prayers is included.
Padre Pio was an Italian Catholic priest. On 16 June 2002, he was canonized by Pope John Paul II. A Mystic, Confessor, and Stigmatic, for 50 years he suffered the five wounds of the crucifixion - the first priest of the Church to bear the stigmata. He is the patron saint of civil defense volunteers and of adolescents as well as those suffering from stress - he is also considered to be a "healing saint".
The pictured bracelet is made for a wrist measuring around 17cm (6.5 inches). Larger and smaller bracelet sizes may have a different arrangement of the wee spacer beads to allow for the different sizing, but the overall look will be just as nice.
Here is a general guide to sizing:
Women - Small:16cm (6"), Medium:17cm (6.5"), Large:18cm (7"), Larger:19cm (7.5"), X-Large: 20cm (8").
Measure your wrist where you want to wear the bracelet and order that size if you want it to sit firmly on your wrist, or the next size up for a looser fit. You can choose the size you want from the drop-down menu at checkout.
The bracelet comes attractively wrapped along with a card of the traditional chaplet prayers.
