St Alphonsus de Ligouri - Chaplet Prayer for the Gifts of the Holy Spirit
This little rosary is a devotion based on the prayers of Saint Alphonsus Liguori and is known as the Chaplet Prayer for the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. It comes with a card of the traditional prayers.
The 7 prayer beads in the chaplet are Czech glass beads, cut in a shape called a "cathedral bead" as they look like stained glass window panes. The beads are a translucent red with picasso marbling on the ends which gives them a gorgeous ancient look - Czech glass beads are among the best in the world. All the beads are separately linked with silver rosary wire and joined with short lengths of chain.
The loop meets at a center connector of the Crown of Thorns, with the Sacred Heart on the back. The crucifix is a traditional lily-arm style and a medal of St Alphonsus completes the chaplet.
