St Bernadette & Our Lady of Lourdes Chaplet Prayer Bracelet
A chaplet prayer bracelet is a wearable rosary made in the same layout as a "niner" chaplet. This set of wearable prayer beads is dedicated to Saint Bernadette and Our Lady of Lourdes, and is stretchy for easy on-off wear.
The 3 sets of prayer beads in this bracelet are 10mm round blue jasper, separated with a pattern of little Czech glass trade beads. At the front hangs a small medal with St Bernadette on one side, and Our Lady of Lourdes with Bernadette is shown on the other side.
In 1858 in the grotto of Massabielle near Lourdes in southern France, Our Lady appeared 18 times to Bernadette Soubirous, a young peasant girl. She revealed herself as the Immaculate Conception &asked that a chapel be built on the site. Many people have experienced miracles of healing attributed to the waters of Lourdes, which has become the most famous modern shrine of Our Lady.
To find what size bracelet will fit you best, measure your wrist just above the wristbone and order that size for a snug fit on your arm. Order the next size up for a looser fit. The number of small glass beads may vary to achieve the right fit for you.
The bracelet comes attractively packaged along with a prayer card of the traditional prayers for this chaplet.
