St Dymphna Chaplet Rosary, Patron Saint of Stress & Psychological Problems
A small rosary known is sometimes known as a pocket rosary or a chaplet rosary. They are often used for special prayer purposes or occasions, and are often dedicated to a particularly inspirational saint. Many have traditional prayers that have been used with them for centuries.
This little rosary is the Chaplet of Saint Dymphna, an Irish saint who is the patroness of domestic and sexual abuse victims as well as for those suffering from stress or psychological problems. She became the patron saint of those who suffer neurological disorders - and, consequently, of psychologists, psychiatrists, and neurologists, as well as being patron saint of runaways.
There are 17 beads in total in the layout, 15 for the years of Dymphna's short life and 2 for the intentions of the Holy Father. A wee Celtic cross hangs at the center and a medal of St Dymphna begins and ends the chaplet.
I've used pale pink 7mm round crystal beads for the chaplet, each linked by hand into a loop of 15 beads that meets at a medal of Our Lady of the Angels. The front extension has two larger pink beads finished with wee rose Swarovski® crystals.
Length: 9.4" (24cm) Medal: 1" (2.5cm) Beads: 7mm & 10mm round crystal. The chaplet comes in attractive packaging, along with a card with the traditional prayers.
