St Joseph Nineer Chaplet Rosary, Jasper Beads
St Joseph, the husband of Mary and foster-father of Jesus, is the saint featured in this handmade niner rosary. The niner rosary is a popular form of chaplet prayer beads, ideal for today's busy lifestyles.
For this chaplet I have chosen larger-sized 10mm round jasper gemstone beads for the 3 sets of 3 prayer beads. The larger than usual beads makes this a good choice for those who find handling small beads difficult, and also for those who like a more substantial feel in their chaplet or pocket rosary.
Joseph is patron of the universal Church, fathers, carpenters, real estate transactions, social justice and a happy death.
Joseph is also patron of the dying because, assuming he died before Jesus' public life, he died with Jesus and Mary close to him, the way we all would like to leave this earth
Between the 3 sets of prayer beads is a pattern of small pewter and Czech glass beads, and the chaplet begins & ends with a pewter medal of Saint Joseph holding the child Jesus.
Length: 18cm /7 inches;
Medal: 2.5cm / 1 inch tall.
The chaplet comes with a pamphlet of suggested prayers, and will be attractively packaged.
