St Matthew the Apostle Chaplet Rosary Niner
Chaplet of Saint Matthew the Apostle, made in the "niner" style of pocket rosaries which has 9 beads in 3 groups of 3. This style of chaplet has been popular for centuries and is used for just about all the saints - a great wee rosary for today's busy lifestyles.
Use this rosary with the traditional prayers of the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be together with a personal prayer or petition. A pamphlet with some suggested prayers in included.
The beads in this chaplet are Czech art glass in colors of the earth, sea and sky which remind me of the land of Galilee where Matthew walked. They are linked together by hand with silver rosary wire, with a crucifix at one end and a medal of St Matthew at the other.
A tax collector at the time he met Jesus,he became a disciple after answering His simple call "follow me". Matthew is the patron saint of bankers.
The crucifix is a "lily-style" cross which has 3 pointed ends on the arms like a lily. These 3 points represent the Holy trinity of God the Father, Son and Holy Ghost - and when added together they stand for the 12 Apostles who went out from the cross to carry the Good News to the world. A great cross for a chaplet for St Matthew, a preacher and writer of the first of the four Gospels in the New Testament.
Length: 24cm / 9.5 inches;
Beads: 10mm Czech art glass nuggets.
A lovely chaplet for personal use or for gifting. It comes attractively wrapped with the pamphlet.
