St Philomena Rosary, Swarovski Crystal Pearls
Swarovski crystal pearl rosary in rose pink and burgundy, featuring a centre connector of Saint Philomena who the Pope has named as of Patroness of the Living Rosary.
The 5 decades of Hail Mary beads are 8mm round crystal pearls in a colour called Powder Rose. Each pearl is linked with silver rosary wire, so the set flows smoothly through your hands in use.
The Our Father beads between the decades are 10mm round in a colour called Bordeaux - a rich burgundy shade. These larger beads are wire-wrapped for extra strength, and to give that unique handmade look to the rosary.
At the heart of the rosary is a medal of St Philomena, the patron saint of babies, children and youth, and the solace of the suffering and sick. She is recognised as a consoler of distressed mothers, who often invoke her for material or spiritual help for their children.
The rosary design is completed with a lovely antique silver pewter cross with a lily motif in the center and the end of each arm. Lilies represent rebirth and hope, just as the resurrection does in the Christian faith. Lilies are mentioned or alluded to several times in the Bible, and is associated with the Virgin Mary, innocence and purity.
Length when hanging: 54cm / 21.25 inches;
Crucifix: 4.5cm /1.75 inches.
This full-size rosary is well-made for years of prayerful use and comes in a handmade rosary pouch to keep it in.
