St Raymond Nonnatus Niner Chaplet Rosary
This small rosary of St Raymond Nonnatus is known as a "niner", taking its name from the fact it has only 9 beads which are assigned easily remembered prayers. Many convents and monasteries created niners for most of the saints, which they sold as a way of generating income. They are a great wee set of prayer beads for today's busy lifestyle too.
This St Raymond chaplet is made with 8mm round white howlite stone beads in the 3 groups of 3 prayer beads, with a medal of St Raymond at one end and a silver pewter crucifix at the other.
Raymond is the patron saint of childbirth, midwives, children, pregnant women, obstetricians, falsely accused people and priests - especially those who want to protect the secrecy of confession.
Length: 24cm / 9.5 inches
Medal: 2.5cm / 1 inch tall
Crucifix: 4.5cm / 1.8 inches.
This little chaplet rosary feels cool & smooth in the fingers, and is suitable for men or women. It comes attractively wrapped along with a card of the prayers for this devotion.
