Romans 12:12 says, 'Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.' You can use the rosary to express this same sentiment - whether joy or despair, Jesus wants us to be fervent in prayer. This Franciscan rosary is unique because it contains seven decades of oval wood beads instead of the traditional five decades. The seven decade Franciscan rosary was introduced among the Franciscans in 1422. Two Hail Mary prayers were added since then to make a total of seventy-two, the traditional age of Mary at her Assumption. This particular rosary commemorates the seven joys of the Blessed Mother. Other features of this rosary include a silver metal crucifix and the San Damiano icon cross. Also important to note is the fact that St. Francis was praying before this cross when the Lord commissioned him to 'rebuild the Church.' This seven decade Franciscan rosary would make a meaningful gift for anyone you know who belongs to the Franciscan Order or an individual who has a special devotion to St. Francis. Like most of the quality rosaries you can buy at St. Patrick's Guild, our seven decade Franciscan rosary comes with a lifetime manufacturer's guarantee and will be sent to you in a deluxe hinged rosary gift box.
