Light Sapphire Blue Special Intention Rosary ~ Speziale Original

http://www.rosarystuff.com/product.asp?itemid=690
Over the last few years I've run into A LOT of people who are really struggling. Folks are feeling more and more worried, burdened, fearful and helpless. I can't even begin to tell you how much cancer I've seen in the last several years. It's been crazy! Add to that all of the scary things happening on the world stage, along with the moral decay spreading throughout our society, and it can all get to be a bit overwhelming at times. This is why I believe it's time to call in reinforcements. Someone to provide wisdom, guidance and intervention. In other words, it's time to call in the big guns by turning to God on a much larger scale.

With this idea in mind, I quickly found myself inspired (and strongly driven) to create a special rosary. I call it The Speziale Special Intention Rosary (SSIR for short). It is a new way of helping people organize their thoughts so they can ask God for help and intervention while still meditating on the Mysteries of the rosary. Kind of like a Trapper Keeper for prayer. My hope is that it will help people process through the emotional stress and trauma of their daily lives while also giving them the ability to focus on some good stuff too. We all know that constant focus on overwhelming negativity isn't healthy for anyone, but hopefully this rosary will give people an opportunity to voice their fears, ask for help, and then recognize, and be grateful for, all of the wonderful blessings in their lives (even those we sometimes take for granted).

This particular SSIR was made using beautiful light sapphire, ab clear and white pearl Czech glass beads.  The photo center features Our Lady, Undoer/Untier of Knots who has recently become a popular mainstream image thanks mainly to Pope Francis.  He considers it one of his favorite depictions of Mary.  The original painting was created by Johann Melchior Georg Schmittdner around 1700 and hangs in the Church of St. Peter am Perlach in Augsburg, Germany.  Mary is shown undoing or untying knots in a ribbon.  The knots can be representative of all kinds of things from sin, world and community instability, marriage, medical, or job problems, or any personal or societal issue that seems insurmountable and beyond our reach to resolve on our own.

Sacred Heart Rosary Beads Aqua Blue Lampwork Floral Wire Wrapped by The Rosary Works.


The Ave beads in this pretty rosary are 6mm aqua fire polished beads from Czechoslovakia. They are a pale aqua color with facets that sparkle and dance in the light. Each of these beads has a 3mm silver plated bead cap at either end. The Pater beads are 9mm x 13mm handmade lampwork beads. These beautiful beads have light blue flowers with green vines on a dark aqua background in the center of the beads. The center is encased in clear crystal which magnifies the flowers. Because these beads are handmade, no two beads are exactly the same. Some are a little larger than the others and some are a little smaller. This adds to the charm and beauty of the rosary. The Pater beads are accented with Tibetan Silver spacers.

The center honors the Sacred Heart of Jesus and it has a reverse carved image of Our Lady of Carmel on the back. The back is also stamped "Chapel" and "Italy" in block letters. The intricate crucifix is a Pardon Crucifix. The Pardon Crucifix is also known as the Indulgence Crucifix. Originally, Pope Pius X granted indulgences to anyone who prayed with the crucifix or who kissed the crucifix. The back of the crucifix says: "Father Forgive Them" and "Behold This Heart Which Has So Loved Men." Both center and the crucifix are composed of silver colored metal. The wire is copper wire with fine silver plated onto it.  Please click here to learn more about this rosary and please visit my shop, The Rosary Works, to see more of my wire wrapped, unbreakable rosaries
