PADRE ‘JAKE’ LABOON SJ:
AVE BEADS: Late 1800’s – early 1900’s very rare mix of sea green beads because of his service in the US Navy Submarines. They are a reminder of the blue green waters that he dove into to save the life of a Navy pilot.
PATER BEADS: Fine grade of wood.
CROSS: VICTORY OVER ADAM’s SIN – late 1700’s – (2.5 in.) Cast from a piece over 100 years old.
The rosary is made all in one loop following tradition. This design also does not tangle or know as easily as the pendant design.
Before becoming a Jesuit Priest, ‘Jake’ a graduate of the US Naval Academy class of 1943 was stationed on the submarine, USS Pito (SS 265). During WWII. LTJG Laboon won the Silver Star for bravery for diving from his moving submarine in the mine infested waters to rescue a downed aviator under heavy enemy fire. A Navy Frigate was named after him.
