A LARGE, CHUNKY ROSARY
Drawn from the earth by the hands of man, yet formed by the word of God eons ago – We love their natural state, ‘hand faceted’, sometimes called ‘mine cuts’, give a rare and beautifully simple appearance.
It is believed that the birth of St Paul was between the years of 7 and 10 and according to historians.
He shed blood in shipwrecks, prisons and eventually beheaded, martyred in Rome and we hope we have captured the essence of the life of Paul in the dedication of these rosaries. Our priest Father Corey weighed this one in his hands when were first made it and grinned at its power. It is not for the weak of heart! This rosary is sturdy and is heavy but wonderful to pray!
We celebrate 2 major feasts in honor of St Paul. the first is on 25 January, THE FEAST OF PAUL’S CONVERSION and the second on June 29 (Sts Peter and Paul).
……Five times, I have received at the hands of the Jews the forty lashes less one. Three times I have been beaten with rods; once I was stoned. Three times I have been shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been adrift at sea; on frequent journeys, in danger from rivers, danger from robbers, danger from my own people, danger from Gentiles, danger in the city, danger in the wilderness, danger at sea, danger from false brethren; in toil and hardship, through many a sleepless night, in hunger and thirst, often there is the daily pressure upon me of my anxiety for all the churches. Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is made to fall, and I am not indignant? If I must boast, I will boast of the things that show my weakness.’…..2 CORINTHIANS 11:24-30
