One of the oldest most indulgenced rosaries in the Church, the Brigittine rosary features 6 decades and is complete in it's 63 Hail Mary's unlike the Dominican rosary which is complete in 15 decades (5 decades x3).

Long considered the peasant's rosary, it has no "assigned" mysteries, it is left to the user to contemplate their favourite events in the Blessed Virgin's life of 63 years (thus the 63 Hail Mary's).

This Brigittine cord rosary features stripey pink wood beads and laser carved Our Father beads, a double sided Our Lady Untier of Knots laminated wood centre, and a sturdy solid wood crucifix.

Made by hand with love in Canada

How this devotion started?

To show us the mission granted to the Virgin Mary by Her Son, an unknown artist painted Mary Undoer of Knots with great grace. Since 1700, his painting has been venerated in the Church of St. Peter in Perlack, Germany. It was originally inspired by a meditation of Saint Irenaeus (Bishop of Lyon and martyred in 202) based on the parallel made by Saint Paul between Adam and Christ. Saint Irenaeus, in turn, made a comparison between Eve and Mary, saying:

"Eve, by her disobedience, tied the knot of disgrace for the human race; whereas Mary, by her obedience, undid it".

But what are these knots?

They are the problems and struggles we face for which we do not see any solution.
Knots of discord in your family, lack of understanding between parents and children, disrespect, violence, the knots of deep hurts between husband and wife, the absence of peace and joy at home. They are also the knots of anguish and despair of separated couples, the dissolution of the family, the knots of a drug addict son or daughter, sick or separated from home or God, knots of alcoholism, the practice of abortion, depression, unemployment, fear, solitude…Ah, the knots of our life! How they suffocate the soul, beat us down and betray the heart’s joy and separate us from God.
