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 favorite events in the Blessed Virgin's life of 63 years (thus the 63 Hail Mary's).
This Brigittine rosary features rose medal Our Fathers (Our Lady of Grace on the back) and a rose center with Our Lady of Lourdes on the back, as it was the Brigittine rosary Bernadette prayed at Lourdes. The crucifix has 5 roses to honor the 5 Holy Wounds of Our Lord. Nice plump oval Czech glass beads, swirled in lavender and rose red.
This rosary isn't overly heavy and feels so nice in your hands! Makes a beautiful unique gift!
