Saint Monica Pocket Rosary, Christian Prayer Beads
This pretty pocket rosary features one of Swarovski's new season's colour pearls, a soft iridescent light blue with pink undertones - perfect for a chaplet of Saint Monica, the mother of Saint Augustine.
This little set of prayer beads is one-quarter of the full Christian rosary, with one week or prayer beads and a single cruciform and invitatory bead. A white enamel crucifix and medal of Saint Monica completes the set.
I've used lovely 8mm round Swarovski pearls for the prayer beads, and 12mm coin pearls finished with white opal crystals and wire-wrapping in the front.
Saint Monica was the mother of the Christian saint, Augustine of Hippo. When Augustine started down a path of wild living, Monica prayed for him every night for 32 years. Her prayers from a mother's heart were answered when he converted to Christianity, becoming one of the greatest of Christian saints. Monica's patronages include married women, mothers and difficult marriages.

A card with prayers based on Lectionary Lessons that can be used with this rosary is included, and it will be attractively packaged.
