OUR LADY'S ROSARIES

GIVING HONOR & GLORY TO GOD THROUGH OUR BLESSED MOTHER'S ROSARY

THE PURPOSE OF THIS PAGE IS TO POINT OUT THE UNIQUE FEATURES

OF THE SOLDIERS ROSARY AND PROVIDE INFORMATION RELATING

TO COMPONENTS USED IN ITS CONSTRUCTION.

A LOT OF THOUGHT WENT INTO ITS DESIGN. SEVERAL PEOPLE PROVIDED INPUT AND WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR THEIR HELP. THE ILLUSTRATION BELOW CONTAINS QUOTES FROM

SOME OF THEM. 

WE ALSO RECEIVED MUCH HELP

FROM A DEVOUT GREEK ORTHODOX PRIEST WHO WE CONSIDER A VERY GOOD FRIEND. HE HELPED EVALUATE

ONE OF THE PROTOTYPES AND PROVIDED GUIDANCE WHEN IT

WAS MOST NEEDED.

SOLDIERS ROSARY

  • A SOLDIER IS A SKILLED WARRIOR.
  • ANY MEMBER OF THE MILITARY, REGARDLESS OF BRANCH OF SERVICE, IS CONSIDERED A SOLDIER.
  • IT'S NOT NECESSARY TO BE A MEMBER OF THE MILITARY TO BE A SOLDIER IN OUR BLESSED MOTHER'S ARMY.
  • WE ARE INVOLVED IN A SPIRITUAL WAR AGAINST THE EVIL ONE.
  • WE CAN'T DO IT BY OURSELVES; WE NEED GOD'S HELP.
  • THE ROSARY IS THE WEAPON GOD GAVE US, THROUGH THE BLESSED MOTHER, FOR PROTECTION FROM THE EVIL ONE.
  • IT WILL ONLY WORK IF WE USE IT FOR PRAYER.

ROSARY COMPONENTS

~~~

CRUCIFIX

A BLACK INLAID CROSS WITH THE GREEK LETTERS, ALPHA-OMEGA

(THE BEGINNING AND THE END) & CHI-RHO

(JESUS CHRIST)

ON THE REVERSE.

EACH END OF THE CRUCIFIX HAS THREE "BUMPS" OR BUDS, A REMINDER OF THE BLESSED TRINITY. 

WHEREVER ONE PERSON OF THE TRINITY GOES, THE OTHER TWO ARE ALSO THERE.

Note: We try to use only crucifixes with the Greek letters on the reverse. However, they are not always available.

~~~

OUR FATHER BEADS

MADE FROM 9MM AND .40 S&W NICKEL PLATED BRASS SHELL CASES. WE USE THEM AS A REMINDER THAT THE ROSARY IS A POWERFUL SPIRITUAL WEAPON IN THE FIGHT AGAINST THE EVIL ONE. IT ALSO BRINGS TO MIND THE BIBLE REFERENCE OF BEATING SWORDS (WEAPONS) INTO PLOW SHARES.

~~~

HAIL MARY BEADS

 MADE FROM PAINTED OX-BONE. THE OX IS A STURDY, RELIABLE ANIMAL REPRESENTING TENACITY,

THOROUGHNESS AND PERSEVERENCE.

THESE ARE QUALITIES EVERY SOLDIER

NEEDS FOR SUCCESS IN BATTLE.

OXEN WERE USED FOR SACRIFICIAL OFFERINGS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT. 

THEY ALSO RECALL THE SACRIFICIAL VICTIM OF THE NEW LAW, OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST AND HIS PASSION.

~~~

CORD

BLACK NYLON SEINE TWINE, THE SAME STUFF USED IN MAKING COMMERCIAL FISHING NETS. 

IT IS A REMINDER THAT

OUR LORD

JESUS CHRIST

CHOSE THE APOSTLES TO BECOME

"FISHERS OF MEN."

~~~

ALL COMPONENTS WERE SELECTED

FOR THEIR DURABILITY AND SHOULD PROVIDE A LIFETIME OF SERVICE.

IF ANY OF OUR ROSARIES FAIL TO PROVIDE SUITABLE SERVICE UNDER REASONABLE USE, WE WILL GLADLY REPAIR OR REPLACE IT .
