We all, in some way, need to work on mercy; the ways in which we practice it, the ways in which we receive it, and the ways in which we take it for granted. This rosary was created for prayer and reflection on the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy. Instead of the familiar five decade rosary, we created this rosary with seven decades.  Each decade is intended for prayer for one of the seven acts of mercy, be they corporal or spiritual. Our prayer is that, while praying this rosary, we will grow in our understanding of mercy and, with the intercession of Our Lady, be given the Grace to practice these acts with a deeper understanding, love and commitment to Our Precious Lord. 

Blue is the color which represents mercy so we have chosen a sparkling AB crystal in brilliant blue for the Aves. Paters are sea glass in the same blue. In an effort to make this a visually positive rosary, we’ve spaced the Aves and capped the Paters with gold. A large Italian imported Miraculous Medal center and Lilly crucifix completed this limited edition rosary which measures 22 ½”
