Hand Crafted "One of a Kind" and Limited Edition
Rosaries and Chaplets
In his beautiful work, Dark Night of the Soul, Saint John of the Cross, wrote:
"Into this dark night souls begin to enter when God draws them forth from the state of beginners- which is the state of those that meditate on the spiritual road- and begins to set them in the state of progressives- which is that of those who are already contemplatives- to the end that, after passing through it, they may arrive at the state of the perfect, which is that of the Divine union of the soul with God".
This rosary was inspired by this writing and is dedicated to all, who in reaching toward the light that is divine union with God, are passing through that dark night.
The transition from darkness to light is symbolized by the contrast of the black mesh Paters to the sparkle of the beautifully cut Aurora Borealis rondelle crystal Aves.
Throughout this sacred strand, black is symbolic of our prayer to be delivered from the darkness. The brilliance of the crystal symbolizes assurance that our God will bring us through the darkness and carry us into His light. We shall return to the light that is the state of perfection which is “divine union of the soul with God.”
Machine cut crystal Aves and black mesh Paters are spaced with Bavarian glass. This limited edition rosary is completed in white bronze with a large Marian Crown center and ornate crucifix.

“In the twilight of life, God will not judge us on our earthly possessions and human successes, but on how well we have loved.”
