“And when the Lord's Day came, at the third hour, just as the Holy Spirit descended upon the apostles in a cloud, so Christ descended with a multitude of angels, and received the soul of His beloved mother. For there was such splendour and perfume of sweetness, and angels singing the songs of songs, where the Lord says, As a lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters, that all who were there present fell on their faces, as the apostles fell when Christ transfigured Himself before them on Mount Thabor, and for a whole hour and a half no one was able to rise. But when the light went away, and at the same time with the light itself, the soul of the Blessed Virgin Mary was taken up into heaven with psalms, and hymns, and songs of songs. And as the cloud went up the whole earth shook, and in one moment all the inhabitants of Jerusalem openly saw the departure of St. Mary.”

 Dormition of Mary
Gardenias4Lina


Dormition literally means "the falling asleep." It is the original name for the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
In 1950, in the Apostolic Constitution (Munificentissimus Deus), Pope Pius XII proclaimed the Assumption of Mary a dogma of the Catholic Church in these words: "The Immaculate Mother of God, the ever-virgin Mary, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heaven."


This rosary honors Mary's Assumption into heaven.
We begin with oval lentil beads in deep blue glass. The smoke-like appearance of these beads calls to mind the cloud that carried Our Lady up to heaven. Honoring Mary as the Queen of Heaven, we chose golden embossed metal beads for the Paters. Gold continues the theme as it spaces and reflects the blue glass. Italian imported Miraculous Medal center and gold and blue Basilica crucifix complete this limited edition rosary which measures 23”. 

Your Dormition Rosary will be shipped in a fabric pouch and gift box.

A Quote from Saint Bernard of Clairvaux on this Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

"In dangers, in doubts, in difficulties, think of Mary, call upon Mary. Let not her name depart from your lips, never suffer it to leave your heart. And that you may obtain the assistance of her prayer, neglect not to walk in her footsteps. With her for guide, you shall never go astray; while invoking her, you shall never lose heart; so long as she is in your mind, you are safe from deception; while she holds your hand, you cannot fall; under her protection you have nothing to fear; if she walks before you, you shall not grow weary; if she shows you favor, you shall reach the goal."



“Always stay close to this Heavenly Mother, because she is the sea to be crossed to reach the shores of Eternal Splendour.”
~ Saint Padre Pio ~
