Definition

The Catholic Dictionary defines the word solemnity as the highest liturgical rank of a feast in the ecclesiastical calendar.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches: Since the Virgin Mary's role in the mystery of Christ and the Spirit has been treated, it is fitting now to consider her place in the mystery of the Church. "The Virgin Mary . . . is acknowledged and honored as being truly the Mother of God and of the redeemer. . . . She is 'clearly the mother of the members of Christ' . . . since she has by her charity joined in bringing about the birth of believers in the Church, who are members of its head." "Mary, Mother of Christ, Mother of the Church."

Saint Louis de Montfort wrote, "The Son of God became man for our salvation but only in Mary and through Mary."

Saint Augustine wrote, "The world being unworthy to receive the son of God directly from the hands of the Father, he gave his son to Mary for the world to receive him from her."

On January 1, we celebrate the Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God, (God Bearer, Theotokos). January 1 is the day the Church celebrates this liturgical feast but we don’t celebrate Our Lady only on just one day of the year. Rather, we celebrate her every day. We give thanks for her every day. So, in a sense, every day is the Solemnity of Mary.

Our goal has always been to honor Mary with each rosary we create, but we have never created a rosary with the specific title “Solemnity of Mary.” This rosary is titled and dedicated to celebrate Our Lady as the Mother of God.

We chose yellow volcanic quartz for the Aves in this sacred strand. As you look closely at these gemstones, you can see that they are very clear in some spots and bear a slight cloudiness in others. They also have a texture which resemble cracks. Their color is gentle and they are soothing to the touch. The clarity symbolizes the joys Mary shared with her Son as well as her acceptance of God’s will without question. There were cloudy times such as the three days He was lost in the temple. (His mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you.” ~ Luke 2:48.) And, of course, the appearance of cracks in the beads symbolizes the cutting pain of her sorrows. Green in the color that represents life. For this reason, we chose green aventurine for the Paters. The handmade pictorial center is Mary holding her Son in the Eucharist. A large 2 ½” crucifix completes this very limited edition rosary which measures 22”.
