The Light of Your Face
A Rosary in prayer for the departed
In the Text of the New English Roman Catholic Mass, if Second Eucharistic Prayer is offered for the dead, the Priest is given the option of reading this ending:
“Remember also our brothers and sisters
who have fallen asleep in the hope of the resurrection,
and all who have died in your mercy:
welcome them into the light of your face.
Have mercy on us all, we pray,
that with the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God,
with the blessed Apostles,
and all the Saints who have pleased you throughout the ages,
we may merit to be coheirs to eternal life,
and may praise and glorify you
through your Son, Jesus Christ.
Through him, and with him, and in him,
O God, almighty Father,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
all glory and honor is yours,
for ever and ever.”

In my mind’s eye, no words can fully capture this vision. For me, the words, “Welcome them into the light of Your face, compose a glorious visual. We live with the goal of dying in God’s Mercy and ultimately, coming to the Beatific Vision; “ The Light of His Face.” We pray for those who have gone before us and our prayer is exactly this; that their time in Purgatory will be just but brief and they will quickly come face to face with Our Father.
This rosary was created as a prayer for the souls of the departed, that they may quickly enter Heaven and be welcomed into the Light of His Face.
Opaque white glass Aves allow light to come through. This bead was chosen to symbolize the light of hope. Paters are genuine coin shaped shell. The natural dark shading, on the white shell, represents the wait in Purgatory. As you look at each Pater, you can clearly see that the darker shading is slight in comparison to the white. This, again, is symbolic of hope and trust that time in Purgatory will be short as our departed look forward to an Eternity in Heaven.
A deeply dimensional Marian center, with the Sacred Heart of Jesus on its reverse, and an ornate crucifix complete this limited edition rosary which measures 22 ½”.
