During the sacrament of Confirmation the grace that a Christian received at Baptism is completed and the person is called to become a soldier for Christ - taking His message to all people. The Holy Spirit comes down upon the person being Confirmed and gives the gifts of wisdom, understanding, knowledge, counsel, fortitude, piety, and fear of the Lord. These gifts are meant to strengthen us for the rest of our faith journey. Red is often the color associated with the Holy Spirit since at Pentecost the Holy Spirit descended on Mary and the Apostles as tongues of flames. Made to be a special commemoration of the day of Confirmation, this rosary features bright red Our Father beads and red enameled Holy Spirit dove centerpiece and crucifix from Italy. The light wood beads remind us to always keep ourselves close to the heart of Jesus on the cross. Special Confirmation prayer card included.

To see the world through your eyes.
