- Popular paracord construction
- Striking onyx beads
- Features Pope Francis' pectoral cross
A rosary that makes a statement! The starkness of the onyx beads really highlights the Italian pectoral cross which is modeled after the one Pope Francis wears. A pectoral cross (from the Latin word pectoralis - "of the chest") is a cross which rests against the chest by a long cord or chain worn around the neck. This detailed cross, which is a favorite of Pope Francis, is actually the one he wore before he was ever elected pope. In his humility, he chose to keep his simple silver cross instead of changing to a golden, bejeweled version. At the top of the cross is an image of a dove, representing the Holy Spirit. Below is a great herd of sheep and one shepherd carrying a sheep upon his shoulders. The cross is inspired by the story of the Good Shepherd who finds the lost sheep in the Gospel of Luke (Luke 15:4-7). This sturdy rosary is made with paracord so it won't fall apart or get caught in your pocket. A memorable gift for priests, deacons, or anyone with an affinity for Pope Francis. Includes a prayer card featuring the 20 mysteries of the rosary and which days to pray them.
