- Portable and light
- Ideal for men and women
St. Anthony of Padua, a beloved Franciscan saint and Doctor of the Church, was an honored companion of St. Francis and renowned preacher. Olive wood beads with a natural color and swirling wood grain are a perfect choice for this rosary. The slim oval shape of the Hail Mary beads and the cross shape of the Our Father beads clearly mark off each decade, and call to mind the Franciscan order's simplicity and special devotion to Christ's passion and poverty. The silver centerpiece depicts St. Anthony holding the child Jesus, a mystical event witnessed by an Italian nobleman shortly before St. Anthony's death. The classic crucifix anchors this simple rosary with the image of Christ's perfect, sacrificial love. A meaningful gift for anyone who claims St. Anthony as their patron saint, has Portuguese or Italian roots, or a love for Franciscan spirituality.
St Anthony is venerated all over the world as the Patron Saint for lost articles, and is credited with many miracles involving lost people, lost things and even lost spiritual goods.
Note: Personalization, if added, will be engraved on the back of the crucifix.
