- Handcrafted Jasper beads
- St. Maximilian Kolbe prayer card included
- Single decade rosary - great for on-the-go
Smaller than a full size rosary, this compact decade rosary features an Italian St. Maximilian Kolbe medal, patron saint for those who are struggling with addictions. As your fingers move around the mysteries you will feel the cool, soothing Jasper beads. This ancient stone is listed in the Old Testament on the “Breastplate of Judgment” (Exodus 28:17-21) and is also listed as one of the gems found in the foundations of the New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:19-20 and Isaiah 54:11). A matching prayer card includes a beautiful, moving prayer imploring St. Maximilian Kolbe’s intercession. This little decade rosary can be easily slipped into your pocket and is a great companion to take with you on-the-go as a reminder of the patronage and intercession of St. Maximilian Kolbe.
Prayer Card Text -
Front: St. Maximilian, intercede for us, that those struggling with addiction may break the chains that bind them.
Back: "St. Maximilian Kolbe, turn your gaze on us who honor you and have recourse to you. Radiating with the light of Mary Immaculate, you brought countless souls to holiness and introduced them to faithful endeavors for the victory of good over evil. Your life of love and service was cut short by a lethal injection, given in a prison cell in Auschwitz. Pray that God will help break the chains of addiction that hold me bound. May His grace strengthen me in resisting this dependence that prevents me from living a life of health and happiness. Guide me to the resources I need to find healing and wholeness. Amen."
