- Italian St. Pio of Pietrelcina medal
- Prayer card
- Compact single decade rosary
Smaller than a full size rosary, this compact decade rosary features an Italian St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina medal, patron saint for those who are in need of physical or spiritual healing. 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. Padre Pio’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. Padre Pio.
Prayer Card Text:
Front: St. Pio of Pietrelcina, intercede for us who so greatly need healing of body, mind, and spirit.
Back: "Beloved St. Padre Pio, who shared in Christ’s suffering in a special way through the stigmata, you especially loved the sick and infirm. Through your intercession before the throne of God, may we be healed in body and soul, particularly in regards to (mention personal request). May your powerful example of docility and perseverance strengthen us to respond with holy confidence to life’s challenges. Help us to embrace both the joys and crosses Our Lord presents to us with loving trust. Just as those who came to you during your lifetime regained a sense of spiritual integrity, may you rekindle hope in our lives as well. Amen."
