BEST SELLING OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY PENDANT
What devotion is more Catholic than the rosary? The first "rosary" of sorts consisted of 150 Our Fathers to mirror the 150 Psalms. Next, the devotion of saying 150 Hail Marys developed to accompany the 150 Our Fathers. Soon, meditations on the mysteries of Christ's life were attached to the devotion. In the 16th century was the rosary divided into the 15 mysteries (Joyful, Sorrowful, and Glorious) we know now, and the rosary further developed with the addition of the Luminous mysteries by Pope St. John Paul II in 2002.
It is Our Lady of the Rosary who received the credit for the victory of a Christian navy over the Turks in the epic Battle of Lepanto in 1571. This victory secured Europe as a foothold of Christendom and prevented Islam from seizing the continent.
If you or a loved one faithfully clutches the rosary daily, a medal bearing the tender image of Our Lady of the Rosary is a delightful reminder of that most powerful spiritual weapon in our daily battles.
The feast day of Our Lady of the Rosary is October 7.
