Depicting the Seven Sorrows of Mary
The Rosary of the Seven Sorrows is a rosary consisting of a ring of seven groups of seven beads separated by a small medal depicting one of the sorrows of Mary, or a single bead. A further series of three beads and a medal are also attached (before the first “sorrow”) and these are dedicated to prayer in honor of Mary’s Tears. We make three types of these rosaries: mahogany wooden beads on cord with medals depicting the sorrow, mahogany wooden beads on cord with a large bead indicating the sorrow, and Job’s tears beads on wire with medals depicting the sorrow.

Depicting the Seven Joys of Mary
The Franciscan Crown rosary tradition began with an apparition of Our Lady to a young Franciscan novice. She asked him to “weave for me a crown from the flowers of your prayers that will always remain fresh” by reciting the seven joys that she experienced during her life. She said to him “If you recite these prayers as I have directed, rest assured, dear son, you will weave for me a most beautiful and aceptable crown and will merit innumerable graces.”
The Franciscan Crown is a rosary of seven decades; seven Our Fathers and 70 Hail Marys. Each decade is for a different joy of our Lady. At the end there are two beads for two Hail Marys to complete the 72 years of her life.
This rosary is available on brown cord with olive wood beads and is accompanied by an insert explaining the tradition of the Franciscan Crown and how to pray it.
As a child, St. Therese was given a string of beads with which to count her sacrifices and other acts of love done for God. In that way she was able to advance in perfection daily by conscious effort to eliminate defects and to acquire virtues. Sacrifice beads mimic St. Therese’s little string. Simply pull a bead each time you make an act of love or act of sacrifice for love of God! The decade of beads can also be used as a one decade rosary. The beads have a medal of St. Therese on one end and a crucifix on the other. They come with plastic beads or wooden beads
The plastic sacrifice beads come in a variety of colors as pictured on the right: from left to right; Black, royal blue, red, brown, and amber. Crosses vary. Pictured above: red plastic sacrifice beads.
