NATIONAL LIFE ROSARY - ITALIAN WOOD BEADS
Contemplating the Beauty and Gift of Life
Premier Italian rosary maker Ghirelli™ in collaboration with Canadian sculptor, Timothy Schmalz, have designed this handsome National Life Rosary exclusively for EWTN. It consists of 9 x 6 mm oval Italian wood beads strung on brown nylon cord. A single solitary 6 mm round gold metal bead with diamond effects is positioned as the middle of the first three Hail Mary beads. This bead represents the gift of life, surrounded and protected by the mother & the father... Mary & Joseph...the family or domestic church (Lumen Gentium #11).
The unique centerpiece and Crucifix are both miniature representations of large sculptures created by figurative artist Timothy P. Schmalz and represent the reality that all life is sacred and begins at conception.
A portion of the artists' proceeds will be donated to the pro-life movement.
