This beautiful, wood-carved San Damiano rosary includes a very attractive, silver Franciscan crucifix. The reverse side bears the prayer of St Francis:
O master grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, To be understood, as to understand, To be loved, as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, It is in pardoning that we are pardoned. And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
The rosary centerpiece is a silver oxidized St. Francis/St. Clare(reverse side) photo and the decades are separated by beautiful images of Franciscan basilicas and shrines. The crucifix, medals and rosary center are imported from Italy. The wood-carved rosary measures 22 1/2" long and the beads are a 6 x 8 mm. Gift Box included.
My hermitage is somewhat Franciscan based, and I have a strong leaning to "all things San Damiano" when it comes to crucifixes, etc. Love the wood, on this Rosary, and I love the over all feel of it. And it has stood up to the trials and tribulations of heavy daily use and carry.
Very nice, well made I love it.
