Rosaries and chaplets are called sacramentals of the Church. Sacramentals, like the sacraments, are outward, sacred signs of faith. Christ instituted the sacraments and the Church established the use of sacramentals. The rosary devotion includes meditations on the life of Christ while praying on rosary beads. The scapular symbolizes a special dedication to Mary, the Mother of God, and expresses a trust in her motherly protection and desire to imitate her commitment to Christ. Chaplets are like rosaries but each one expresses a different devotion, such as the St. Michael Chaplet or the Divine Mercy Chaplet, and has a different prayer structure than the traditional rosary. Here you will find a wide selection of rosaries, chaplets, and rosary accessories including books, carrying cases, audio/video, and more. These make great gift ideas for Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation, birthdays or any special occasion.
