This special Year of Faith rosary holder features the famous Renaissance art piece entitled "The Incredulity of Saint Thomas" by artist Caravaggio (1600-1601). This art piece depicts the scene where "Doubting Thomas" had to place his fingers into the side of the Resurrected Christ before he would believe in His resurrection. This picture sets the backdrop for the reproduction of the Holy Door of the Basilica of Saint Peter in the Vatican, where its opening symbolizes the "Door of Faith" introducing everyone to a life in communion with God. Along the base are carved the words, "Annus Fidei" which means "Year of Faith". Makes a great gift idea for someone receiving a sacrament during the Year of Faith, which runs from October 2012 to November 2013.
