This is a well made and a beautiful rosary. I carry with me in my purse along with my small prayer book.
I use the rosary ( and the prayers of the rosary ) to focus my mind, I'm not the most religious person on earth but reciting the prayers of the rosary has given me an amazing amount of happiness and peace of mind. The rosary itself is a quality product, fantastic craftmanship for a fair price!!! well worth the money.
The overall craftsmanship is done well. It is an attractive looking piece for how simple it is. It's a humble piece too; not all the glitz and gilded pieces that often accompany a <a class="autolink" href="http://www.catholiccompany.com/rosaries-scapulars-and-chaplets-c12/">rosary</a>. Its size is good for use in smaller spaces like a car or plane too. Best Uses: Daily devotions, Quick prayer, Use in smaller spaces; Cons: none; Pros: Attractive, Good material, Humble, Simple
The olive wood is lovely and a good reminder of the Holy Land. I have hung this <a class="autolink" href="http://www.catholiccompany.com/rosaries-scapulars-and-chaplets-c12/">rosary</a> in my car and at times say the rosary while driving. I love the thought of it coming from the place where Jesus, the Holy Family, and all of the disciples lived. Moreover, I am proud to be Catholic and am honored declare my faith by showing this beautiful rosary. Best Uses: In my car; Pros: Durable, Good Value, High Quality
