This attractive St. James rosary features smooth red and pearl Czech glass beads paired beautifully with a shell centerpiece that is adorned with a red enameled cross. This 'pilgrimage' rosary honors the Pilgrimage to the Shrine of Santiago de Compostela, also known as "The Way of St. James" (Camino de Santiago). The pilgrimage to the tomb of St. James has become one of the most famous pilgrimage sites in the Christian world. St. James the Greater was one of the twelve Apostles of Jesus. After the death of Jesus, St. James went to Spain to evangelize. Upon his return to Palestine he was beheaded by King Herod. His disciples recovered his body and translated it to Galicia in a miraculous boat guided by God. This rosary design features a shell which is symbolic of the cockleshells that are worn by the pilgrims. The cross is the sword of St. James. This powerful devotional is ideal for anyone who seeks the road to Christ as God is our guide, our protection, and our strength on the journey. Pray the rosary for peace.
Note: Personalization, if added, will be engraved on a silver charm attached to the rosary.
