Rosary beads have long been an essential part of our religious lives. Traditionally rosary beads are a circular string of beads worn as a necklace. But now there is a cool new way to wear rosary beads; a rosary bracelet!
A rosary bracelet is a bracelet with Saint Hubertu eleven beads (ten Hail Mary, one Our Father), used to count off the prayers of the rosary, as well as a crucifix and a Miraculous Medal. By wearing your rosary bracelet, not only are you able to keep your daily prayers, you are able to express your faith to the world!
The Miraculous Medal:
One of the most important parts of your St Hubert Pendant rosary bracelet is the Miraculous Medal. A stunning medal with the depiction of the Blessed Virgin, and the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, the Miraculous Medal has a beautiful and inspiring story behind it.
The Miraculous Medal was designed Saint Hubertu by the Blessed Virgin Herself! Over the course of three visions Our Lady manifested the Medal to Saint Catherine Laboure in the motherhouse of the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul and St. Louise de Marillac, in Paris. Catherine saw Our Lady standing on a globe, with dazzling rays of light streaming from her outstretched hands. Framing the figure was an inscription: O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. Then Mary spoke to Catherine: “Have a medal struck upon this model. Those who wear it will receive great graces.” The vision then seemed to turn to show the reverse of the Medal: the letter M surmounted by a cross with a bar at its base; below this monogram, the Sacred Heart of Jesus crowned with thorns, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary pierced with a sword.
Two years later, with the permission of the Church, the first Miraculous Medals were struck, and distributed throughout Paris. Soon word of the medals, and the blessings bestowed upon those who wore them, spread, and it wasn’t long before the Miraculous Medal was being distributed all around the world.
Customize your rosary bracelet:
A rosary bracelet is not only an object of faith, Saint Hubertu but also a cool fashion statement. Fads may come and go, but faith is always in style.
