The Garnet Crystal Rosary is a designer rosary from one of three officially-licensed purveyors to the Vatican.
A Traditional Catholic Devotion
The Rosary, derived from the Latin word, rosarium, meaning "rose garden," is a popular and traditional Catholic devotion. Prayer beads are used to count the series of prayers that make up the rosary. The prayers consist of repeated sequences of the Lord's Prayer, followed by ten prayings of the Hail Mary, and a single praying of Gloria Patri, or "Glory Be to the Father." The Rosary is also sometimes accompanied by the Fatima Prayer. Each of these prayer sequences is known as a decade. The praying of each decade is accompanied by meditation on one of the "Mysteries of the Rosary," which recall the life of Jesus Christ.
