The Saint Patrick Rosary is a deluxe rosary from one of three officially-licensed purveyors to the Vatican.
Saint Patrick was a Romano-Briton and Christian missionary, who is the most generally recognized as the patron saint of Ireland. At an early age, he was captured from Britain by Irish raiders and taken as a slave to Ireland, where he lived for six years before escaping and returning to his family. After entering the Church, he returned to Ireland as an ordained bishop in the north and west of the island. His memorial is celebrated on March 17.
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.
