The Saint George Rosary is a deluxe rosary from one of three officially-licensed purveyors to the Vatican.
Saint George was, according to tradition, a Roman soldier and a priest in the Guard of Diocletian, who is venerated as a Christian martyr. In hagiography, Saint George is one of the most venerated saints in the Catholic, Anglican, Eastern Orthodox, and the Oriental Orthodox churches. He is immortalized in the tale of Saint George and the Dragon and is one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers. His memorial is celebrated on 23 April, and he is regarded as one of the most prominent military saints.
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.
