Product Description

The Franciscan Rosary of the Seven Joys of Mary rosary carries the most indulgences of any rosary. It's comprised of seven decades, corresponding to the seven joys of Mary.

The Franciscan Crown has variously been called the Franciscan Rosary, the Seraphic Rosary or the Rosary of the Seven Joys of Our Lady. The "Seven Joys" is a devotion that recalls seven joyful episodes in the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The practice originated among the Franciscans in early 15th-century Italy.

    It is customary, after the seventh mystery, to pray two Hail Marys to bring the total number to seventy-two in honor of the tradition that the Virgin lived for seventy-two years on earth.

    Prayer for the Pope--after the rosary we customarily pray an Our Father, a Hail Mary, and a Glory Be for the intentions of our Holy Father.
