Description
 
The Mission Rosary links two major concerns of our church: prayer and apostolate. The rosary is a traditional form of prayer which combines remembrance, praise and petition. It remembers the events of Salvation History and is, in fact, the memorial of Christ's mission. The Hail Mary as essential part of the Rosary combines praise and intercession. It praises God for the wonderful things he has done for Mary and through her. But its second half also reminds us that we are in need of God's help and protection, which we seek with Mary as intercessor.

If the rosary already by itself points to apostolate and mission, this idea has been reinforced by Mary's urging to convert and evangelize expressed in numerous apparitions. The missionaries of the Society of the Divine Word consider themselves mandated to bring this message to the whole world, especially in view of promoting peace. One of the tools they use is the mission rosary. It encourages prayers for their mission. The colored beads symbolize the missionary efforts of the Society of the Divine Word (SVD) in each of the five continents. The beads of each decade of the rosary then has a distinct color:

  • Blue stands for Oceania.
  • Green stands for Africa.
  • White stands for Europe.
  • Red stands for the Americas (North, Central, and south.)
  • And Yellow stands for Asia.

    There are two different rosaries that are seen in the image.

    the rosary on the right is a 16", round wood beads, and made in Italy crucifix. (Cost is $15.95)

    The rosary on the left is a 17", oval beads with Quadruple links, and is also made in Italy. (Cost is 4.95)

    Please indicate in the Drop-Down menu which rosary you would like.
