This is a very special, one of a kind rosary! We have used Raphael's portrait of Christ in making a hand soldered centerpiece. This very moving portrait provides subject for meditation while praying. The glass beads are very smooth to the touch, and antique style Our Father beads, with a different feel, signal the changing of mysteries. Saint John and the Blessed Mother are present at the crucifixion, which adds an extra image for meditation.
