 Hello JTM Rosary Crusaders,    

This is a lovely rosary! Many letters we have received from our missionaries through our PrayTheRosary Apostolate tell us the rosaries using the different color beads for each country are the favorites. Can you let us know what type and size bead, and the cord you have used for this rosary? They don't look like an ordinary pony bead, and the cord seems thicker than the usual size 9.

Thanks and God bless,

- Mary, Chris & Rachel

Greetings!

Saint of the Week: A Saint is often an ordinary person who has lived an extraordinary life of virtue and faith. As Catholics we should use these exemplars to inspire us in our daily lives.

 

St Walburga (710 - 779)

 

Saint Boniface issued a call for missionary help during his conversion of Germany. St Walburga was one on the nuns who answered the call. She had been well prepared for this work having spent 26 years in the Anglo - Saxon Monastery Wimbourne in Dorset. The monastery was famous for its austere discipline and holy atmosphere. Her father, a local king, had placed her there at the age of eleven while he traveled with her brothers to the Holy Land. Her mother was also the sister of Saint Boniface. She traveled with St. Lioba and other nuns. Her first miracle occurred on the way to Germany. Their ship encountered a severe storm. She prayed on the deck and the water became calm. When she arrived in Germany, she was met by her uncle, St. Boniface, and her brother, St. Willibald. He was the head of one of the monasteries established in Germany. She became known for her holiness and grace and the ability to heal through prayer. Her other brother St. Wunibald was the abbot of Heidenheim, a monastery of men and women. After his death she became its abbess. She wrote about St. Winibald's Life and travels in Palestine and is considered one of the earliest women writers in Germany and England. After her death, her relics produced a clear liquid oil that had miraculous healing qualities.

 

This week pray a Rosary in her honor, her feast day is February 25th.

Sorry for the Late Reply. Actually, this bead is made of plastic and I don't know what is the name of this bead. Maybe the bead is a faceted bead. The size of the bead is about 3 to 4 mm. I don't Know exactly  what is the size of the cord, but the twine no. is 210/15.
