The word Rosary means "Crown of Roses" and roses have been traditionally associated with the Blessed Virgin Mary. Our Lady has revealed to several people that each time they say a Hail Mary, they are giving her a beautiful rose and that each complete Rosary makes her a crown of roses. The rose is the queen of all flowers. That makes the Rosary the "Rose of all Devotions," and therefore, the most important devotion.
This rose scented rosary is a great way to encourage Catholics to pray the rosary daily - a traditional reminder of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Each rosary is durably crafted of wood beads, a Madonna centerpiece and a wood crucifix. It also comes with a small rosebud case for storage and carrying. Makes a great gift for anyone with a special Marian devotion.
