Rosaries and Prayer Beads in Odessa, TX
Rosaries and prayer beads are some of the most popular Christian gift items. All prayer beads have their origins in a rich, contemplative prayer tradition that Christians today find uplifting. There are three main types of prayer beads that most Christians use. The Marian or Catholic rosary is based on a tradition of using prayer and reflection of Scriptures that detail events in the lives of both Jesus and his mother. One variation of this rosary uses 10 beads and is based on the Irish penal chaplet. Anglican beads, based on the Orthodox design, utilize a diverse mix of prayers and come in many unique styles. We also offer a non-denominational prayer bead style that uses a variation on the 33-bead Orthodox design. All of our rosaries are gift quality and ideal for baptisms, first communions, confirmations, weddings, and ordinations.

The Irish Penal Rosary came into being in Ireland when it was considered a crime to attend Mass or pray the rosary. The traditional penal design features 10 “Hail Mary” beads with a ring at the end to prevent the rosary from being dropped. The Irish Penal Rosary features emerald green crystals with a silver Celtic crucifix. A gold-plated Irish Rosary features Our Lady Of Knock and the figures from the apparition that appeared at the Church of Saint John the Baptist in County Mayo, Ireland.
