Benedict's Beads was founded as Mediatrix Rosaries in 2010 by a Benedictine College student, Brad Geist, as a means of selling custom twine rosaries. As time went on, Brad discovered bead and chain ladder rosaries and switched his product line to exclusively offer them instead of twine rosaries. In 2013, Brad discerned a call to "come and see" and entered St. Benedict's Abbey in Atchison, KS, taking the Benedictine habit and the name Br. Benedict Mary. During the three years he spent discerning monastic life, Brad restarted Mediatrix Rosaries and re-christened it Benedict's Beads, earning money for St. Benedict's Abbey. After a time however, Brad discerned that his vocation was not at St. Benedict's Abbey and, receiving a dispensation from his simple vows, began life anew outside of the monastery, though never forgetting his time there or the formation he received. Benedict's Beads still offers fine handmade ladder rosaries in the spirit of St. Benedict- adopting the motto of the Benedictines of "Ora et labora" (Prayer and work) in its work of making exceptional rosaries for the greater glory of God and his Blessed Mother.
