This single decade rosary, in honor of the public apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima, uses the colors often associated with her image- red and white. The beads are white czech glass with garnet red czech glass for the decade accents and Our father beads. The centerpiece depicts Our Lady of Fatima and the crucifix is a Papal Crucifix- recalling St. John Paul II, who attributed a failed assassination attempt on his life to the intercession of Our Lady of Fatima. She herself had prophesied that a bishop in white would be shot and St. John Paul II was convinced that it referred to him.
At one point during the apparitions, Our Lady called herself "Our Lady of the Rosary" and asked that the rosary be said daily for the conversion of hearts.
When you order this rosary, choosing round or faceted czech glass or pearls will automatically choose the corresponding bead shape in garnet czech glass.
