Advent is a time to reflect upon the coming of Christ at Christmas and
to remind us of our eager longing for the Second Coming of Christ. The
Advent Rosary is meant to help in fostering this longing. Faceted
Amethyst purple czech glass beads with Faced Rose czech glass beads call
to mind the wreath and liturgical colors during the time of Advent. The
rosary incorporates an Our Lady of Guadalupe/Sacred Heart centerpiece
since Our Lady of Guadalupe’s feast day falls during the heart of the
Advent season. It is equally fitting, since in the image of Our Lady of
Guadalupe, Mary is depicted as with child- an important element of
meditation during the Advent season. The rosary also has a Flared
Crucifix, which fits the rosary well and gives it an added elegance.
This rosary, however, can be used year round. Particularly when praying
the Joyful Mysteries, the colors can invoke the special longing for the
coming of Christ that Advent always brings.
