The rosary is a devotion to Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ and the pure and absolute symbol of life. The rosary is typically made of wood, the construct itself symbolic of Christ’s death on the wooden cross. If the rosary is “full size”, this is also meant to represent the full scripture of the Psalms, with the crucifix pendant being the resulting prayer and meditation of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ as understood by His mother. All of this combined is meant to aid in prayer, to further your own personal relationship with Christ, and your faith, and a tool to simplify clearing your mind for a deeper reflection. A permanent marking of the rosary guarantees a prayer guide ever at the ready.
