Each bead of this beautiful Italian all-metal rosary is a St Benedict medal! Overall length of this larger rosary is approximately 24 inches from the center of the beads to the tip of the crucifix. Cast in metal and silver oxidized finish. Devotion to St Benedict is commonly practiced to keep evil at bay, and to help with temperance / moderation. Along with the Miraculous Medal and the scapular, the St Benedict medal is one of the most powerful sacramentals of the Church. Here it is, united with the power of the rosary!
I have seen a lot of beautiful Sacramentals at the many Catholic Shrines I have been blessed to visit, but nothing can even come close to the Italian Ghirelli craftsmanship, beauty and quality of materials of this Confraternity Locket Rosary.
The uniqueness of the locket, Our Lady of Intercessors logo, the Crucifix, the precision carving on the Our Father beads, Our Lady of the Cape figure and the smooth tender touch of the mother of pearl Hail Mary beads are outstanding. It feels like the love of Our Blessed Mother comes through each bead. As well the enclosed Relic card with a piece of the blue blessed cloth which touched Our Lady of the Cape original Statue and many holy relics along with the blessed rose piece and the St. Michael cave stone is a one of a kind Sacramental. A Rosary like no other. I am so blessed to have received one. - Linda Robillard

When you share with a soul the opportunity to enrol in the Confraternity, you are sharing the Gospel message.
FUN FACT: the pricing of the Official Confraternity Rosary is a combination of the two digits of the two prodigies at the Cape, namely, the 1879 miracle of the ice bridge and the 1888 miracle of the eyes and dedication of the shrine to Our Lady of the Rosary.
The blessing of your Confraternity Rosary can only be recited by a Dominican priest or authorized director of the Rosary Confraternity. Please feel free to copy it to bring with you to a local Dominican priest or director.
P: Our help is in the name of the Lord. All: Who made heaven and earth.
P: The Lord be with you. All: May He also be with you.
Let us pray. Almighty and merciful God, who, out of exceeding love for us, willed that your only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, come down from heaven to earth, take flesh at the angel's message in the sacred womb of Our Lady, the blessed Virgin Mary, submit to death on the cross, and rise gloriously from the dead on the third day, in order to snatch us from Satan's tyranny; we humbly beg you in your boundless goodness to bless and to hallow these rosaries, which your faithful Church has consecrated to the honor and praise of the Mother of your Son. Let them be endowed with such power of the Holy Spirit, that whoever carries one on his person or reverently keeps one in his home, or devoutly prays to you, while meditating on the divine mysteries, according to the rules of this holy society, may fully participate in all the graces, privileges, and indulgences which the Holy See has granted to this society. And may he always and everywhere in this life be shielded from all enemies, visible and invisible, and at his death deserve to be presented to you by the blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, laden with the merits of good works; through Christ our Lord.
The rosaries are sprinkled with holy water.
I received my beautiful confraternity rosary beads in the post on Friday afternoon and I am thrilled with them, it was so exciting opening them. They are unique, simply beautiful, with a lovely nod to Our Blessed Lady as she rests beneath the locket.(Florence)
Our Lady of the Cape Rosary
Custom made Rosaries featuring a centerpiece medal of the 1904 canonically crowned (by Pope St. Pius X) image of Our Lady of the Cape referred to as "Notre Dame du Cap."
The MDM Intercessor Family prays the St. Michael Chaplet on Tuesdays, the day the Church honours the angels. The New World Sword of St. Michael has become a reality with the first wave of pilgrims having made the "Sword." The St. Michael Chaplet is prayed at every pilgrimage stop imploring his help in distributing the graces obtained by Our Lady of the Cape, Queen of Intercessors. www.StMichaelSword.com
NOTE: For the initial 3 beads not associated with the Chaplet of St. Joseph, you may consider praying the Three Hail Marys devotion or simply recite three Hail Marys.
The Feasts of St. Joseph:
The primary feast of St. Joseph is March 19because it is believed that his death occurred on that date. This feast was fixed in the 15th century and was extended to the whole Church by Pope Gregory XV in 1621.
On the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, 1870, Pope Pius IX ordered that St. Joseph's feast day was to be a double of the first class. Holy Mother Church dedicates the entire month of March to St. Joseph, as well as the First Wednesdays.
May 1 was established as the Feast ofSt. Joseph the Workman by Pope Pius XII in 1955,chosen to coincide with Labor days in many nations. In addition there were two other feasts no longeron the official calendar.
The Eight Promises of St. Joseph
1. God will grant special graces to those that do not know me, to have a great devotion to me. 2. God will bless all who are married and the blessing in their family will be without limit. 3. Those married and without children will be blessed with offspring. 4. God will give special graces to be delivered from temptations and the attacks of the devil. 5. They shall have a good and happy death. 6. They shall overcome their trials and tribulations. 7. God shall grant them immediate help when they invoke my intercession, for the demons have extreme dread of the invocation of my name. 8. For all those who embrace a St. Joseph cenacle, they shall obtain a more fervent love for Jesus and a true devotion to Most Holy Mary.
St. Francis de Sales made St. Joseph the special Patron of the religious order he founded, the Order of the Visitation. In addition to naming at least one of his parishes in his honor, he set Joseph as the model of the interior life and contemplative prayer for his own spiritual daughters–and in particular for the novices, who were to look upon St. Joseph as their novice “master” and guide (A Manual of Practical Devotion to the Glorious Patriarch St. Joseph, translated by Fr. Patrignani, p. 78).
