I just added a new chaplet to my bevy of rosaries and chaplets, and thought I'd share.
Cam over at Full of Grace Creations on etsy made me a chaplet dedicated to Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha, the only Native American ever beatified, at my request. I detailed Blessed Kateri's importance to my family's faith life about a month ago, and read up on her chaplet.
It's a set of 24 beads, one devoted to each year of her life. Each set of 8 has different significance. On the 8 brown beads you recite 8 Our Fathers; on the 8 red beads you recite Hail Mary's; and on the 8 crystal beads you recite Glory Be's. The colors represent earth, blood/love, and water, respectively. It's officially called a "Kateri Indian Rosary" although I don't totally love that name. :)
Here's my chaplet:
So pretty. :) I plan to ask Blessed Kateri's intercession on any number of intentions.
I love it :)ReplyDelete
I saw it in Cam's shop and wondered if the Tiffany it was reserved for was you.
I also love Blessed Kateri. They had a statue of her at the Cathedral I used to attend. They have a large Native American population there.
Doesn't Cam just have the best stuff?ReplyDelete
