Single Decade Rosary - Connemara Marble
This product qualifies for free shipping.
A single decade Rosary made from green Connemara Marble beads.
These single decade sets are often called a Penal Rosary. They evolved from the Penal Times in Ireland when religion was suppressed and worship was forbidden. The single set was easier to conceal from the authorities and less likely to be discovered. This was a time when churches were destroyed and services were performed at "Mass Rocks" in the countryside. Priests ministered to their flocks at constant risk of death and were true Irish heroes.
This a is a great example of an old tradition and is carried today by people who remember the sacrifices made by so many to keep religion alive.
It is a meaningful link to our history and is a gift that will be treasured.
