Saint Kateri Tekakwitha is the first Native American to be beatified. She was born in 1656. As young girl, she contracted small pox and her face was terribly disfigured by the disease. She converted to Catholicism as a young woman and because of this she was shunned by her tribe. She suffered greatly because of her faith. She was devoted to the Eucharist and cared for the sick and elderly. Like St. Therese, she died at the tender age of 24. After she died, the terrible scars from the small pox disappeared leaving her skin smooth and unmarred. She was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 1980 and she will be canonized by Pope Benedict XVI on Oct 21, 2012. She is the patron of the environment and ecology.

The Avé beads in this rosary are striking 8mm Chinese Turquoise beads. These beads are natural turquoise from the Hubei mines in China. They have been stabilized to preserve the stone. The Pater beads are 10mm black onyx beads. They provide a beautiful contrast to the turquoise Ave beads. One note about the turquoise Ave beads. They are a beautiful, bright blue. I wasn't able to get the exact color in photos although it wasn't for lack of trying. :) The center honors St Kateri and the back is inscribed with her name. Both the center and the crucifix are silver colored metal. This is a new center, but it has a vintage look to it. I just love the way it feels in my hands. This is a substantial rosary which has a nice weight to it. It feels very nice in your hands. This rosary would make a wonderful gift or would be great to keep for yourself.

Specifics

This rosary is 32 1/4 inches long

ABOUT UNBREAKABLE ROSARIES: This rosary was constructed in such a manner as to make it unbreakable with normal wear and tear. The tarnish resistant, silver plated wire is coiled 2 1/2 times at either end of each bead. Furthermore, the interlocking loops prevent the type of breakage you find with most rosaries. It is the last rosary you will ever need to buy. You may want to buy another rosary...hopefully from me...but you won't ever need to buy another rosary. In fact, you will be able to hand it down to your children and they in turn will be able to hand it down to their children.
