When I see the austerity in Irish Penal Crucifixes, I can't help but be reminded of the hardships our Irish Catholic brethren endured during the penal era and of the incredible courage they had in practicing their faith and keeping it alive. It also reminds me to be grateful that I live in a country where people are free to worship according to the dictates of their hearts.

During the penal era of when the British occupied Ireland, it was illegal for Catholics to carry rosaries or other items of their faith. It was at this time that the penal rosary evolved. The finger ring was used to keep track of the decades. The cross evolved to have shortened horizontal arms which made it easier to hide in the hand or up a shirt sleeve. This particular crucifix is loaded with all the symbolism of the Crucifixion. The term "An Paidrin Beag" means the small rosary.

The Ave beads in this rosary are 8mm fancy agate beads. These beads are varying shades of green. Because no two of these beads are exactly alike, the beads in the rosary you purchase may not be exactly like the beads in the photo. Some of the beads have dimples and slight imperfections. This is to be expected with natural stone beads and it only adds to the charm of the rosary. The Pater bead is pewter with a Celtic Knot motif. The finger ring and the crucifix and finger ring are silver colored metal. The wire is German Silver wire which is lead free nickle silver.


Specifics

This rosary is 14 inches long
The crucifix is 2 1/8 inches high
This rosary is handmade and brand new


ABOUT UNBREAKABLE ROSARIES: Dainty and durable are adjectives that are seldom used to describe the same thing. However, this unbreakable rosary is both dainty and durable. The tarnish resistant, silver plated wire is coiled 2 1/2 times at either end of each bead. Because of the interlocking construction, this rosary is resistant to the kind of breakage that is found with traditionally made rosaries. This rosary is designed to last many years with normal wear and prayer.

GUARANTEE: I am so confident in this construction that I will fix it for free if it should break with normal wear and prayer. However, care should be taken with this chaplet and all my prayer beads because it is possible to chip or break the beads.
