Benedict's Beads specializes in exceptional quality ladder rosaries that are made by Brad Geist, a former Benedictine monk. Brad received a solid Benedictine formation through his time at Benedictine College and St. Benedict's Abbey. This business, under the name Mediatrix Rosaries, began in 2010 while he was a student. When he joined the monastery in 2013, the business was put on hold as he went through the postulancy and novitiate. He began it anew as a way to earn money for the abbey and re-christened it Benedict's Beads after the founder of the order. The business grew to what it is today under the Benedictine values of prayer and work, as well as the unwavering devotion to the Blessed Virgin that the Benedictines are renowned for. Though he is no longer a monk, Brad still holds firmly to these values, performing his craft for the greater glory of God (RB 57:9).

Every rosary is handmade with careful consideration and quality and are built to last for many years. Each rosary comes with the Benedict’s Beads Guarantee, which can be found at Benedict’sBeads.com.
