About

The Story Behind Rosaries and Chaplets by Sue Anna Mary...

I was born in the South and was raised as a Baptist. In early adulthood, I converted to Catholicism and my faith has been such a blessing to me my entire life.

One night I attended a Catholic play entitled “Late Night Catechism” in which Sister Mary Ignatius said that every woman should have Mary in her name. So on that night, my husband renamed me “Sue Anna Mary”. Sometime after that night, I had a dream that I made 4 rosaries. I had no idea what the significance of the dream was but I felt that the Holy Spirit or maybe Mary, the Blessed Mother of Jesus was definitely calling me to make rosaries. I immediately began to surf the internet, learning the techniques for making rosaries, then began searching for rosary materials. I visited almost every bead shop in the city of Houston. Then off I went to the International Gem and Jewelry show in search of beads, jump rings, end caps, rondelles and other materials and tools to facilitate my rosary making.

I did extensive research to find just the right crucifixes and centers for the rosaries. Multiple pilgrimages to the Holy Land and to Mother Angelica’s EWTN and “The Shrine of The Most Blessed Sacrament” have resulted in inspirations for many of the beautiful rosary designs.

My husband Bob had a thought one night for a rosary design unlike any rosary he had ever seen. The next morning, he told me that I should make a “We Are One Body” rosary. He went on to explain that 1 Corinthians 12:12 says “For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ. Now, we as Christians are all different but yet part of one body – “Christ.” So, a “We are one Body” rosary would be comprised of 59 beads, each one different from all the others. I collected the 59 different beads, made the first “We are one Body” rosary and gave it to the pastor of my parish. Since then I have trademarked the title of my rosary.

Since then, I have been able to make many beautiful custom Catholic rosaries and chaplets. As my friends and neighbors saw them, they started purchasing them and asking me to make custom rosaries for them for personal use and as gifts. Eventually the requests for rosaries grew to the point that I decided to start a business.

I chose to pledge my business to the Lord and to the Blessed Mother Mary while promising to donate 10% of the proceeds from all rosary sales to the Franciscans that take care of holy sites in Jerusalem.

Thus was born “Rosaries and Chaplets by Sue Anna Mary”.
