Rosary in 6 mm glass beads.
The cross is an original design with the representation of the cathedral in the centre.
The centrepiece represents the holy Crown of Thorns with the Cathedral
of Notre-Dame de Paris at its centre. Silver finish.
The rosary is a prayer item resembling a necklace of beads comprising
five groups of ten beads known as decades.
Each group is followed by a separate bead.
A cross and five beads which run from the necklace part
to the centrepiece bearing an effigy of the Holy Virgin,
a saint or a Christian symbol.
The recitation starts by the sign of the cross, one "I believe in God",
one "Our Father", three "Hail Marys" and
one "Glory to the Father".
This is then followed by recitation of one "Our Father",
ten "Hail Marys" and one "Glory to the Father".
Recitation of the decades is combined with contemplation of the joyful,
painful and glorious mysteries of the life of Christ.
During the Year of the Rosary, Pope Jean-Paul II proposed
the addition of new luminous mysteries.
