This sturdy and imposing rosary was inspired by the Latin motto, “Memento Mori,” or, “Remember Thy Death.” This is particularly popular within the Knights of Columbus and also in Benedictine spirituality, which led to the incorporation of the Saint Benedict medal in the center. The cross is a unique design known as the “Pardon Crucifix,” which carries an indulgence granted by Pope Saint Pius X in 1905.
This rosary would make a stunning gift for a Knight or a Benedictine in particular, or for anyone with a particular devotion to the Holy Souls in Purgatory (the traditional devotion for the month of November, beginning with All Saints and All Souls Days).
Please inquire if you are interested in a Knights of Columbus center.
In 2015, Nick purchased a ring to propose to his girlfriend, Elizabeth. But he knew a ring wasn’t enough–he had to have something even more personal, authentic, and significant than that. So, he decided to make her a rosary. She absolutely loved it–and they married on January 9th, 2016.
While planning out their wedding, they decided to continue making rosaries together as a way to further encourage prayer within their relationship. They see the Armory as an opportunity to reach even more people through prayer and to participate in their own way in the mission of winning hearts for Christ and His Church.
Over the last 3 years, Our Lady’s Armory has grown from a tiny selection of chain-link rosaries to over 4 dozen unique chain-link, paracord, and ball-chain rosaries, chainmail scrubbers, cufflinks, and pet collars, with even more new products planned for 2018. Please feel free to contact Nick if you’d like to talk about a new design; he’d love to help make your vision a reality! The Armory is built on the belief that beauty and integrity are two ways of coming to know God more intimately, so each item is built with pride and the hope that it will help you grow in your faith.
