As a Roman Catholic, I ordered these to add the Jesus Prayer to my daily devotions. To read that it's for an Anglican Rosary to Jesus is just absurd !! Rosaries traditionally are a Marian prayer based upon the Visitation. If the King that developed the Anglican Church didn't hate women so, you might be praying it in earnest & have no need to create a cheap replica of the original.
The set itself is nice enough and comes with its own pouch. I'll probably gift them to someone and order Jesus beads elsewhere.
I’m a recent Anglican convert from the Roman church and i absolutely love the look and feel of the rosewood beads. They feel solid and pleasing in my hand. Highly recommend these to anyone looking for a tasteful but plain rosary to guide their prayer.
Wood beads almost feel like velvet, to me. So glad you are pleased. Cynthia
The rosewood is lovely, and the piece looks like it should hold up well.
This being my first set of beads, I was a little surprised at how small they are. No fault of the maker, but for my hands I wish the beads were a little bit larger. I find myself struggling to keep track of the weeks beads by feel, in particular.
That said, I would recommend!
This rosewood and mineral rock cross is the one I am asked about most! These are the beads I give away on a regular basis. Pleasing to the eye and inspires deep prayer.
Wood beads are light and make a 'pliable' rosary. So glad you are pleased with the stone cross. My very first set of Anglican Prayer Beads - 16 years ago - was Hematite and Aventurine with a Jasper cross of some sort. Peace. Beadmaker
I love the look&feel of this instrument of prayer&praise. Thank you for your selection and prompt delivery...
The wood bead rosaries -- Rosewood, Tiger Ebony, and Bayong -- are light weight and the beads have an almost satiny feel to them. So glad you are pleased. Cynthia Grua/Beadmaker
