Earlier this May, I entered the Etsy Rosary Guild Team’s monthly Rosary giveaway. This is one of my favorite giveaway opportunities because of my deep love of Rosaries. I have been entering for quite a while now. They get many, many entries for each giveaway, so I did not expect to win. (Still, it is fun to enter and hope to see your entry number as the winner).
This month’s giveaway featured a stunning handcrafted Rosary by Mary at Faithful Servant Arts shop on Etsy. Her product description of this piece is, “Silver toned rosary with Our Lady of Lourdes image centerpiece w/Sacred Heart on back. A Trinity Crucifix completes this beautiful rosary with clear faceted Ave beads, and ornate glass blue/green/aqua Pater beads with pewter bead caps, wire wrapped for stability.”

The Rosary honors Our Lady of Lourdes. I read The Miracle Detective, a book on Marian sightings because they fascinate me, and Lourdes is one of my favorite Marian sightings. Lourdes is in Southern France, near the grotto of Massabielle, where Bernadette Soubirous, a young peasant girl who had 18 visions of Mary.
I am so very excited to see this gorgeous Rosary in person when it arrives.
Speaking of giveaways, don't forget to enter my first blog giveaway that ends on June 1!
