This rosary is like nothing else in our shop. With nickel-plated brass beads manufactured right here in the USA, then hand-assembled and joined with sturdy split rings to Italian oxidized-silver Miraculous Medals and Pardon Crucifixes, it truly is a unique and durable rosary, faithfully modeled after the rosaries commissioned by the US Government in 1916. Order your Battle Rosary today. Because nothing says Padre Pio’s famous quote, “the rosary is the weapon for these times,” like the rosary issued to U.S. servicemen during both World Wars. **CUSTOMIZATION AVAILABLE. Please ask us about other centers and crucifixes we can build into this rosary.
