Almighty ever-living God, whose will is to restore all things in your beloved Son, the King of the universe, grant, we pray, that the whole creation, set free from slavery, may render your majesty service and ceaselessly proclaim your praise. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
- Collect from the Feast of Christ the King
The title of "King of the Universe" inspired the design of this rosary. The all-natural gemstone beads (dumortierite and red jasper, 8mm) evoke swirling galaxies and billowing red giant stars. In a subtle twist from other gemstone rosaries crafted at Our Lady's Armory, this rosary features both silver and gold hardware, like the gold and silver keys given by Our Lord to Saint Peter. A stunning light blue enamel Miraculous Medal centerpiece is also used to remind us of Mary's place as Queen of Heaven - like the queen mother of the Davidic Kingdom found in the Old Testament.
Lord Jesus, King of the universe, have mercy on us!
Immaculate Mary, Queen of the universe, pray for us!
