  • Saint Francis de Sales, pray for us.

In 1916, the U.S. Government commissioned a rosary that could be issued to Christians serving in our armed forces. These "GI" rosaries were then carried by soldiers in World War I, and again in World War II.

Today, with interest in sacramentals for spiritual combat continuing to grow, replicas of this century-old rosary are providing the Faithful with a deeper connection to the strength and rugged determination of a bygone era, and most especially to the graces Our Lord wishes to bestow on us by means of His Mother's Immaculate Heart.

This WWI Battle Rosary by Our Lady's Armory is a stunning yet respectful homage to that original Government Issue service rosary, and bears both the Miraculous Medal and the Pardon Crucifix, carrying special indulgences attached by Pope Pius X.

    This rosary is extremely good quality! There is a weight to the rosary and it feels very sturdy. The crucifix and the medal in the middle are both very good quality and don't feel like they will bend if the rosary is carried in your pocket. I highly recommend these rosaries . Nick was very helpful and responsive when I asked him for a customization. Thank you very much for providing these rosaries!

    Absolutely perfect rosary for our son’s First Communion. We are a military family and love the history with this one. It’s a nice and sturdy rosary for an 8 year old. Shipped very quick!
