Good Morning! Happy Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe!
I'm so pleased to introduce you to a new sponsor: Ruth Tucker of Loreto Rosaries. Ruth is a Catholic homeschooling mother of seven children. She started her rosary business a few years ago after she made her husband and children rosaries for Christmas. There is something special about praying the rosary with a beautiful set of beads and she wanted to share it with others. She chose the name Loreto Rosaries because she wants to eventually have a whole Litany of rosaries named after Our Lady.
Ruth's rosaries are exquisite. They are made of beautiful semi-precious gemstones and solid bronze pieces that handcast from antique vintage centers and crucifixes. Because they are strung on 49 strands of nylon-coated wire, they are extremely durable, while also stunningly beautiful. I have a similar rosary that's been from home to church to hospital to van to various soccer sites all over the country. Not only is it my most beautiful rosary, it's easily the most durable. The combination of strength and beauty makes rosaries like these genuine family heirlooms.
