Why get a WWI Battle Beads Combat Rosary?

Pray the Holy Rosary for
Strength, Comfort, Peace, and Hope

The rosary is a powerful prayer that has been used for centuries to combat evil. The devil wants to destroy your faith with evil temptations. You do not have to look far to see the evil that lurks throughout the world, our communities, and all aspects of our lives. The prayers of the rosary provide the strength to combat evil. 

It is such a good prayer that in addition to being a powerful weapon against evil, it also offers comfort, peace, and hope for yourself, and anyone you pray for. It will help you slow down, and feel more at peace. And even when you don't know what to pray for, you can rest assured that you've reached out to the Blessed Mother who loves you and brings you closer to the Lord.

The Rosary is for Everyone

The rosary is mostly associated with the Catholic faith, but anyone can pray the rosary. At Rugged Rosaries, we estimate from our 10 years of customer service experience, that up to 20% of the WWI combat rosaries we make go to non-Catholics. The Blessed Mother will hear and welcome all who pray for her intercessions and grace. She has powerful love for all mankind.

The Best Spiritual Tool
for Praying the Rosary -
the WWI Battle Beads Combat Rosary

The combat style rosary design originated during the WWI era. The 100+ year old rosaries were made of sturdy brass pull chain and were given to soldiers, sailors, and flying aces of WWI to take with them to the battlefield.

The Rugged Rosaries WWI combat rosary design is the closest reproduction of the original WWI rosaries. They are handmade daily in the Rugged Rosaries' Texas studio from the highest quality brass pull chain, and Italian Medallions and Crucifixes. They are rugged, tangle free, and beautiful. The beads glide effortlessly through the fingers and feel powerful to hold. 

A good rosary is one that inspires you to pray it. The WWI Battle Beads combat rosary is one of those rosaries!
