This Rosary was inspired in 2016 by Fr. SJMC+ who authored the poem, The Monks: 

The Monks
The huge silver teapots
that adorn the refectory table
and the velvety jam
gingerly spread
over thick wedges.
Quaint English civility
that masks what happens beneath.

As these black clad brothers retire
there is no convivial conversation
over cigars and brandy by roaring fire,
they return to their work
their continued encounter
with His divine self.

The rain, in sheets, lashes the rooftops
and the wind, whipped up, attempts
to penetrate the panes in windows
which rattle in their frames
and give rise to the feeling
that this is a fortress
in the great battle beyond.

These men in humble habits
are warriors for a world  we rarely see
yet they dwell in for life.
Each worldly distraction,
each body afflicted with illness
or the fragility of mortality
is but a speck in the grand plan
of the eternity they bear witness to
and becomes nothing more
than fodder for their prayers
which continue to rise
like the obsidian winged companion
of their Holy founding father.

He who took the fire
which was kindled in the East
and built around it a school
that we may too learn
how to fan the embers
embedded in our souls
that they may burst into flame
for Him, who calls
each and every disciple
to be a monk in ordinary life
with singularity of focus
to prefer nothing
to the love of Christ.

Great attention to build quality

I have had my Rugged Rosaries "Black Monk Rosary" for a little over a month now and I absolutely love it. This is my first actual Rosary, aside from a simple knotted rope I had been using. The quality of the workmanship in this RR Rosary is extraordinary. Even though I know how the knots are tied, I cannot see the ends of the paracord at all, which shows a great attention to detail from the person who assembled it.

I also want to thank the people at RR for going above and beyond to ship my new Rosary in a special manner, as I have been in and out of hospitals, and I was at a hospital out of state, when it arrived safely to my P.O. Box address. That was very much appreciated.

Rugged Rosary

The rosary was bought for our adult son for Christmas . I haven’t seen it but he said it’s beautiful

Kimberly S. (Carol Stream, US)

My husband saw an ad for this piece on Facebook from a scam website. I went searching for the real deal. I bought it as a Christmas gift and it arrived Christmas Eve. He loved it. The quality is amazing and it's much larger than I anticipated but it was exactly what he wanted.

Thomas C. (Dearborn, US)

The Black Monk rosary is truly a guy’s rosary. It looks elegant and tough at the same time. It will take all the wear and tear that I am sure to give it.
