A prayer from Thomas Merton's "Thoughts in Solitude":

“My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so.

But I believe that the desire to please you does, in fact, please you.

And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road, though I may know nothing about it.

Therefore will I trust you always, though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.” 

Thank you for shopping.

Beautiful and Strong Rosary

I am a person who prays the holy rosary every day, and it doesn't last long. This rosary has been the best rosary I have been able to buy so far.

CARMELA (Manteca, US)
Perfect gift.

Gave it as a gift to a cousin who said he prefers a black or a brown rosary. He got both with the new Tiger Eye Brown beads. He loves his Trappist Rosary. I added the 5-Way Scapular and Saint Benedict medals.

Great quality!

Great quality! I loved the hand made rosary complete with the beautiful crucifix! It would be nice if they were made a little smaller so that they were pocket sized. Either wise great durability!

Wm Z. (Grand Rapids, US)
Just a great tool for the soul

It is indeed beautiful to see, wonderful to touch, evocative for reflection; but the best part is that it brings you to focus without distraction upon praying. The physical matters are quickly left aside while praying. No distractions or worries about finding your way through the beads, or links breaking, or beads and cross smudging. It just gets out of the way, as any good tool gets out of the way while you use it as designed. And that's why I respect the design and workmanship so much. Thank you!

Rugged Rosaries are beautiful

The rugged rosary received is, as usual, well contructed. The only reason why I give this review a 4 (it was between 3 and 4) is due to the fact that I had intended to ask for a different crucifix but the note did not make it with my order. This having been said, a pewter or brown alternative crucifix is not readily available. To order, one must be extra careful to make sure the note follows the order. Then again, I've probably bought 50-60 rosaries in the past. So.... I'm happy in general.

My Rugged Rosary is Gorgeous

This is craftsmanship. My Rosary is beautiful and feels peaceful. I am happy with my Rosary. I collect Rosaries and religious icons and my Rugged Rosary is amongst the most beautiful ones I have ever come across. The price is worth it. Thank you for the care and artistry with which you made it.

This is my third purchase from Rugged Rosary

My first purchase was the Black Monk Rosary that is on my bed for prayer at bed time. The second is the Soldiers Rosary which is also now blessed and sits next to my Easy Chair it has a Saint Michael The Arch Angel medal affixed to it. My last purchase is the Trappist Rosary also blessed like the other two and will be my travel rosary. All three are beautiful and the large beads help with arthritic or old hands.

Great rosary but large

I wanted a paracord rosary because I get tired of the links on regular rosaries hooking into one another in your pocket, regardless of whether it is in a pouch or not. I’m in love with the crucifix on this rosary, but I wish I could have handled one prior to purchase. It is quite large, but I’m keeping it for hiking, backpacking and outdoor retreats. I have added a photo of a “normal” sized rosary alongside the rugged rosary. It is definitely NOT pocket sized! But for seated meditation and prayer, it is nearly perfect.
