The Memento Mori Rosary is one of our more popular paracord rosaries made with stainless steel rosary beads for the hail mary beads, memento mori skull bead for a centerpiece (gold and sterling silver colored zinc alloy), beads shaped like sugar skulls for the Our fathers, and black paracord. If you prefer a color other than black please take a look at our other skull rosaries. This five decade Catholic rosary is among our more popular five decade rosaries because instead of a pardon crucifix for the holy cross on this rosary this vintage Catholic looking rosary with skull beads has a crown of thorns and nails crucifix. Human life is a precious gift from God, that is why this style of rosary is popular among the knights of columbus who have a deep devotion to safeguarding the dignity of human life. Meditating on death - that we are dust, and to dust we shall return - is a good and holy thing. St Paul even says, "For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain" (Philippians 1:21). Whether you are Saint Francis, Pope Francis, just an ordinary person, or a monk, rosaries are a very important devotional practice to grow in love of Christ through his mother. This memento mori skull rosary will help you to remember your death while you work your way "in fear and trembling" to eternal life. Remembering death also helps us to remember the holy souls in purgatory who need our prayer as they purge themselves of the final attachment to sin so as to enter heaven. This rosary with skull rosary chaplet is not a howlite skull, bone skull bead, or wooden beaded rosary. It does not have a st. Benedict medal, Saint Michael medal, Sacred Heart medal or a St. Francis medal. These memento mori rosary beads are not a rosary bracelet, or an antique rosary necklace. There are no black beads as part of this offering and it is not a product for Notre Dame unless you mean Mother Mary and not the cathedral or the University. This Memento Mori bone rosary is also not made of bone and it is not a replica of a WWI battle prayer beaded rosary. I want to be clear about what it is and isn't because the way people search for this product sometimes seems like they have it confused with other offerings. We do have other offering in our store please visit thesoicalcatholic.com to see them! In the site links there you can also see our blog content and an image gallery.

The item apparently is not meant to be worn/super small and only for looks? This is not what I wanted to receive. Last order for me!
