Beneath thy Protection rosary is for a man or woman who want a simple yet stunning rosary, with great strength. It has a lovely miraculous medal for it's rosary centre and a crucifix dedicated to the Imamaculate Conception, with Our Lady's image lightly marked on the back. The The Pater conveys a feeling of nobility, the Aves have a light but earthy colour with very fine fossilised markings. The rosary has been named in honour of the title of the oldest known prayer to Our Lady, the Sum Tuum Praesidium, which translates to English as "Beneath Thy Protection" ~ it is one of my favourite chants when singing in choir. The colour of the Aves make me think of Our Lady's mantle which we seek protection under.

"Sub tuum praesidium confugimus, Sancta Dei Genetrix. Nostras deprecationes ne despicias in necessitatibus nostris, sed a periculis cunctis libera nos semper, Virgo gloriosa et benedicta"

"Under thy protection we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God; despise not our petitions in our needs, but from all dangers deliver us always, Virgin Glorious and Blessed."
