Correspondence to Grace
A rosary inspired by the writing of Saint Josemaria Escriva


Correspondence to Grace One-of-a-Kind Rosary

In a homily, Saint Josemaria Escriva said, “Our mother is a model of correspondence to grace. If we contemplate her life, our Lord will give us the light we need to divinize our everyday existence. Throughout the year when we celebrate feasts dedicated to Mary and frequently on other days, we Christians can think of the Virgin. If we take advantage of these moments, trying to imagine how she would conduct herself in our circumstances, we will make steady progress. And in the end we will resemble her, as children come to look like their mother. In speaking of Our Lady, he also called her, “a privileged creature in the history of salvation and a reserved, quiet witness.” He concludes this homily by saying, “The blessed Virgin, our teacher in all we do, shows us here that obedience to God is not servile, and does not bypass our conscience. We should be inwardly moved to discover the “freedom of the children of God.”

These words so beautifully describe Mary that we thought they would be a perfect focus for a rosary; particularly a rosary asking for assistance in emulating Our Lady.

Mary is humble. Humility is a needed to get into heaven, and a virtue we all need to increase. Symbolizing Mary’s humility, we chose gentle pink glass Aves. The color is soft and unassuming. The beads are spaced with the same color pink crystal. Continuing the gentility of this rosary, the unique Paters are Rose Quartz. Italian imported figurative center and crucifix complete this one-of-a-kind rosary which measures 22”.

Catholic Rosary with Rose Quartz


Our mother is a model of correspondence to grace. If we contemplate her life, our Lord will give us the light we need to divinize our everyday existence. Throughout the year when we celebrate feasts dedicated to Mary and frequently on other days, we Christians can think of the Virgin. If we take advantage of these moments, trying to imagine how she would conduct herself in our circumstances, we will make steady progress. And in the end we will resemble her, as children come to look like their mother.

First, let us imitate her love. Charity cannot be content with just nice feelings; it must find its way into our conversations and, above all, into our deeds. The Virgin did not merely pronounce her fiat; in every moment she fulfilled that firm and irrevocable decision. So should we. When God’s love gets through to us and we come to know what he desires, we ought to commit ourselves to be faithful, loyal — and then be so in fact. Because “not everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father in heaven.”


We must imitate her natural and supernatural refinement. She is a privileged creature in the history of salvation, for in Mary “the Word became flesh and dwelled among us.” But she is a reserved, quiet witness. She never wished to be praised, for she never sought her own glory. Mary is present at the mysteries surrounding the infancy of her Son, but these are “normal” mysteries, so to speak. When the great miracles take place and the crowds acclaim them in amazement, she is nowhere to be found. In Jerusalem when Christ, riding a little donkey, is proclaimed king, we don’t catch a glimpse of Mary. But after all have fled, she reappears next to the cross. This way of acting bespeaks personal greatness and depth, the sanctity of her soul.

Following her example of obedience to God, we can learn to serve delicately without being slavish. In Mary we don’t find the slightest trace of the attitude of the foolish virgins, who obey, but thoughtlessly. Our Lady listens attentively to what God wants, ponders what she doesn’t fully understand and asks about what she doesn’t know. Then she gives herself completely to doing the divine will: “Behold the handmaid of the Lord, be it done unto me according to your word.” Isn’t that marvelous? The blessed Virgin, our teacher in all we do, shows us here that obedience to God is not servile, does not bypass our conscience. We should be inwardly moved to discover the “freedom of the children of God.” (Christ is Passing By, no. 173)





"May I give you some advice for you to put into practice daily? When your heart makes you feel those low cravings, say slowly to the Immaculate Virgin: Look on me with compassion. Don't abandon me. Don't abandon me, my Mother! - And recommend this prayer to others."
~ Saint Josemaria Escriva ~
