"May the Lord bless thee and keep thee;
may He show His face to thee and be merciful to thee.
May He turn His countenance to thee and give thee peace."

— Numbers 6: 24-26; the blessing given Friar Leo by Saint Francis of Assisi

An ideal little pocket chaplet.

The San Damiano crucifix is solid bronze, handcast from a vintage Italian original. Saint Francis of Assisi meditated upon a crucifix of this style. On the reverse of the crucifix, in Latin, are the words of the blessing Saint Francis gave to Friar Leo, and the Tau cross — the cross Saint Francis used as a signature. The crucifix is marked "Assisi."

The ten prayer beads are handcarved burnt horn, in varied shades of warm brown. They're shaped somewhat like soft-edged cubes. Among these are beads of solid brass, and matte glass.
