Horn - 33 Bead

Horn - 33 Bead


“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

The San Damiano crucifix of this prayer rope is solid bronze, hand-cast from a vintage Italian original. Saint Francis meditated upon a crucifix of this style. On the reverse, in Latin, are the words of the blessing Saint Francis gave to Friar Leo, along with the Tau cross, which Saint Francis used as a signature.

The prayer beads are cubes of horn, in a beautiful mix of semi-translucent browns and beige.

The number of the beads — 33 — is symbolic of the Incarnation, and reflects the number of years of Jesus’ life.

The prayer beads are separated by smaller beads of olive matte glass, and brass. The connecting rings are bronze.
