I received the rosary a day before its expected arrival. It is of truly beautiful craftsmanship and it helps remind me of the goodness of Our Lord. The crucifix and the Miraculous Medal are beautifully done... it's all around just a lovely thing. Thank you for making these!
Very manly without being ostentatious or bulky, exactly what I was looking for!
Was a little skeptical about the paracord but still looks very traditional and classic while being able to stand up to abuse if my 4 & 6 year-olds get ahold of it!
Bought this as a gift for my Dad and he loved it! It is absolutely beautiful and I will definitely be purchasing another one in the future
The Catholic Woodworker has done a marvelous job on Evangelizing through beauty. I have been Catholic all of my life and this is the first time that I have bought and owned a sacramental that inspires me to pray and conform to the beauty, goodness, and truth of God.
I got introduced to The Catholic Woodworker in my time listening to Matt Fradd on his podcast (Pints with Aquinas) and I immediately fell in-love with the beauty and detail of the rosary that was built for him. So naturally, I wanted one just in time for October (the month of the Holy Rosary).
Review: 3-Way Pardon Rosary.
The Handmade Rosary detail is just simply beautiful, alluring, and personal to me.
A. The Bronze color 3-Way Pardon Crucifix, and Bronze Miraculous Medal Centerpiece (Italy). All my life I have never seen such flawless detail on a crucifix. From the lettered wordings to the detail of the etched characters and most particularly the corpus of Christ is noticeable of great craftsmanship.
B. 8mm Madre de Cacao Hail Mary Beads, and 10mm Marian Armour Our Father Beads (Philippines). As a Catholic-Filipino man, this gave out a personal touch. The first time I held the rosary after unboxing, it immediately felt home to me. The highly glossed, smooth, and very light beads was something I look forward to in praying with.
C. Micro Cord construction in Camo, and Rugged Bronze color Bead Caps.
Not only does this give out a durability feature in the built, but rather (to me in the spiritual sense) a tinge of battle against the enemy.
Thank you The Catholic Woodworker for providing me this avenue to experience the beauty, good, and truth in the rosaries you have made. For Madeline Pierce, for guiding and facilitating this parcel from the US to New Zealand. To God be the glory! 🙏🏼
