Product DescriptionWhile you pray the rosary with this authentic olive wood finger rosary, see if you can image what it was like for Christ to pray amongst the olive trees. Each olive wood finger rosary is made in Bethlehem by Christian craftsmen from carefully pruned olive tree branches and carving them with simple tools. Therefore, no olive trees are harmed in this natural process that keeps the trees bearing fruit. A small "Certificate of Authenticity" is included with your purchase. This carving tradition dates back to the time of the Crusades when artists from Europe settled in Bethlehem.
The skilled "born and raised" Bethlehem craftsmen infuse spiritual significance into each olive wood finger rosary. The diameter of the ten round beads is approximately 1-1/2 inches with a 7/8 x 7/8 inch wood cross. The piece is held together by dark brown cording which contrast nicely with the color with the beautiful, lightweight wooden beads. This authentic olive wood finger rosary makes a meaningful gift for any Catholic who likes to pray the rosary anywhere, anytime. Keep a piece of Bethlehem in your pocket and Christ close at hand.
