Irish Penal Pocket Rosary
Our Irish Penal Pocket Rosary is a very convenient and easy to carry straight line single decade rosary. It is fashioned like the Penal Rosaries used in Ireland prior to the 1700s when the church was being persecuted. It was easily hidden up a sleeve or under garments.
To use this rosary, the ring is placed on the thumb and moved to each finger, and each time a decade of the rosary is prayed until completion of all 5 decades. The crucifix on this rosary is an Irish design full of symbolism on both the front and back such as the crown of thorns, the ladder used to remove Christ from the cross, the spear, the 5 wounds, and the chalice from the last supper.
We always use genuine military grade paracord, never gutted, and our exclusive beads. Each rosary is shipped with a drawstring carry pouch. Thank you for shopping.
