This rosary has an interesting story. Because the Hail Mary beads were a Military blue I thought of a friend, recently retired from the military. As I made the rosary, I thought about what he might like and prayed for his intentions as he is in the discernment process of becoming a deacon. At Christmas time, I donated the rosary to a fund raiser for Mary's shelter. I was so surprised when he bought it. He said he has a lot of rosaries but he was drawn to the center on this rosary.
