Introducing a creation by the Ghirelli designers, full of meaning, that strives to bring all hearts to love the Church and its great Patron Saint Joseph.

In these challenging times in which we are living what has been prophesied in the message of Fatima -- i.e. confusion, the destruction of the family -- is nearing fulfillment.

The passages from the Gospel of Matthew, which inspired this work, are a light in this darkness. We have the certainty that “hell will not prevail” (Mt. 16:18) and this is what we wish to represent with this Rosary



St. Joseph Universal Patron of the Church 

“Joseph did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took Mary as his wife” (Mt 1 :24). Inspired by the Gospel, the Fathers of the Church from the earliest centuries stressed that just as St. Joseph took loving care of Mary and gladly dedicated himself to Jesus

Christ’s upbringing, he likewise watches over and protects Christ’s Mystical Body, that is the Church, of which the Virgin Mary is the exemplar and model.

Apostolic exhortation “Redemptoris Custos” of the Supreme Pontiff St. John Paul II on the person and mission of Saint Joseph in the life of Christ and of the Church.


Beads: The 6mm white glass beads represent the purity of St. Joseph. The 6mm Italian olive wood beads represent St. Joseph's work as a carpenter, daily expression of fatherly love in the life of the Family of Nazareth. The Our Father beads, in 8mm marbled Bohemian glass, represent the fortitude of St. Joseph.

“Tu es Petrus, et super hanc petram aedificabo ecclesiam meam”

(Mt. 16:18)

“You are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church”

(Mt. 16:18)


Centerpiece: St. Michael places St. Peter’s Basilica, which represents the heart of the Church, under the protection of St. Joseph, in the background you find an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church.

“Non Praevalebunt” (Mt.16:18)
