This unique rosary is especially designed to pray for the holy souls in Purgatory, or for a particular soul.
This rosary has several indulgences attached to it, through the Scapular medal and the Pardon Crucifix, as well as the plenary indulgence granted to those who pray the rosary in a group, under the usual conditions.
The pendant of the rosary begins with a reminder to offer the three Hail, Marys for an increase in faith, hope, and love.
The decades of the Rosary for the Holy Souls begin with a black decade, symbolizing the darkness of sin. As you follow the rosary around, the beads lighten decade by decade. The final decade is clear, symbolizing the soul being freed from the temporal punishment due to sin, and its entrance into the beatific vision.
The materials used in each decade are different. All beads are 8mm in diameter. The black is glass pearl; the dark grey, hematite; the transitional grey, fiber optic glass; the white, glass pearl; and the clear, crystal. All metal parts are silver toned, lead-free pewter.
A pamphlet with special prayers for the Holy Souls is included.
