THE COMBAT ROSARY BEADS - SILVER - 20"
AKA Service Rosary
Metallic pull chain with locking jump rings for toughness The Church Militant Combat Rosary is based upon the original pull chain rosary that was commissioned and procured by, believe it or not, the U.S. government and issued by the military, upon request, to soldiers serving in World War I. Some of these rosaries were also seen in WII. Veterans recognize them as "Service Rosaries." Made of strong metal pull chain, this rosary is meant to endure. Special locking jump rings add to this rosary`s toughness. This rosary`s endurance is meant to highlight the hopeful words of Psalm 136: "His love endures forever." This Combat Rosary`s use of the Pardon Crucifix, Miraculous Medal and St. Benedict Medal makes it a powerful spiritual assault weapon against evil forces attempting to separate us from the love of God and His will for our lives. Also, be sure to check out the Church Militant Books and Manuals for invaluable information and training in the fight against evil. Add to the cart or wish list above. Miraculous Medal centerpiece:
