Our Hope and Prayer
We aspire to bring God's peace, love and mercy to all we meet. We want to share with others what God has given to us.
We want to lead all souls to Christ through Mary for God's greatest glory and the salvation of souls:
Through providing a place that turns the darkness into light. A place that makes prayer simple, accessible and a part of our daily lives.
Through providing beautiful handmade Rosary Bracelet Wraps and other products that inspire people to see God in every part of their lives and pray the Rosary like never before.
Through helping women and men heal from pregnancy loss.
Through spreading the message that God and prayer can turn around all things (Romans 8:28).
Through spreading St. John Paul II's message that called us all to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet to promote life in it's fullness and defeat the culture of death.
Through listening to other people: We know that everyone has a story and that when we listen to those stories we can be healed.
Our hearts desire is to provide a place where people can renew their life: soul, body and mind. A place where life is lived to it's fullest, doing small things with great love (St Theresa of Calcutta-Mother Theresa). A place where people can return to the simple life. (More to come on that!)
We welcome you to our Katholic Beads & More family. A place for all of us to grow together in God's grand purpose for our lives, one bead, one day at a time. :)
I received the rosary and I am very pleased with it. What a beautiful piece!
"I love the Rosary bracelet I bought while at AbbeyFest! The color and quality are exquisite. It is especially important to me to support small, Catholic businesses and this husband and wife team is wonderful! Their deep personal faith and desire to share God's goodness through their work is evident."
Saint of the Month
Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, Lily of the Mohawks
Here are some brief facts about St. Kateri:
Her feast day is July 14 and she was the first Native American saint in the United States and Canada.
St. Kateri was born to an Algonquin mother and a Mohawk chief in the Mohawk village of Ossernenon in upstate New York .
Her name, Tekakwitha, means “she who bumps into things” which she probably acquired after she had contracted small pox as a young child. It left her face scarred and caused damage to her vision.
St. Kateri is honored in four national shrines in the United States: Shrine of Our Lady of Martyrs in Auriesville, New York; National Saint Kateri Tekakwitha Shrine in Fonda, New York; The National Shrine of the Cross in the Woods in Indian River, Michigan; and the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.
St. Kateri Tekakwitha died of illness on April 17, 1680 before she turned 24 and was buried in present day Quebec. It is said that after her death, the marks on her face from her smallpox faded away.
St. Kateri was canonized by Pope Benedict XVI on Oct. 21, 2012. She is the patroness of ecology and the environment, as well as people in exile and Native Americans. She is often called “Lily of the Mohawks.”
