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."
October saint - Saint Francis of Assisi
Saint Francis was born in the 12th century in Italy and died on October 3rd, 1226. His feast day is celebrated on October 4th.
Francis loved to praise God and to sing in French. There are many stories of miracles during and after his life through his intercession. There is the famous story of St. Francis and the wolf of Gubbio when he helped that town and the wolf to be "friends" and no longer terrified by the wolf and St. Francis preaching to the birds, ... To the present day, one can always see a live dove resting on the statue of St. Francis in his Basilica in Assisi.
St. Francis' favorite place was the Portiuncula, now located in the Basilica of St Mary of the Angels. It was his "little portion" like he wished to be for Our Lord. He used to say that if his friars were forced to leave there by the door, to go back in through the windows, but never to leave that grace-filled place where the angels constantly come and go.
Our favorite quote of St. Francis is to "preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary, use words".
Pace e bene!
