Since finding rosary centerpieces for certain saints can be difficult, I decided to take the plunge this year and have a couple made.
The 1st is of St. Dymphna. I’ve had more people requesting this one lately and the only other option I could find for her was a more expensive American made model. Unfortunately for some, the cost for those is just too high. My center is Italian silver plate. It features a lovely image of the Virgin Mary on the front and a photo of St Dymphna on the back. St Dymphna is most widely know for her patronage for those suffering from nervous and mental afflictions, but there is actually a long list of other causes she represents including sleepwalking, epilepsy, insanity, family happiness, incest victims, loss of parents, martyrs, mental asylums, mental health caregivers, mental health professionals, mental hospitals, neurological disorders, possessed people, princesses, rape victims and runaways.
The 2nd new centerpiece is of Saint Agatha. Again, it’s a less expensive option for those who can’t afford to spend a lot on a center. Any of my rosaries made using this centerpiece will have 50% of the proceeds donated to research. This Italian silver plate center features the same rose as my Immaculate Heart center with a photo of St Agatha on the back (patron of breast cancer).
