SEEN IN AN 
ANTIQUE SHOP IN MUNICH
Because we believe our visitors are unique amongst the internet family, we offer some new designs that were inspired by an item seen in an Antique Shop in Munich a few years ago. It was well over 100 years old. It was actually a large, 3 inch round crystal and gold reliquary box containing relics of about 10 saints.
+
RARE LOOK INTO HISTORY
This was not so unusual but what was different, was the fact that from it, hung a series of old beads.  It was a chaplet! Or had been before some of the beads broke and fell away in time.  A chaplet where prayers were offered, asking for the intercession of the saints whose relics were contained. Not one, but many! It was unusually large yet beautiful. This wonderful discovery has inspired the following:

MEDALS BY EGINO WEINERT
The powerful male saints medals we have used below were designed by world famous EGINO WEINERT of Germany - a favorite of Pope John Paul II, and an artist to the Vatican. The medals are about 2 inches square and cast in solid bronze, only.  We have chosen very special beads to symbolize the lives of each saint. These 'Niners' are wonderful to keep on your coffee table, prayer table or home altar and are very simple yet powerful to pray.  There is something embracing about holding these medals in one hand and the beads in the other.  And when not in use - sitting on the table - they are visually involving, captivating and evangelizing - to others in the room.

~ OUR GUARDIAN ANGEL  II ~
eternal now - Feast Day: 2 October
OUR GUARDIAN ANGEL - C9G.51341
NEW JERUSALEM - The Encyclopedia of the Catholic Church states it clearly, "That every individual soul has a guardian angel has never been defined by the Church, and is, consequently, not an article of faith; but it is the "mind of the Church", as St. Jerome expressed it: "how great the dignity of the soul, since each one has from his birth an angel commissioned to guard it." Exodus 32:34, God says to Moses: "my angel shall go before thee." & Psalm 90:11: "For he hath given his angels charge over thee; to keep thee in all thy ways."  6 inches long.

ANTIQUE BEADS - Varigated and matted cream to white, somewhat faceted. Each capped with antiqued filigrees - vintage/old - Germany (Gablonz) from the 1940's. 8 inches long - (Bronze only)

~ PRAYERS ~
So these little chaplets with 3 sets of 3 beads have been around a long time, they have a history.  Its more than just a tradition, as it appears, they also carried certain indulgences.   A perfect prayer form to renew in a busy day.
+
On each set of 3 beads - one each:
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be
+
On the medal:
ask for the intercession of this particular saint. Some people use this as a nine day novena by adding their petition at this time.




~ HISTORY of  'NINERS' ~
... THE RACCOLTA - a collection ...
More information on the traditional 'niner' chaplet may be found in an old book called THE RACCOLTA (A Collection). The Raccolta was first published in Rome by Telesforo Galli in 1807. This would put this practice of the 'niners' into at least the latter part of the 18c, and more likely the devotion was practiced, established and approved of long before it was written about. THE RACCOLTA  has been re published many times over the years but more recently by Benzeger Brothers in 1944 through 1957.  It contains prayers, devotions, novenas, pius practices etc and explains the indulgences that were attached and conditions needed to gain them at that time in history.  All the indulgences contained in THE RACCOLTA are/were applicable to the souls in purgatory. The book is still available through most Catholic Book Stores. I believe the St Jude Chaplet with its 9 beads is a good expample of this history.

YANKEE LADY ADDS:
Our friend Barbara Spears (Yankee Lady) listed 15 'NINER' chaplets with this configuration of beads and they were mostly for specific saints.  One was for the Consecration to the Holy Family, another for the dying (St Joseph), and another for the Acts of Adoration. 
+
She also adds on her site" Many convents and monasteries created "niner" chaplets which they sold as a means for generating income. Niner chaplets were created for virtually any saint. Some niner chaplets were made as a straight line with 3 sets of 3 beads, a crucifix at one end and the saint's medal at the other end. Other niner chaplets were made as closed loops, with 3 sets of 3 beads and the saint's medal. 
+
Regardless of the configuration, you invoke the saint's aid on the medal, say 3 Our Father, 3 Hail mary, and 3 Glory Be prayers on the beads, and say the Apostles Creed on the Crucifix (if there is one)."

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14:26-28
