OUR LADY OF KIBEHO
RD7S - DEVOTIONAL 7 SORROWS
  In 1240 the Servites were inspired by our Lady to pray seven sets of seven beads in honor of her 7 sorrows. In 1981 Our Lady of Kibeho requested children to pray this rosary. Why?

WHY A NEW 
INTEREST IN 7 SORROWS?
This devotion which brings to mind the 7 sorrows of Mary (see below)  has a long history beginning with the Servites (Servants of Mary) in Monte Senario Italy about the time the order was started (1233) on the feast of the Assumption.. These 7 professional men from Florence,( an important commercial center of Europe) were influenced by the penitential spirit common to the Brothers of Penance with whom they were in close contact. It is believed that Mary came to them and requested that they devote themselves to her service ...

~ ABOUT THE SERVITES ~
 THE SERVITES - 1240
... In 1240 they withdrew from the world to pray and serve the Lord, leading a life of penance, prayer and service to 'St Mary'. Because of so many visitors, they retreated again to Monte Senario nearby where Mary again visited the men. Here the Servites were formed. By 1244 under the direction of St Peter of Verona OP they began to wear a religious habit similar to the Dominicans and began to live under the rule of Saint Augustine.  The order took on new life and before the end of the 14c had over 100 convents throughout Europe, India and Crete. The Servites devoted their prayer to the rosary of the Seven Sorrows.
+
The chaplet of the 7 Sorrows of Mary is a collection of 7 sets of 7 beads.  We have carefully chosen beads to symbolize very special evemts in the lives of Mary and Jesus.  We hope these little symbols will enrich your prayer. Please read about them as captions on the images below.
+
Finding the medal of the seven sorrows was a great blessing for us as we had been looking for one that could be used on one of our chaplets that by nature are larger than most.  The reverse side of this beautiful medal is that of the Holy Face. The Rosary Workshop has designed 2 chaplets of the 7 Sorrows of the the Virgin with hopes one will find its way into your hands for prayer.

SYMBOLISM THROUGH COLOR
We believe the RosaryWorkshop.com is being directed to make our rosaries a more visual and symbolic journey of the dedication than it has in the past. You will not only see more of this direction used through color choices but in texture. When you see them, we hope you will be more visually in touch with the story.  And when you pray them we hope 2000 years of history will melt. Not only with Our Lady as she tells the story of her beloved son, but with the one to whom the rosary is dedicated or the scripture passage that inspired it. We hope and pray this will help open up a 4th and new dimension of spirituality in your heart.
