WHO IS
JORGE CARDINAL BERGOGLIO?
 Born Jorge Mario Bergoglio on 17 December 1936 of Italian immigrant parents.  A native of Buenos Aires, Argentina, ordained as a priest in 1969.   As a Jesuit, he served as head of the Society of Jesus in Argentina from 1973 to 1979. In 1998 he became the Archbishop of Buenos Aires, and in 2001 a cardinal. 
+
Following the resignation of his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, on 28 February 2013, the conclave elected Bergoglio, who chose the papal name Francis in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi. Besides being the first pope to choose the name Francis, he is also the first Jesuit, the first to come from the Southern Hemisphere and the first to come from the Americas.

THE HOLY FATHER, POPE FRANCIS
 (for more information, please click icon)

JESUIT, BISHOP, CARDINAL TO POPE
WHO TAKES ON THE CLOAK OF FRANCIS
We are learning more and more about this gentle man who has taken on the spiritual cloak of the peacemaker, Francis of Assisi.  A Pope whose Coat of Arms reflects his devotions and life. 
   +
PAPAL COAT of ARMS
 his chosen symbols reflect his 
 life and devotions, inspiring the 
rosaries below.
+
READING THE SYMBOLISM
 +
THE BLUE SHIELD
The blue shield sits on top of the crossed papal keys of Peter and below the Tiara of the Pope. The center burst of gold with 'IHS" is the symbol of the Jesuit order. (IHS - first three letters of the Greek name of Jesus, iota-eta-sigma.)   IHS is also featured in the Jesuit crest.
+
Below and to the left is the star, heraldic symbol for Our Lady and now, Star of the New Evangelization.  On the right is a cluster of the herb spikenard, a sign of humility and symbolizing Joseph, protector of the Word.
+
THE MOTTO
"MISERANDO ATQUE ELIGRNDO"
Below the coat of arms, it reads: "Miserando Atque Eligrndo". (meaning 'lowly but chosen';  literally in Latin 'by having mercy, by choosing him'.
+
Along with the basic symbols, the motto is one the Pope had already chosen as Bishop. The words are taken from the homilies of the Venerable Bede on Saint Matthew's Gospel relating to his vocation: "Jesus saw the tax collector and by having mercy chose him as an Apostle saying to him : Follow me." (see Vatican Radio)
+
POPE FRANCIS REMINDS US:
 We are afraid of God's surprises; we are afraid of God's surprises! He always surprises us! 
+
We must not be afraid of goodness or even tenderness!
+
You all know that the duty of the Conclave was to give a bishop to Rome. It seems that my brother Cardinals have come almost to the ends of the Earth to get him... but here we are. 
+
MOST RESPECTED
 Whenever human beings fail to live up to this responsibility, whenever we fail to care for creation and for our brothers and sisters, the way is opened to destruction and hearts are hardened.
AND INFLUENTIAL

CONFIDANT OF JPII
Cardinal Bergoglio was "a major figure on the Vatican stage for a quarter of a century " as one of the most respected, influential and controversial members of the College of Cardinals";  he had an influence "second to none when it came to setting church priorities and directions" as one of Pope John Paul II's closest confidants.
+
A FAVORITE DEVOTION
OUR LADY UNDOER OF KNOTS
While a student, the Holy Father visited the church of St. Peter Perlach in Augsburg Germany where he saw the now famous paining of Our Lady, Udoer of Knots.  He was so touched by the inage and tradition he brought it back to Argentina where it became a favorite of the people. And now we see this powerful devotion growing throughout the world.
+
   KNOT A STRING ON YOUR ROSARY
Read more below but do something special to remind you to ask her for special needs.  Tie a cord, string or a ribbon around your personal rosary as a reminder of this ancient devotion, Mary, undoer of knots. Who tied the first knot?  Eve! think about it!

WE ARE DEEPLY INSPIRED.  MAKING 
ROSARIES IS OUR LANGUAGE THAT SAYS 'THANK YOU!'
The rosaries below were inspired by the life and devotions of our new Holy Father, Pope Francis. They are in response to how the guild feels about our 266th Pope. Designing these rosaries in his honor and to give the Greter Gory to God is simply our way of sayingmg 'Thank You'. Please enjoy but remember to pray your personal rosary daily for peace in the hearts of all.

 PATERS CAPTURE 
A LIVING RAINBOW of HOPE
 (click icon for larger image)
+
AVES: Each matte Ave bead was made many, many years ago in Gablonz. the white symbolizes the garment of Pope Francis, translucent as allows the work of God show through to him. PATERS:  hand formed (lamp work) 'Basha' beads. It is impossible to fully capture their inner beauty. 
+
Holding the rosary in your hand under natural light is the only true way to understand its beauty.   The light plays differently in the bead, as it moves and picks up the surrounding light.   The Rainbow offers the new hope he brings to the catholic Church and - the world.

BECAUSE OF HIS NAME
  A powerful cross, the San Damiano Cross is used on this rosary, remembering this is the cross that St Francis of Assisi chose as his own after hearing the Lord speak to him, asking him to Rebuild his church as it is in ruins.  One look around us today helps us to understand why now he is - Called by God. 
+
SAN DAMIANO CROSS
Francis, 'rebuild my church - it is in ruins'
  (original in Assisi Italy)

THE BLESSING 1224
The back carries St Francis' blessing for brother Leo: 
 "May the Lord  bless you and keep you.  May He show His face to you and be merciful to you.  May He turn His countenance to you and give you peace. The Lord bless you, Brother Leo."

~  UNDOER of KNOTS  ROSARY ~
A PIECE of HISTORY
THE KNOT OF EVE'S DISOBEDIENCE
 Dating back to the teachings of St Paul we learn about the New Adam and the New Eve.  And St Irenaeus (120-200) continued this word of mouth, an honored tradition by noting, "And so the knot of Eve's disobedience received its unloosing through the obedience of Mary;  for what Eve a virgin, bound by incredulity,  Mary, a virgin, unloosed by faith." See more below under New Adam, New Eve.
 (click icon for larger image)
+
AVES: Matte crystal 'tri-beads' (table cuts) with blue inclusions. A beautiful reminder of the triune God and of Mary.  Cane if vimtage glass formed in old glass bead molds, then polished or cut on a rotating table.  PATERS:  Hand carved wooden 'knots',  each framed with antiqued metal caps. The knots symbolize the knots in each of our lives, waiting for Mary, the New Eve  to untie.
+
Mary, Undoer of Knots
   St. Peter Perlach Church 
(Augsburg Germany)
painting by 
Johann Melchior Georg Schmittdner
c. 1700
+
INSCRIBED PRAYER
Over the years, Cardinal Bergoglio, (now Pope Francis),  would include a holy card of Mary, Undoer of Knots in his correspondence. Inscribed on the beck  was the following prayer:
+
   “May evil never ensnare you in its chaotic web…May you [Mary] act as an example of how to unravel the knots in our lives and help us through difficult times with simplicity and patience, through the intercession of Your Son.” 
+
THE HOLY FATHER REMINDS US
“All of us have knots in our hearts, failings and all of us go through difficult times. Our good Lord, who bestows grace on all His children, wants us to have faith in Her; he wants us to entrust the knots of our woes to her, the knots of our miseries that prevent us from reaching God, so that She can untie them and bring us closer to His son Jesus. This is the meaning of the icon.”  Pope Francis
+
TIME HONORED TRADITION
  St. Irenaeus, more fully developed the early 
word of mouth tradition of St. Paul who paralleled Adam and Christ: 
  "Eve, by her disobedience, tied the knot of disgrace for the human race; whereas Mary, by her obedience, undid it".
+
  And St Irenaeus (120-200) continued by noting,
+
"And so the knot of Eve's disobedience received its unloosing through the obedience of Mary; for what Eve, a virgin bound by incredulity, that Mary, a virgin, unloosed by faith."
+
FROM THE 1700s TO TODAY
But more recently we are made aware of the beautiful paining of Our Lady, Undoer of Knots painted in the early 1700s.  In the image she is standing on the serpents head as she unties the knot tied by Eve. 
 + 
 In the 1980’s Archbishop Jorge Mario Bergoglio, S.J. (now Pope Francis) saw the painting at the church of St. Peter Perlach (Augsburg Germany).  He was so deeply touched by this devotion,  he brought it back to Argentina where it grew in popularity with the people. Now, we are made more aware of its history thanks again to Pope Francis. 

LIFE GIVEN
EVE from ADAM  ---  CHRIST from MARY
The knot of Eve's disobedience was loosed by the obedience of Mary. The knot of which the virgin Eve tied by her unbelief, the Virgin Mary opened by her belief. Eve given life through Adam - the New Adam, Christ,  given life through the New Eve, Mary. (And thus, as the human race fell into bondage to death by means of a virgin, so it is rescued by a virgin.)

A BEAUTIFUL DEVOTION
Our family visited the church in Augsburg, saw the painting and it did not register fully in our minds as we did not know the history of the painting.  Please take the time to understand the importantce of this beautiful devotion and its history. We will be hearing more and more about this devotion as time passes. Check out the novena in our books Section.  RW

Be sure to read why the painting came to be at bottom of page.

ABOUT THE BEADS 
What a wonderful find, these hand carved wooden knot beads!  Each one a little different than the next, just like our knots of disobedience and sin. Each is framed with small antiqued metal caps.  We hope you will tie a knotted cord onto your personal rosary as a reminder to either pray for a personal knot in your life or a knot that is taking our nation captive. Let the strings hang down so they are seen. Many old filigree rosaries have fabric ribbons tied to them. (as seen in books and museums)
+
HAND CARVED WOODEN KNOTS

(no two exactly alike)
+
10 mm TRI-BEADS' FOR AVES
Another rare find and very limited!  Beads with 3 'windows' cut into their matte textured surface to reveal their rich, satiny inner beauty.  The glass cane is old and they were cast in glass bead molds that were designed after the old ones. Impossible to catch their beauty unless held in the hand as the light plays off of each window differently.  Also called 'Table Cuts'. When gone, unable to replace.

~ "PAX  ET  BONUM"  ~
A PIECE of HISTORY
SAINT FRANCIS OF ASSISI  (1182-1226). 
(click icon for larger image)
+
SISTER DEATH
AVES:  For Ave beads we have chosen a faceted brown/black glass bead that reminds us of the woven and patched garment of Francis of Assisi.  PATERS  Hand carved skulls from a fine wood. In response to Francis who often spoke of 'Sister Death'.
+
WHY SKULLS?
  He wanted us to set our sites on our eternal life, not that of earth.  He lives and calls us to lead a simpler life.  Francis is often painted with a skull in his hand or near by.  Read more regarding his signature which includes the ancient tradition of Adams skull below at bottom of page. 
+
Our 266th Pope took the name of Francis.  This is the first time in the history of the church this name has been chosen by a Pope.  It gives us an inner look into the soul of this man of God who will lead the church. He is a Jesuit - not a Franciscan - as one might first think.  Jesuits take on the vow of obedience and poverty, too but there is something rare and beautiful about this blending. 
+
FROM THE 
'CANTICLE OF THE SUN' by FRANCIS
  "Be praised, my Lord, through our Sister Bodily Death, from whose embrace no living person can escape.  Woe to those who die in mortal sin!  Happy those she finds doing your most holy will.  The second death can do no harm to them.
+
Praise and bless my Lord, and give thanks, and serve him with great humility."

~ PROTECTOR of the WORD  ~
A PIECE of HISTORY 
SAINT JOSEPH TERROR OF DEMONS!

Scripture does not tell us much about Joseph, the chosen father of Jesus. Scripture refers to him as a "tekton"  traditionally the word has been taken to mean "carpenter,  as does the Greek which implys an artisan of wood, iron or stone. We know he is from the line of David through his father Jacob. Scipture speaks of Jesus' 'brothers' may mean'cousins as it still does today in many cultures, or Joseph may have been a widow with children - history does not tell us.
+
FOUR DREAMS
We know of four dreams in which he is instructed super naturally before and after the birth of Jesus. the first when the angel comfirms Mary is with child, conceived by the Holy Spirit, hat she will bear a son to be named Jesus. 
+
ABOUT THE BEADS 
For Paters, we have chosen these hand carved wooden beads. Each has leaves carved into its surface, reminding us of the tree that will carry Our Lord into fullness. Small blue glass caps remind us of Mary who enbraces her beloved son, Jesus before, now in this present moment  and forever. The Ave beads are 10mm wood.

 +
HOLY FAMILY CENTER
A beautiful medal showing St Joseph, the protector and chosen father of Jesus as he holds this Child Jesus of the word of God.  They stand in the beautiful archway, the 'Gate of Heaven', Mary as she is called in the Litany of Mary.
+

AVAILABLE AS A CENTER OR MEDAL

~  'GREATER GLORY' ROSARY  ~
 A PIECE of HISTORY
AD MAJOREM DEI GLORIAM
"For the greater glory of God"

 
 
 

+
'Ad majorem Dei gloriam', (AMDG), is the Latin motto of the Society of Jesus.  In English: "For the greater glory of God". 
+
 Believed to be from the founder of the Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola. The full phrase from St Ignatius is "Ad majorem Dei gloriam inque hominum salutem" or "for the greater glory of God and salvation of man."  The monogram as seen on Pope Francis' Coat of Arms is 'IHS'. 'IHS"has been used as a monogram for the name of Jesus Christ since the 3rd century and for the Society of Jesus since 1541.
+
 ABOUT THE BEADS 
'THE BLACK ROBES'
The black matte 8mm Ave beads (shown above) are in honor of the 'Black Robes' the early Jesuits who came to evangelize the indigenous in  Nouvelle-France (New France) that area  now know as Canada and North American from the Great Lakes to the East), from 1609 on.  By 1634 the 'Black Robes' had established a mission to the north of the Rosary Workshop and by 1667 a mission to our south in Green Bay. 
+
Old vintage matte blue beads

 chosen to symbolize Our Lady
Untier of Knots
+
OLD VINTAGE BLUE PATERS
These old vintage matte blue Pater beads are from Germany, dated pre WWII by the dealer.   Each appears to have a cross on its surface. And if you look again,  a small knot.  A powerful  reminder of the knot that Eve tied and that Mary unties for us.  This devotion a favorite of our 266th Pope Francis, a Jesuit. 
+
JESUIT CRUCIFIX 
 (dated pre 1700s - found in a dig  in the 
Mohawk  valley.) 
+
JESUIT MISSIONARY CRUCIFIX: 
A rare find. Original found in the Mohawk Valley region of what we now know as NY at an old mission site dig. One of those crucifixes you wish could talk. What a history it could tell about the Jesuit who wore it and the events that surround it. The only known history passed to us by the collector was that it was carved by a priest who was ministering the indians in that area.
+
YET, WE WILL NEVER KNOW
  We will never know if there is a connection but it is a beautiful reminder of the North American Martyrs who were martyred at the Mohawk Indian village of Ossernenon between 1642 and 1646. St. Rene Goupil, a Jesuit brother, was martyred in 1642. St. Isaac Jogues, a Jesuit priest, and St. John Lalande, a lay missionary, were martyred in 1646. They remain the only canonized martyrs of the United States.

HE FOLLOWS 
IN THE FOOTSTEPS 
Our Lord has called his children, bringing each in line, each in perfect time to pass on his wisdom, slowly and gently he leads us from one good leader to the next. 

POPE BENEDICT XV1

+
'THE GLORY OF THE OLIVE' 
Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, our 265th pope, Benedict XVI, is not a Benedictine but a Diocesan Priest but  the name  he chose, Benedict, gave us a road sign - or the direction of his time as leader of the Roman Catholic Church.  Choosing the name Benedict XVI opened up many prophetic words from centuries past who labeled Benedict -  'The Glory of the Olive'.  The word Benedict means 'Blessings' and the order of 6th century St. Benedict is often called the 'Olivetans' has as its symbol the olive branch. (Peace maker).
+
POPE JOHN PAUL II
(from the labor of the sun.)

+
MAKE PEACE BEFORE ...
 "Pray for your enemies in the love of Christ, Make peace, before the setting of the sun, with those from whom you have been separated by discord, and never despair of the mercy of God." Much has been said recently re JPII being 'De Labore Solis',  (from the labor of the sun.) so this prophetic quote by St. Benedict makes one ponder.
+
 ... THE SETTING OF THE SUN
JP II was often thought of as 'De Labore Solis',  (from the labor of the sun.) On the day of his funeral (April 8 2005) there was an eclipse of the sun as on the day of his birth. He was born during an eclipse (May 18, 1920).   Eclipses of the sun have been thought of as 'signposts' or 'warnings' for centuries having heralded world events.  He was 'Mary's Pope' of the 3 secrets of Fatima '(Miracle of the Sun'.) And the sun rises in the East as did JP II who was from Poland.
