EARTH: VOLCANOS AND EARTHQUAKES
We humans on earth are all are in the line of fire when it comes to natural disasters.  And in the last few years there seems to be an incredible outbreak of natural disasters not only in America but all over the world. This rosary series was inspired by these events, as we should not only pray for the safety of our own but of those who have gone before us who never had a chance for a conversion of heart. Intercessory prayer is needed more than ever before.

A CALL FOR THE
 IMMACULATE CONCEPTION
 In 1669, Mt Aetna erupted and Catania was covered in lava / a lake of fire. 24 years later in 1693 an earthquake shook the town down to its foundations. On Jan 11, over 100,000 people were killed in Catania Sicily by a major earthquake. The first earthquake was on 9 January, at 4:30 am (6.2mg) followed on the 11th the second earthquake at 7.4mg. By May of that year, the people underwent a religious reformation and elected the Madonna of the Immaculate Conception as their patron saint. Catania would rise again and rebuild in the Baroque style using lava as its building stone.

IMMACULATE CONCEPTION MEDAL - 1693
The ancient medal used on 2 of this series is in commemoration of these events, showing Our Lady holding the child, Jesus.  The date below her feet is 1693. The medal is a reproduction of an antique dated early 1800s

PRAY YOUR ROSARY FOR ALL VICTIMS
We dedicate these rosaries to all victims, as a part of our series on environmental / weather related tragedies. We hope to encourage people to remember, not only to pray your rosary for protection today but for those who have suffered in the past, for those who suffered sudden death with no time to convert.  And for protection against future events.

Nature is Gods creature. When Christ was crucified, the earth rebelled and the earth quaked. The rocks cried out! The earth revolted against the reality that their creator was crucified by man (sin). There was darkness, lightning and the dead arose. Remember how, after the fall, the sin of Adam, animals feared man.

LAVA, LAKE OF FIRE I  -   VOLCANIC RHYOLITE II
LORD OF MIRACLES III




~ LAVA - LAKE of FIRE I ~
  HAGGAI 2:6-7 
6  For thus says the LORD of hosts:   In just a little while I will shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. 7  I will shake all the nations, so that the treasures of all the nations will come in.  And I will fill this house with glory says the LORD of hosts.

AVE BEADS: we have chosen lava beads for this rosary and for the PATER BEADS:   A firey ruby red faceted Swarovski Crystal. A beautiful rosary regardless of the direction of ones prayers! The camera eye does not do this rosary justice! We apologize!

THE 'LAKE OF FIRE' - 1693
Certainly we have read about the Lake of Fire throughout our lives and visualize this HELL as being the end of the world.  Truly over history, thousands of people have died in the lake of fire spewed from active volcanos if not from the eruption of fire, smoke and debrie or from the earthquakes that followed.  For these souls, it was indeed the end of the world. Yet there is hope!

~ VOLCANIC RHYOLITE II ~
  FATIMA MESSAGE
Mary identified herself as, "I am the Lady of the Rosary", and continued, "I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask pardon for their sins.  They must not offend our Lord any more, for he is already to grievously offended by the sins of men.  People must say the rosary.  Let them continue saying it every day.

AVE BEADS: Rhyolite is a byproduct of volcanic action.  We have used a hard to find faceted rhyolite to show the beauty of this bead with its many colors.  The dominant color of green gives us a sense of hope. PATER BEADS: The Faceted Crystal Swarovski Paters give a firey, rich orange.  Eye of the camera does not do this rosary justice.

LORD OF MIRACLES MEDAL

THE STORY OF 
THE EARTHQUAKE: 
In 1651 a picture of a colored Jesus Christ crucified was painted on a wall by an Angolan slave. Four years later on Nov. 13, 1655, an earthquake struck Lima. Most of the city was leveled, but that image painted on the wall of Jesus was undamaged. It's believed that this image has been the occasion of many miracles. People believe that the closer they get to the image, the better chance of getting their miracle granted.
