These finely crafted Franciscan Crown 7 decade Rosaries are made in Italy
and come in a plastic pouch with a prayer instruction insert.
Method of Saying the Franciscan Crown
Begin at once with the first decade, saying one Our Father and ten Hail Marys. Then continue in the same manner with the remaining six decades, reciting each one in honor of the mystery commemorated:
1. The Annunciation
2. The Visitation
3. The Birth of Our Lord
4. The Adoration of the Magi
5. The Finding of Jesus in the Temple
6. The Resurrection of our Lord
7. The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin
On finishing the seventh decade, say two Hail Marys (on the two beads near the cross), in honor of the seventy-two years Our Lady is said to have lived on earth. Finally say one Our Father and a Hail Mary (on the two beads nearest the cross) for the intention of the Pope to gain the indulgences.
