Lourdes Rosary With Spina Christi Seeds Beads, Silver Lourdes Grotto Link Medal, Pilgrimage Medal to Rome 1962

This is a really pretty and much loved rosary that was made as a souvenir of a oilgrimage to Lourdes in the 1950s and has a silver link medal with The Virgin Mary on one side and the grotto scene on the reverse.

The cross is very unusual as it has the Chi Rho, the symbol of Christ with the symbols for Alpha and Omega. I have not seen this before on a rosary.

The rosary subsequently went with its owner on a pilgrimage to Rome. The medal is The Brothers of Saint Gabriel and it is dated 1962.

Saint Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows was born in 1838 in Italy and died in 1862. In 1962, the centenary of his death, the Brothers of Saint Gabriel established their chapter house in Rome.

The rosary itself measure 56cms in length. The cross is 2.5 by 2.5 cms.
The link medal is 1.5 cm by 1 cm and the pilgrimage medal is 2.5 cms in diameter.
