In his Apostolic Letter on the Most Holy Rosary, Pope John Paul II refers to the Rosary as a prayer of and for the family. It is with this declaration in mind that we create rosary bracelets especially appealing to young people with busy lives. The rosary bracelet is much the same style and concept of the rosary tenner, having ten Aves and a Paternoster and concluding with a Miraculous medal and a small crucifix. Worn on the wrist, it is easy to pray the Rosary a decade at a time throughout the day, inspiring prayer and devotion for the busiest of the Faithful.

"It could be objected that the Rosary seems hardly suited to the taste of children and young people of today. But perhaps the objection is directed to an impoverished method of praying it. Furthermore, without prejudice to the Rosary's basic structure, there is nothing to stop children and young people from praying it – either within the family or in groups – with appropriate symbolic and practical aids to understanding and appreciation. Why not try it? With God's help, a pastoral approach to youth which is positive, impassioned and creative....is capable of achieving quite remarkable results. If the Rosary is well presented, I am sure that young people will once more surprise adults by the way they make this prayer their own and recite it with the enthusiasm typical of their age group." ~APOSTOLIC LETTER ROSARIUM VIRGINIS MARIAE OF THE SUPREME PONTIFF JOHN PAUL II TO THE BISHOPS, CLERGY AND FAITHFUL ON THE MOST HOLY ROSARY~
