You can now purchase rosary bracelets by going to our drop down tab under Rosaries and selecting rosary bracelets. Additionally, we now have an Etsy store as well, though it is in its infancy. You can visit the store at www.etsy.com/shop/benedictsbeads. We hope you enjoy your shopping experience, and please keep us updated on any bugs you may encounter. We hope to make it as smooth as possible.
As you know, we’re in a major transition and trying to get our business back up and running. I am pleased to let you know that we now have payment forms up for three types of rosaries- Build A Rosary, Mini-Rosaries, and Wedding Rosaries. Please visit these pages to place your order for these type of rosaries. I am also happy to say that for these forms, you can now order up to 3 rosaries at a time through the same form. We are working on getting the other forms up too and we ask for you patience as these come about. Please, if you would like to order a rosary for a form that is not already up, contact us at email@example.com.
To make it easier for those who don’t know the prices, we have set up a page simply listing the prices of our rosaries which can be found here.
To my esteemed customers,
As I have posted on my other blog, The Slave of the Immaculate, I have requested a dispensation from my vows and will be returning to lay life.
This, of course, has implications for Benedict’s Beads. As some of you may know, I brought this rosary business to St. Benedict’s Abbey as Mediatrix Rosaries and rechristened it Benedict’s Beads. The Abbey has graciously agreed to let me keep the business and the name, since I was the only monk to make and sell the rosaries. You can therefore be assured of the same quality of craftsmanship and care for any rosaries sold as well as a commitment to excellence in all things for the glory of Jesus Christ, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and St. Benedict.
The Abbey has agreed to allow me to offer the Abbey rosary, with an exciting new centerpiece that I will unveil soon. A percentage of the proceeds from the Abbey Rosary will go to support St. Benedict’s Abbey. I will let you all know details as I discuss them with Fr. Maurice, the business manager.
I will be updating the website to reflect the new changes and, once I have registered the business with the state, will resume full, uninterrupted business. I appreciate your patience. I am still accepting timely orders by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not hesitate if you need a rosary soon!
Please keep me in your prayers as I begin this new step of my life and sort out all the details of this transition.
In Christ through Mary,
Br. Benedict Mary, soon to be Brad, Geist
