Full of Grace Silver Sacrifice Bead Set Giveaway

Here they are! The last Full of Grace Giveaway (for a little while at least! I'm going to do another one before Maggie arrives) is for a string of Silver Sacrifice Beads.

These Silver Plated Sacrifice Beads measure 5 1/2 inches from the bottom of the Miraculous Medal to the bottom of the Crucifix. The ten smaller beads measure 6mm, while the large bead measures 8mm.

The story of sacrifice beads begins with the story of Saint Therese of Lisieux. As a chlid The Little Flower, along with her sisters, used a little string of beads to count their gifts of "little sacrifices" which they did out of love for God. They carried their beads with them in their pockets.

Saint Therese's "Little Way" is well known. She drew closer to God through small acts in her day to day life, saying:

“Love proves itself by deeds, so how am I to show my love? Great deeds are forbidden me. The only way I can prove my love is by scattering flowers and these flowers are every little sacrifice, every glance and word, and the doing of the least actions for love.”

Sacrifice Beads may also be used as a sort of pocket rosary, with one Our Father bead separated from the ten Hail Mary beads.

When you pull the ten smaller sacrifice beads they slide up the row and stay in place until you pull them back again. They are wonderful to use as a small rosary or to use to count good deeds and sacrifices throughout the day (and they are a great motivating tool!).
