“Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I received my rosary yesterday and it is simply magnificent! It is indeed a work of art. When I think of the love, dedication, and craftsmanship that you must pour into each rosary you create... well, it’s inspiring. I am truly in awe of your superb work and grateful to have found your web site. I will treasure this forever.” – Georgia, Virginia, USA

“I have received my orders from you and again want to thank you for them. The Blessed Sacrament and Seven Dolors chaplets are beautiful and will be treasured by me for many years. As others have said, the pictures on the web site don’t do them justice. I also want to thank you for the books you carry. They are clearly selected with the goal of deepening faith. It is wonderful to find a place where I can go and know that I will receive quality, not only of merchandise, but of faith. Again, thank you for the work you do.” – Mary, Minnesota, USA

“I received my custom St. Rita Rosary from you a few weeks ago and have been thinking about how I can sing the praises of your superior expert craftsmanship, and I cannot find the words that can do justice to how flawless and perfect this rosary truly is. My speechlessness will have to suffice as this rosary is simply the most perfect I have ever seen or prayed on. Thank you all so much for all of the sacramentals that you have made for me over the past year. They have all found great homes and have done more good than you can ever imagine. I am sure that you will be receiving more orders from me soon as all of my badges that you make me don’t last long in my rosary pouch since I give them away frequently to those who admire them. God Bless you ALL.” – Matthew, Arizona, USA

“I received my cord rosary today. It is absolutely beautiful, but I didn’t expect anything less, as it is not my first rosary from the Sisters of Carmel, so I am already well aware of your outstanding workmanship! And that is why I will never purchase rosaries from any other source.” – Kristin, Massachusetts, USA

“I just received my scapular and reliquary crucifix along with the Miraculous Medals. I am so very pleased with the quality of the items! Truly the BEST on-line selection of sacramentals. Thanks so much! I will be ordering from you again soon.” – David, Ohio, USA

“I RECEIVED MY ROSARY TODAY!! I AM SOOOO EXCITED!! What a wonderful job you did! The rosary is so very beautiful! The Pardon Crucifix is larger than I’d thought it would be; it is so beautiful! I know I keep saying beautiful, but it’s hard to find the words to say it otherwise. I thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart. I wonder at the craftsmanship and meticulous detail. It must take so much patience and devotion; the work is so finely done. The turquoise stones are so precious and finely made. I could go on and on.” – Kathleen, Connecticut, USA

“Your website is like an oasis of good spiritual things! You do such magnificent work, the chaplets are amazing! The badges are like having good friends near, and your books are so nourishing to the soul. I feel so blessed to have found you. I wish I could move in with you and stay forever and help with your good work! Just kidding, I am married and have two teenagers! Thank you again, and you are in my prayers.” – Laura, California, USA

“My custom rosary has arrived safely, thank you. It is an exquisite work of art that I shall always treasure. As soon as I held it, I could feel the sincerity of the love and the prayers that went into it while it was being made. The rose quartz and the white Czech Lampwork Rose beads complement each other beautifully. Thank you for the prayer card and the handwritten tab on the rosary and also for having it blessed by a priest...all extra personal touches that show that you care. I shall order again from you in the future.” – Eva Maria, Birmingham, United Kingdom

“I just wanted to thank you for the excellent customer service provided by your online shop and the very fine quality of scapular (the best I've seen) and Miraculous medal. I admire the wonderful work you are doing towards the restoration of Holy Church and Her glorious traditions.” – D.M., Northern Ireland

“I am contacting you to let you know that I have received my order! I can’t find the words to thank you for the two wonderful chaplets that you sent me! They are very fine! It is clear to me that your great mission of handmaking rosaries and chaplets is undoubtedly a great gift of GOD! I also appreciated the books I ordered. Your religious articles are very refined and are made with great love, passion and cleverness. The colours of the chaplets are very fine! I am very happy to have the opportunity to pray every day with your chaplets! It is really a great honour for me!” – Cristina, Milan, Italy

“The craftsmanship of the rosary is by far the best I have seen. The smoothness of the chain, the onyx beads, and the overall balance of this exquisite piece is like no other I’ve seen. Unlike other rosaries I’ve owned in the past, this rosary which was handmade is certainly of higher quality and is much more durable than the factory-made rosaries which tend to break easily. You might recall that I ordered another rosary from the monastery last year which was corded and of olive wood beads...just as well made.” – David, Pennsylvania, USA

“About a year ago, I had ordered three of your scapulars (one for myself and one for each of my two children), and I just want to thank you for your wonderfully crafted scapulars. I’m a notorious scapular breaker due to the way I sleep and rough-house with my kids. Your scapular has held up to all of that and is still as good as new with no fraying.” – Sam, Massachusetts, USA

“Unbelievable service – I received my order on Monday, exactly five days after placing it. Your customer service is outstanding. Everything was securely packaged and arrived in perfect condition. The ceramic ornaments are lovely, and I can’t wait to add them to my Christmas tree this year. The exquisite suncatcher will be placed in my kitchen window where it will be appreciated every day. And as for the ‘In Paradisum’ CD, all I can say is it’s on continuous loop right now. I love early sacred choral music and have a collection of CD’s, but this one is stunningly beautiful and has become my new favorite.” – Linda, North Carolina, USA

“My round olive wood bead cord rosary with its brass rosewood inlaid crucifix arrived in the mail yesterday. It’s absolutely beautiful! And this is not only a response of the mind but one from the inner depths of my heart. The Sisters are superb craftspersons, and they are making an immeasureable contribution to our prayer life and our life in the spirit.” – Phil, New Mexico, USA

“I received my rosary today! Thank you!!! It is, by far, the most exquisite rosary I've ever seen! The beauty and workmanship of your rosary far surpasses even that of a high-end Creed rosary which I own. I feel privileged to own one of your rosaries because the extraordinary skill and love that went into its creation is so obvious. The rosary feels wonderful in the hands – strong and durable, yet beautifully feminine in appearance! Once again, you have far exceeded my expectations!” – Kristin, Massachusetts, USA

“These are the most beautiful brown scapulars I have had the honor and privilege to wear. Their design and making is wonderful and beautifully crafted and so much better than previous scapulars I have worn...my humble thanks.” – Graeme, Queensland, Australia

“I want to thank you for the beautiful Sacred Heart of Jesus chaplet. The red marble beads are absolutely beautiful. I have never seen such fine workmanship on a badge as on the one of St. Joseph that I just received! It is truly outstanding. The Stations of the Cross Crucifix is beyond words! The quality is superior!” – Frances, Arizona, USA

“I just received my rosary today, and I am embarrassed actually to own something so awesomely beautiful. Even though I knew what I had ordered, I really wasn’t sure what to expect, and when I opened it, it is just so simply beautiful, it took my breath away. It exceeds my hopes, and I thank you for creating something so beautiful. I don’t know what more I can say. I’m going to place another order soon. Thank you so much.” – Robin, Indiana, USA

“The rosary I ordered arrived today. How could anyone let this day close without writing to tell you how beautiful it is? The care, concern, and quality that went into creating this piece is beyond expression, and it is something that I will appreciate through many, many devotions. It is truly beautiful. Thank you very much.” – Scott, Michigan, USA

“I received my rosary yesterday! It’s the most exquisitely crafted rosary that I have ever seen; a God-given work of art from your blessed hands.” – Mary, Tennessee, USA

“I wanted to let you know that I received the Rosary that you created for us just a short while ago. Sisters, it has to be without exception the most beautiful Rosary I have ever held. It is exactly how I envisioned it and the size is perfect. You were also right about the beads; the color is exceptional! Thank you, thank you, thank you each and every Sister for doing such a perfect job and for putting up with us throughout this whole process. While rersearching this project, every time I looked elsewhere, I always seemed to be guided back to the Sisters of Carmel, and now I know why...PERFECTION!” – a Catholic Church, New York, USA

Thank You Falls Short of My Gratitude – I received the rosary that you handcrafted for my future son-in-law. I was elated to see the beauty of the black mother of pearl beads and the stunning sterling silver crucifix. I am certain you have heard this many times before, but your hand detailing on this rosary is extraordinary. But what I am most appreciative of is that it was made with loving hands and hearts interceding for my future son-in-law.” – Rita, Michigan, USA

“I received my beautiful handmade rosary today and it is absolutely exquisite! I knew it would be nice, but I had no idea it would be this incredible. Thank you so much! I can tell it was made with not only tremendous skill but with much love and care. I will treasure this rosary always.” – Cecilia, Michigan, USA

“I just wanted to thank you for the exceptional care you took in packing/shipping the books and other items in my order.... It’s the little extra touches like this that go a long way with the customer and lets them know how much you value their business.” – R.C., New York, USA

“The Chaplet that I ordered from you arrived today. I do not have enough words to describe the joyous feeling that overcame me as I took the chaplet out of the velvet pouch. Thank you for love and care that went into crafting such a delicate and beautiful treasure. I will recommend you to anyone looking to buy a rosary or chaplet and will be back to shop some more!” – D.V.

“My rosary arrived today. It is the most beautiful thing I have ever held in my hands. I feel honoured to have one of your rosaries. It’s everything I wanted in a rosary and more; it exceeds my expectations by far! It is a masterpiece to behold as well as something to use daily. I can’t thank you enough! I will recommend You and Your workmanship to everyone I know. I will be happy to continue buying things from You. God bless You and Your work!” – F.G.

“Once again, you have outdone yourselves. The rosary bracelet and my new rosary are just beautiful! They are so lovely. I have been wearing my rosary bracelet every day, and it feels nice to be able to look down and see a small miraculous medal and cross on my wrist. Also, this is the first time I have seen the lampwork rose beads, and they are every bit as lovely as you describe on your website. Whenever I see my rosaries/rosary bracelet, I think of you and pray for your vocations, that God may richly bless you in all you do. Once again, thank you so much for the beautiful rosaries. They are something I will always treasure.” – A.Q.

“I received my Scapular, Holy Spirit medal, and San Damiano Crucifix a few weeks ago and just wanted to tell you thank for providing such fine quality items. The workmanship of the Scapular is of the finest I have ever seen. It is highly apparent that much love and devotion to the Lord and Our Blessed Mother went into that Scapular.” – M.W.G.

“I received my sterling silver Pardon Crucifix yesterday. It was such a pleasure to receive it. Everything was packaged and presented with such care and finesse. The crucifix was crafted with such intricate and beautiful details that it does not do justice to look at it through the Internet. One has to order it to relish what a beautiful piece of art it is. Again, the manner you package the crucifix, the enclosures contained within, and the quality of craftmanship itself has totally exceeded my expectations.” – K.W.C.

“I wonder if you tire of hearing praise from your customers, but I can’t refrain from writing to tell you how much I appreciate the care and love with which you create these prayer tools. I literally have searched the world for rosaries, and I have found pretty rosaries that fall apart, and sturdy rosaries that are, to put it kindly, aesthetically distracting. Yours are the only ones I have found that marry beauty and strength. Thank you so much.” – M.G.

“WOW – what beautiful workmanship in these rosaries and chaplets. I am in awe of your talent to make such beautiful rosaries with absolutely gorgeous bows – stunning! I have my grandfather’s old rosary, he brought it with him when he moved here from Italy, and it has the same gorgeous bows that you all make, but I never see rosaries made this way, except for yours.” – C.B.

“The rosary you made for me just arrived. It is the most incredible and beautiful rosary that I have ever seen or owned. It is a true blessing and a masterpiece. You are all so talented and creative. The architecture of it is so unique: the Crucifix and the medals are wonderful. The beads are solid and heavy and the chain is very strong. And the bows are unique and intricate. I just can’t say enough about the rosary.” – C.P.

“I just received my new Rosary you made for me today and I honestly cannot find the words to tell you how beautiful it is! I had complete confidence when I ordered it that the workmanship was going to be jeweler’s quality. Actually holding the Rosary and seeing it, I could not believe the exquisite craftsmanship and love that went into creating this Holy symbol of the Blessed Virgin’s Promise to the faithful. All I can simply say is, ‘A Thousand and One Thank-You’s!!’ I will cherish this beautiful work of love and art for many many years to come. You have my solid promise that I will indeed spread the word about your website, and I will be back to order more merchandise from you in the future!” – M.W.G.

“I am truly pleased beyond my expectations with the rosary. There is a great swelling of peace and joy in my heart when I hold the beads of prayer. I know that it will become a very sacred and treasured possession in my religious journey and my daily life. I feel stronger knowing that your prayers are with me, and I will never leave my home without your rosary with me. I feel blessed that I was led by God to your web site, for you have given me a gift ten fold its monetary value. Bless you, Sisters, and the mission you have undertaken.” – R.A.D.

“I just wanted to let you know I have received the rosary, and I am practically speechless. It is simply stunning, and is exactly what I have been looking for for almost two years. Thank you again.” – J.C.

“My Cocoa bead rosary and Carnelian Holy Face chaplet arrived in today’s mail. They are wonderful. Thank you so much! Your craftsmanship is beyond compare! I will be ordering again. Thank goodness for your online store! Thank you again for providing all of us with your wonderful and blessed work. It means so much to someone like me to have a rosary to pray with that is made by the Carmelite Sisters. You have no idea!” – A.Z.

“The St. Therese Chaplet arrived safely and is better than I could have imagined. The medal is so sharp and the beads really DO have roses inside them. It feels sturdy when I pray the chaplet. It was a gift from my husband. And thanks so much for your meticulous care for every detail of this beautiful sacramental. God bless you all!” – M.C.

“Thanks very much for the rosaries, which I received today. They are indeed beautifully wrought, so finely and yet obviously so durably. Thanks again very much! With prayers for your community,” – Fr. M.W.

“Thank you so much for the beautiful workmanship you did on the Rosary. I received it yesterday, and I just love it. It is, by far, the prettiest one I’ve ever owned and the fact that you handmade it especially for me makes it something that I will forever treasure. Again, thank you so much. I have a feeling I’ll be doing business with you again.” – K.T.

“The Lapis rosary arrived today. It is absolutely stunning. I bought it as a gift. Now, I may have trouble parting with it. It is certainly the most beautiful rosary I have ever purchased. Thank you so much for your efforts. I will let people I know here about your work, and I will keep you in my prayers.” – G.M.

“I received the ring today and it is absolutely beautiful and perfect. My daughter is leaving for her 1st year at University of Georgia and has so often spoken about how she chooses to remain a virgin until marriage and your ring is my gift to her to help her stay the course. Thank you so very, very much!” – D.R.

“The custom rosary you made me with the Pardon Crucifx I sent you has arrived! All I can say is WOW! It is really lovely and will be very dear to my heart. You are right; those large carved olive wood beads are very, very nice. They feel wonderful in the hand. I could not be more pleased! As always, your craftmanship is so awesome there are no words to describe! How DO you make these wonderful tiny IDENTICAL loops? I have never seen such perfection! Thank you, thank you! The centerpiece you chose is perfect!” – A.Z.

“I received the rosary that you made for me today. When you asked me what color I wanted, I said, ‘Some shade of blue, surprise me.’ Well, when I opened the package and saw the most beautiful color of blue I ever saw, I was in total awe. I am of German descent and strive for perfection. It takes a lot to impress me, but this rosary really floored me. I just have to tell you all that you did a superb job. I will cherish this rosary forever.” – Dennis, Wisconsin, USA
