Saint Therese, the little flower, as a child, used to carry in her pocket a small string of beads to help her count the gifts she did to offer to God. In this way she was able to advance in perfection daily.
These beads consist of a string of ten beads, which can be pulled across one at a time and each bead will stay in place. Sacrifice beads also have a fixed Our Father bead on the end and can double up as a rosary….just think, you will never lose your place when praying!!
The Sacrifice beads pictured are made with silver metal barrel beads. The crucifix is silver plated and has a Miraculous Medal on the end. (medals may vary)
measures – approx. 8 inches (from medal to crucifix) – handy to take anywhere.
Comes packaged with instructions.
As a child, St. Therese would use a small string of beads in her pocket to help her count the gifts she offered to God each day. Now known as Sacrifice Beads or Good Deed Beads.
With each good deed a bead would be pushed towards the crucifix to show the Good deed was given to God. All day long, Saint Therese did little things to show Jesus how much she loved Him.
