Daily Review: Rugged Rosaries

Jack Mauro

The Daily Catch - published on 04/27/16

Does your son complain that the little beads of his rosary often get confusing, leaving him wondering if he’s skipped a few in his last decade? Are you a man who worries that a standard rosary (or single-decade chaplet) would seem ridiculous in your giant hands?

Well, your humble correspondent is a big-handed guy and he says, “Put your worries to bed, because the solution is here.”

Rugged Paracord Rosaries from are constructed from military grade 550 paracord (That’s right, the same cords they use in parachutes). These are surprisingly lightweight rosaries with beads that come in a variety of colors and finishes (even camo) and with unique and beautiful crucifixes. You can also add medals of patron saints to customize your rosary.

No delicate handling is needed for a Rugged Rosary. Just keep it in your pack, bag, car, pocket, or even under your pillow at night. Rugged Rosaries have a full money back guarantee against breakage

Originally designed with soldiers in mind, Rugged Paracord Rosaries directs its ads towards men, noting that they are “Sized and spaced for men’s larger hands”. After some use by Aleteia staff, though, we think the large lightweight beads would be perfect for anyone, male or female, who has arthritis or other fine-motor difficulties.

If you’re looking for a gift for a guy you love, or a firefighter, or a police officer, or someone who spends their days working in rough terrain, or you just need a comfort-boost for your prayer life, Rugged Paracord is offering Aleteia readers an exclusive 10% discount. Just enter the code ALETEIA10 into their discount box at checkout.
