While it’s true rosaries offer a string of prayer beads to keep track of your prayer count, there’s far more to their true meaning.
For gentlemen of Catholic faith, the rosary holds special ties to both the sacraments of reconciliation and confession.
During the process of forgiveness, the rosary aids in washing man clean of sin while also renewing his love for Jesus Christ. Of course, it also acts as a testament towards the love and mercy Jesus has to offer back in return.
Yet, aside from its purpose, you might be surprised to know this sacred symbol translates to “garland of roses” in Latin. It make sense when you consider that the first beads found on the rosary were crafted from rose petals.
Now, if you’ve ever wondered where the connection to Virgin Mary comes from there’s your answer. For Catholic men, spotting Mary with a wreath of roses around her neck during sacred ceremonies is quite a common sight.
With that said, if you’re thinking about getting a tattoo of a rosary, there are a few things to understand first.
