Our Lady of Lourdes Locket Shrine Rosary Religious Necklace

O Holy Virgin,  
in the midst of Your days of glory,  
do not forget the sorrows of this earth.  
Cast a merciful glance upon those who are suffering
 struggling against difficulties, 
 with their lips constantly pressed 
against life’s bitter cup.  
Have pity on those who love each other
 and are separated. 
Have pity on our rebellious hearts.
 Have pity on our weak faith. 
Have pity on those who weep, 
on those who pray, 
on those who fear.
 Grant hope and peace to all. 

I created this locket shrine necklace honoring Our Beautiful Lady of Lourdes using a vintage rosary and creating it as a necklace.
Inside locket I added a tiny figural image of Our Lady of Lourdes a vintage crucifix and a beautiful acrylic rose and a beautiful color image of St. Rose of Lima.

Today I had a wonderful experience with my 2 yr old granddaughter. I have a picture of Our Lady of Lourdes in my room and my granddaughter loved it and wanted me to take her to Wal-Mart to buy her one, she thinks Wal-Mart may sell them and I explained to her they don't have them there, she then told me to take her to Target to find one, that just filled me with so much joy that she expressed so much love for Our Lady of Lourdes.

This is beautiful Lety, and the story too of our little holy woman. Last night I dreamt of Our Lady of Lourdes - that my old statue of Her would teach me how to pray. Our Lady must be strong right now.
