Our Lady of Guadalupe Charm Bracelet

Feast Day: December 12

O Virgin of Guadalupe,
Mother of the Americas,
grant to our homes the grace of loving
and respecting life in its beginnings,
with the same love with which
You conceived in Your womb 
the life of the Son of God.
Blessed Virgin Mary,
Mother of Fair Love,
protect our families so that 
they may always be united 
and bless the upbringing of our children.

Our hope, look upon us with pity,
teach is to go continually to Jesus,
and if we fall 
help us to rise again and return to Him
through the confession of our faults 
and our sins in the Sacrament of penance, 
which gives peace to the soul.
We beg You to grant us a great love 
of all the holy Sacraments,
which are, as it were,
the signs that Your Son left us on earth.
Thus, Most Holy Mother,
with the peace of God in our consciences,
with our hearts free from evil and hatred,
we will be able to bring to all others 
true joy and peace,
which come to us from your Son, 
our Lord Jesus Christ,
who with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
lives and reigns for ever and ever.
(Pope John Paul II.)

I created this beautiful bracelet honoring Our Humble Lady of Guadalupe using a very unique cross from Italy depicting Our Lady of Guadalupe on center, Crucified Christ, St. Juan Diego and Angels .

Catholic medals I used are St. Cecilia, St. Joan of Arc, St. Martin of Tours, St. Rocco, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, Sacred Heart of Jesus and others.

I used a variety of flowers including a beautiful Jade gemstone Calla Lilly and Millefiori beads.
