A Most Beautiful and Effective Devotion
St Bridget of Sweden (1307-1373), a noblewoman by birth, was one of the most influential and respected women of her time. She was a confident and guide of kings and popes. Regarding Her Seven Sorrows, Our Lady gave these 7 wonderful promises to St Bridget of Sweden.
"I will grant peace to their families."
"They will be enlightened about the divine Mysteries."
"I will console them in their pains and will accompany them in their work."
"I will give them as much as they ask for as long as it does not oppose the adorable will of my divine Son or the sanctification of their souls."
"I will defend them in their spiritual battles with the infernal enemy and I will protect them at every instant of their lives."
"I will visibly help them at the moment of their death-- they will see the face of their mother."
"I have obtained this grace from my divine Son, that those who propagate this devotion to my tears and sorrows will be taken directly from this earthly life to eternal happiness, since all their sins will be forgiven and my Son will be their eternal consolation and joy."
These are included in a beautiful pamphlet that comes together with these quality glass beads made by religious sisters.
Just one example of the effectiveness of this devotion is seen in the fact that all seven founders of the Servite order, were dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows, all gained great holiness, and are all now canonised saints.

St Michael is the Prince of the Heavenly Hosts of Angels.

The Combined Societies of Mary are pleased to be able to offer the special Chaplet with instructions so that you too can invoke the powerful protection of St Michael and the nine choirs of Angels as depicted by the differently coloured beads history of this Chaplet goes back to a devout Servant of God, Antonia d’Astonac, who had a vision of St. Michael. He told Antonia to honour him by nine salutations to the nine Choirs of Angels. St. Michael promised that whoever would practice this devotion in his honour would have, when approaching Holy Communion, an escort of nine angels chosen from each of the nine Choirs.
In addition, for those who would recite the Chaplet daily, he promised his continual assistance and that of all the holy angels during life.
These revelations and the Chaplet to Saint Michael were approved by Pope Pius IX in 1851.

Chaplet of Saint Philomena
Pray to Saint Philomena,
Whatever you ask from
her, she will obtain for you. (Pope Gregory XVI)
St Philomena is truly unique in the whole history of the Church. Her tomb was discovered in the 19th Century, the details of her life made known to holy visionaries, and her fame owes itself to the wonderful miracles that God performs at her bequest. She was canonised by Pope Gregory XVI in 1837, and she continues today with
The Chaplet to St Philomena was created by the great St John Vianney, Cure of Ars, patron saint of the priesthood. Countless miracles occurred when St John Vianney recommended souls to his dear Saint Philomena. .
The thirteen beads commemorates the thirteen years of this saints short life. These beautiful glass beads come with prayer card instructions. The intercession of St. Philomena has been invoked in every sort of need,
such that she has become another patron of “hopeless” cases. She has been known to be especially powerful in cases involving the conversion of sinners and return to the Church. She is often invoked by expectant mothers, destitute mothers, and in cases of problems with children, help for the sick and for the aid of the Missions. But no matter has been too trivial or too unimportant to concern her.
