My mother had a special devotion to the rosary and to the Blessed Virgin Mary. She would many times throughout each day pray to Mary, offer works, joys and sufferings to Our Lord, through Our Lady, and would often times pray all the mysteries of the rosary each day. And for nearly seventeen years my mother made beautiful rosaries both for loved ones and clients around the world. She literally had a stockpile of beautiful beads, crucifixes and the like, of the highest quality. The rosaries she made were truly heirloom in quality.

At some point the signs of dementia started to take shape in my mother and very quickly deteriorated her ability to do many things, including even praying the rosary. She's moved on now to her eternal reward, but she left her bead and rosary supplies to me to do with as I wish, which of course for me, was to continue her legacy of crafting beautiful, handmade rosaries. As interest and demand slowly began to grow, I decided a new vehicle was needed to expose people, faithful or otherwise, to the beauty of the rosary.

Cross and Shield's primary mission is to expose the rosary and it's benefits to as many of the faithful as possible and introduce it and the messages and teachings of Our Lady of the Rosary to non-Catholics in an effort to educate and convert.

In addition to having a wide variety of Catholic rosaries for sale, Cross and Shield offers various other Catholic devotionals and items like medals, journals and Catholic t-shirts.

Our goal is to provide you with the finest quality Catholic rosaries and customer service. We're so confident in the quality of our paracord rosaries that we offer a lifetime warranty on all our rosaries along with a 90-day, no questions asked return policy (see policy) on all of our products. That means, you can rest assured in your order. Should there ever be an issue, we will do whatever it takes to make it right.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and may the Blessed Virgin Mary dispense upon you many graces from our Lord and her Son, Jesus Christ.
