ABOUT THE ROSARY OF THE UNBORN
Q - Does the Small Rosary of the Unborn have the same graces as the Large Rosary?
A - The Small (One-Decade), Large (Five Decade), and Finger Card versions of the Rosary hold the graces given by Our Lord and Our Lady. The Promises were given in messages dated July 2 and August 3 of 2001. The Small and Finger Card Rosaries are affordable alternatives to the original Large, 5-decade Rosary of the Unborn. The Finger Card is also a cost effective way to evangelize and distribute the Rosary around the world. (Please review the section of this website entitled, "Promises and Important Messages".)
Q - Is the Rosary of the Unborn handmade? How is it made?
A - Parts of the Rosary are manufactured and then intricately hand-assembled. The teardrop-shaped Hail Mary beads consist of two teardrop halves which are glued together with a small plastic image of an unborn baby inside each bead. The red Our Father crosses are manufactured as one piece. The chain links, centerpieces and crucifixes are a good quality and made for The Rosary of the Unborn in Italy.

Q - What should I do if only one person in my prayer group has a Rosary? Do we all need Rosaries to pray as a group?
A - In a message from Jesus on February 28, 2005, Our Lord stated that under certain circumstances, one Rosary will still allow for certain graces: "I am your Jesus, born Incarnate. What My Mother told you last night concerning the Rosary of the Unborn is this. If a group is gathered who are praying for the unborn from the heart and only one person has in their possession the Rosary of the Unborn, I will honor each 'Hail Mary' from each person in the group as if they were holding the Rosary of the Unborn themselves. In this way I lift the constraint of time which it takes to produce enough rosaries."
