In Rome City, Indiana the Blessed
Virgin Mary appeared to a humble nun in 1956 as Our Lady of America and asked her to spread this devotion. Despite many efforts and church approval, few people are aware of the apparition site of Our Lady of America, her messages or the miracles that continue to happen in Rome City. People travel the globe to visit other apparition sites unaware that Mary is in their own backyard.

Under Her Starry Mantle

This one-of- a -kind rosary was sold at the Day of Prayer and Healing on July 10th, 2010, in Rome City, Indiana. Thanks and God bless, Laurie!
This rosary reminds me of the phrase "under her starry mantle" with the blue colors of the night sky and silver sparkles like those of the stars. It was made with genuine Swarovski Crystal Sapphire AB 8mm bicones (Aves) and blue glow in the dark Heart (Paters). The spacers are Swarovski Crystal Comet Argent Light 4mm bicones providing a perfect silver match to the sterling silver center Miraculous Medal enclosed in a heart frame.
The silver crucifix is one of my favorites, depicting John and Mary at the foot of the cross. Measuring 20.5 inches long and 8.5 inches from the center to the bottom of the crucifix.
