Real Men Pray The Rosary
Real Men Pray The Rosary, Inc. is a nonprofit apostolate devoted to promoting the Rosary with conviction “in the light of Scripture, in harmony with the liturgy, and in the context of our daily lives.”
Real Men Pray The Rosary serves as a resource and as a catalyst to encourage praying the Rosary and for honoring our Blessed Mother.
We made the acquaintance of David Calvillo, founder, a few years ago at the Catholic Marketing Networking Conference. Their trade show booth was swarming with individuals — a testament to the power of their message and to the devotion, and support for their unique brand. Shirts, hats, mugs — all featuring that powerful “hand gripping the rosary.”
At that time, the RMPTR team hadn’t yet considered including a branded rosary among their offerings. So, after several months, Ghirelli put a plan of action into place — and the official Real Men Pray The Rosary rosary was born!
“I truly feel Ghirelli has made my dream of the power and beauty of the rosary a reality.” — David Calvillo
Beads 6mm Hematite Crucifix Replica of the papal ferula, made famous by Saint Pope John Paul II Centerpiece Front: an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe; Back: the unique branding logo created by Real Men Pray The Rosary
The Centerpiece on the Real Men Pray The Rosary rosary, like the apostolate itself, is under the approving and watchful gaze of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a special devotion of the apostolate’s founder, David Calvillo. The RMPTR logo centerpiece emphasizes the message that real men pray and real men pray the Rosary!
The Papal Crucifix is the Christocentric focus of this unique rosary, as the wondrous 6mm hematite prayer beads provide the weight that this timeless prayer merits in the hands of one who wishes to nourish his faith with Mary’s help.
