The custom rosary you created for the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe is beautiful; with the Crucifix modeled after the Crucifix in the Shrine Church, the images of the four Church Fathers, which are portrayed in the Shrine Church, and the image of Saint Juan Diego holding the Tilma. May God reward you for the beautiful gift!

I truly feel Ghirelli has made my dream of the power and beauty of the rosary a reality. We have received an overwhelming response from not only men who support our Real Men Pray the Rosary apostolate, but also from women who are purchasing our rosaries for the men in their lives. We are grateful to Alessandro and the entire Ghirelli team for bringing this part of our apostolate’s vision to life.

I was delighted with the beautiful rosary created for the Basilica of saint Mary of the Assumption in Marietta, Ohio.  The work on the crucifix, the coat of arms, and the image of the Assumption are exceptional.  This rosary is truly a work of art that will be appreciated for years to come.  The Bishop of our Diocese of Steubenville is delighted with the wonderful quality of your work.  May God bless you with great success.

The rosary for our Cathedral is absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much for working with us to produce such a worthy sacramental for the faithful of our Archdiocese and for the many visitors to our Mother Church. Your custom rosaries provide such a unique and splendid way of fostering devotion to our Heavenly Mother with the added blessing of encouraging community spirit. I can't wait to have one of my own. I also hope, God willing, to be able to work with you again in any future ministries that I am appointed to.

The Holy Father urges us to pray the rosary daily, so picking one for The World Meeting of Families – Philadelphia 2015 was an important task. When we were presented with the designs from Ghirelli we were delighted! Their representation of the rosary with the theme of the World Meeting of Families was just what we were looking for. The rosaries Ghirelli has created are true collectors’ items and will be one of the most important keepsakes pilgrims can take away from the event.

When the idea of a basilica rosary first occurred to me I couldn't imagine the adventure that would unfold in the months ahead.  Soon after I found the Ghirelli website our rosary team began working with Alessandro's design team.  We worked closely with their representative here in the U.S. throughout the entire process -- which resulted in a quality rosary that is truly one of a kind and unique only to our basilica.  The designs for the Our Father beads were converted to metal by the Italy team from hand drawings by a parishioner and artist, Jeanne Tasse, who originally designed them for the dome of the basilica.  Working with professionals was helpful but the most important thing that added to our experience was working with a Christian family and their Christian representative who not only patiently went out of their way to accommodate our many requests for customization but exchanged prayers with us along the way.  May God continue to bless the Ghirelli family's commitment to spreading the rosary devotion throughout the world.

I have spent about 10 years designing a rosary on paper that embodied the reality of "Soldiers of Christ" in the "Kingdom of God". Praying the rosary is "going into battle". As a man, I wanted a rosary that embodied the elements of a warrior. When I shared my concept and designs with Ghirelli, they took what I had on paper and brought this design to life. The quality, attention to detail, artistry and professionalism of Alessandro Ghirelli and his team have been spectacular. When I made "The Warrior's Rosary" available to the public, the results have been nothing short of "stunning". Both men and women have been purchasing them for themselves, their family members and friends. I literally cannot keep them in stock. They are sold out before I even receive them in hand. I cannot say enough about my experience with the Ghirelli family. They truly view their work as an act of service to Our Lady and Our Lord.
