The Church Militant Combat Rosary is based upon the original pull chain rosary that was commissioned and procured by, believe it or not, the U.S. government and issued by the military, upon request, to soldiers serving in World War I. Some of these rosaries were also seen in WWII. Veterans recognize them as "Service Rosaries." Made of strong metal pull chain, this rosary is meant to endure. Special locking jump rings add to this rosary's toughness. This rosary's endurance is meant to highlight the hopeful words of Psalm 136: "His love endures forever." This Combat Rosary's use of the Pardon Crucifix, Miraculous Medal and St. Benedict Medal makes it a powerful spiritual assault weapon against evil forces attempting to separate us from the love of God and His will for our lives

The Rosary is not the prayer for every single occasion, but praying it every day brings you into close contact with the central events of the life of Jesus Christ, always calling you back to the moment when our salvation began, when the angel Gabriel proposed to Mary that she cooperate in bringing God into the world, and to the prayer Jesus taught us to pray: the Our Father. The Rosary is an especially helpful prayer when travelling or when distracted, because its structure protects the mind from wandering back to our problems, keeping it fixed on our Lord.

I bought this for my husband for his birthday last year before it was offered on Amazon. If you want a GREAT pocket rosary, one that is tough yet beautiful, this is the one for you. He carries it in his pocket and it's just as beautiful as the day we received it. We got the gold, with a lovely Marine medal for my manly Marine. Buy it! You want it! In fact, here's a hint, buy two. Once my daughter saw my husband's she wanted one for herself! I might just get her one for Christmas,
This rosary is not just for men--though it is certainly sturdy and manly. I'm a woman and mine lives in its pouch in my purse (when I'm not using to pray). I also got one for someone I sponsored when he joined the church and he loves his. He had been in the military and appreciated that aspect of this rosary.
