Identifying Rosary Painting

by Phil Gadd
(Aurora, OH USA)

I have a painting that looks like the Virgin Mary holding a rosary. However, given the Hail Mary prayers being part of the rosary and that prayer beads were not mentioned with Mary in history, I think that I have a painting of a saint.

Can you please point me to online any online gallery that would have pictures of saints holding a rosary?

Thank you.

The fact that history notes that rosary beads were not known to Mary is not important, those came later. Many depictions place a rosary in Her hand as an indication of her presenting it to us, or to another in the picture. It is just a way to visually present the idea and relation of the rosary with Our Lady.

There are many depictions of Our Lady holding a Rosary, but when one wants to identify a saint it can usually be done by the other items in the picture.Are there any other items the saint is holding? An image search using the search words "saint holding rosary" would be useful for identifying your painting.

Is there anyway you can take a digital picture of the painting and post it so we can help you find the title and artist?

Fourth Rosary Promise
The rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant divine mercies. It will draw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
