MEDALS BY EGINO WEINERT
Medals are held by 9 beads, called a 'niner' or now available as a 'tenner' (10 beads) - an old tradition of the church as the saint who is imaged on the medal is the intercessor for your prayers - one Ave, one Pater, one Glory Be on each set. Great for a busy day!  Inspired by an old chaplet seen in a Munich antique shop. Egino Weinert (Germany) is a favorite of the Vatican.

23+ YEARS ON THE INTERNET
(May 25, 1994)

In 1996 I discovered the world wide web and you (Rosary Workshop) and the guild!!!  What a wonderful group of prayer warriors you all are.  I thank the Lord Jesus for you and your world wide prayer ministry often.  The blessings our Lady have extended to 1,000 s of people because of the prayer beads you have sent out all over the world.  May your blessings from our Lord and Lady out weigh your burdens.'  Happy Birthday. Fr Joe (PA)
+
Thanks Father Joe, you were our very first customer and our first boost of encouragement!   Our very first customer!  How did you find us?  We knew nothing about subscribing to search engines!  We were barley up! Still building! Had no idea that our brand new website URL was like having an unlisted phone number that no one knew about. And now we know this little mystery was born from above. 
+
As we look back on these years, we are very grateful and truly blessed by your continuing encouragement and friendship as well as the greatest customers and friends in the world who have followed you over the years. (the Grammas at the Workshop)

TO MARY, THE LIGHT OF HOPE
Immaculate Heart of Mary, help us to conquer the menace of evil, which so easily takes root in the hearts 
of the people of today, and whose immeasurable effects already weigh down upon our modern world and
seem to block the paths toward the future.
++++++++++++++++++++++
From famine and war,
deliver us.
From nuclear war, from incalculable self-destruction, 
from every kind of war,
deliver us.
From sins against human life from its very beginning,
deliver us.
From hatred and from the demeaning of the dignity 
of the children of God,
deliver us.
From every kind of injustice in the life of society, 
both national and international,
deliver us.
From readiness to trample on the commandments of God,
deliver us.
From attempts to stifle in human hearts the very truth of God,
deliver us.
From the loss of awareness of good and evil,
deliver us.
From sins against the Holy Spirit,
deliver us.
++++++++++++++++++++++
Accept, O Mother of Christ, this cry laden with the sufferings of all individual human beings, 
laden with the suffering of whole societies.  Help us with the power of the Holy Spirit conquer all sin:
+
individual sin and the "sin of the world," sin in all its manifestations.
+
Let there be revealed once more in the history of the world
 the infinite saving power of the redemption:
+
the power of merciful love.
 May it put a stop to evil.
 May it transform consciences.
+
May your Immaculate Heart reveal for all the light of hope. Amen.
+
John Paul II




~ FIRST U.S. APPARITION ~
FIRST APPROVED 
APPARITION IN THE U.S
(approved "worthy of belief" on Dec 8, 2010)
On Saturday, October 8, 1859, Our Lady quietly appeared to a very frightened 28 year old, Sister Adele in the small town of Robinsonville,  northeast of Green Bay WI.  She appeared two more times on the following Sunday, October 9th. She told Sister Adele she was "Our Lady of Good Help / Queen of Heaven." Her message was clear (and speaks to us today as we do not know what the future holds):
+
OUR LADY'S MESSAGE TO SISTER ADELE
  "I am the Queen of Heaven, who prays for the conversion of sinners, and I wish you to do the same.  You received Holy Communion this morning, and that is well. But you must do more. 
+
Make a general confession and offer Communion for the conversion of sinners.  If they do not convert and do penance, my son will be obliged to punish them."
 +
HER LAST WORDS TO SISTER WERE:
  "Go and fear nothing, I will help you."
+
SISTER ADELE FOLLOWED HER ADVICE
Sister Adele followed Our Lady's advice for the conversion of sinners by working in the vinyards of the Lord, encouraging everyone she met to go to confession and return to Mass.  She taught children how to bless themselves and pray the rosary and taught them their catechism. She talked with parents about their faith. At this time, Wisconsin was still frontier land with few priests.
+
CONSECRATED TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN
By 1869, there was a new boarding school, a convent and a new chapel on 5 acres of land in Robinsonville with a little white picket fence surrounding it and it was consecrated to the Blessed Virgin.
