Prayer beads begin with a cross, which reminds us of Jesus' sacrifice on the cross. Among the beads, there are five special ones that are larger or different in appearance than the others. These five beads form a cross when viewed from the front and are called the "cruciform beads."

After the invitation bead, the first bead for prayer is called the "salvation bead," which reminds us of Jesus' gift of salvation and eternal life. The other four cruciform beads remind us of the four Gospels.

Between the cruciform beads are seven smaller beads called "week beads," one for each day of the week. They remind us of God's creation work in seven days. The number seven is significant for Christians as it symbolizes spiritual perfection. To learn more about this, please visit:
