The Creation of the Rosary Lariat
While working at the jewelry store
I would always quietly recite the rosary
with my Chaplet, a single strand of 10 beads attached to a crucifix (one decade rosary).
Every time I finished the 10 Hail Mary prayers
I would have to flip over the crucifix
for continual prayer, which made me think
how nice it would be if I could design a rosary where the crucifix and medal would stay stationary. This is when I thought of "the bail".
I felt the bail would allow the beads
to flow through while the crucifix and medal stayed stationary. Because of this,
continual prayer would be made a lot easier...
whether at work, in the car
At first I made the "Rosary Lariat"
for my own personal use, but then I did some research and found that Pope John Paul II
had been looking for ways to generate
renewed interest in the rosary
and that Pope Benedict XVI continued in this quest. Because of their call I have decided to produce and sell these newly designed rosaries.
I am hoping this new design which incorporates the traditional and the new,
will help more people find ways
to pray the rosary.
This is how and why
the "Rosary Lariat" was created.

A "Rosary Lariat" Chooses Life
"I call heaven and earth today
to witness against you:
I have set before you
life and death,
the blessing and the curse.
Choose life, then,

Gary Hughes was born and raised in BayShore, New York. He studied to be a Franciscan priest, attending the minor seminary and the novitiate year, before deciding to follow his lay vocation. At C.W. Post College where he studied for a degree in music, Gary sang in the college's renowned choir which toured Europe and the United States and performed in such places as The Vatican, Westminster Abbey, Tully Hall and Carnegie Hall.
Gary came to Chicago in 1977
where he gravitated to the jewelry business.
The creation of the Rosary Lariat
is a synthesis of his jewelry expertise,
religious background, and his devotion
to the rosary and the world
that has been called upon
to pray it.
