But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
- Psalm 52:8
The olive tree is native to the Holy Land since ancient times, when its oil was used for nourishment, healing, the anointing of prophets and kings and as fuel for the temple lamps in Jerusalem. Today, Christians in Bethlehem carve their cherished olive wood to remind us of Jesus, Mary and the story of our salvation.
This genuine olive wood one decade rosary bracelet is made in Bethlehem and measures 7 ¾" in length with 11mm beads. Center oval bead has the Miraculous Medal attached.
