Frequently Asked Questions
The name "Para-Prayers" comes from the material we use in making our rosaries. We use paracord, otherwise known as parachute cord, which is an extremely durable rope made from nylon with multiple intertwined strands that provide immense strength relative to the size of the cord. Paracord was originally an invention of the U.S. Military to serve as cord for parachutes and since has been developed to different sizes and weights, making it extremely versital.

What exactly is paracord?
Paracord, formally known at "parachute cord", is a type of rope that, in its orignial use, is used with parachutes and other survival situations such as rock climbing (that is the same cord used in our Survivalist Rosary). As for all the others, paracord comes in many different weight and diameter options from which we order our paracord for the other rosaries that we create.
What type of knots are used to make the "beads"?
Triple and quadruple overhand knots are used to make the beads, best example is to look at The Survivalist to see exactly what the knots look like.
What is "Totus Tuus"?
"I place this moment, like all other things, in the hands of the Mother of my Master: Totus Tuus. In these same motherly hands I leave everything and everyone with whom my life and my vocation have brought me into contact." -John Paul II
Aside from being a major theme of Pope St. John Paul II's papacy, totus tuus orignially comes from St. Louis de Montfort who famously wrote, "Totus tuus ego sum et omnia mea tua sunt…I am totally yours and all that I have is yours" focusing on devotion to Christ through his Blessed Mother.
