The Beads
The Hail Mary beads of the five decades of the rosary represent the fifty states of the United States of America. Each double-sided bead features Mary Immaculate of the Miraculous Medal on one side, and the name of one of the fifty states one the other, thus consecrating each state to the Blessed Mother as the rosary is prayed.

The antiphon Hail Mary beads are engraved with the three letters U S A, recalling Pope Pius IX’s declaration in 1847 of Mary Immaculate as “Patroness of the United States of America”.
