Tis the time for sponsors. Confirmation and RCIA sponsors play an important role during this period. One unique gift idea for a man is a Franciscan Rosary. It is inspired by St. Francis and often has 15 decades as opposed to the traditional ten decades.
What is most interesting is this rosary is usually made of a simple jute cord and wood. In the modern age the crucifix is hand carved and made of wood that mimics St. Francis original rosary. It is a more masculine rosary and we would recommend this rosary for adult men. A Franciscan Rosary is also very durable because of the cord as opposed to links making it a perfect gift for the most rugged man.
