A Memento Mori Rosary is a type of rosary that serves as a reminder of the inevitability of death, encouraging reflection on mortality and the transient nature of life. “Memento Mori” is a Latin phrase that translates to “Remember your mortality.”  Memento Mori Rosaries serve as a visual and tactile reminder to focus on the brevity of life, the importance of spiritual reflection, and the need to live a virtuous and meaningful existence.
