Born in Caguas, Puerto Rico, Carlos Manuel Rodríguez is the only Puertorrican beatified person, and the first beatified layperson of the Caribbean. His advocacy towards the renewal of the liturgy at a time when little understood the ritual, was one of his most important tasks, making him one of the most influential voices in what is now known as the Second Vatican Council. Because of this, he is considered a pre-conciliar apostle of what came to be the Sacrosanctum concillium. B. Carlos Manuel was actively insisting on modifying the liturgy to promote a greater participation of the faithful, and to be better understood by them, offering it in the vernacular language. His mission was focused on education and the promulgation of the faith through his own publications, for which he invested all his money. He did all of that while battling a terrible disease that eventually turned into cancer. His phrase "We live for that Night" is the setting of his favorite time of the year: The Easter Vigil. This rosary bracelet features faceted crystals, hematites, enameled metals and the FIRST AND ONLY Italian devotional medal of Blessed Carlos Manuel Rodríguez with the distinctive Devozioni by Krystalos logo.
