The purpose of the Mission Rosary is to pray for world peace and conversion through Catholic missionary efforts around the world. Each color of the rosary represents a different part of the world, united in Christ:
GREEN for the forest and grasslands of Africa
BLUE for the ocean surrounding the Islands of the Pacific
WHITE symbolizing Europe, the seat of the Holy Father, Shepherd of the world
RED calling to mind the fire of faith that brought missionaries to the Americas
YELLOW, the morning light of the East, for Asia
Each is durably crafted for many years of use. Their value price allows them to be perfect giveaways or used as fundraisers in support of missionary efforts in all parts of the world.
