Saint Pope John Paul II Coat of Arms with the Virgin Mary Center:  This Italian oxidized silver plate, double sided rosary center features the Virgin Mary on one side and Pope John Paul II's official Papal Coat of Arms on the other.   This center is approximately 3/4 inch tall (including rings) and 1/2 inch wide.  No additional cost

Here are the details regarding the symbolism as per the Vatican website: "The coat of arms of Pope John Paul II is intended as an act of homage to the central mystery of Christianity, the Redemption. And so the main representation is a cross, whose form, however, does not correspond to the customary heraldic model. The reason for the unusual placement of the vertical section of the cross is readily apparent if one considers the second object inserted in the coat of arms the large and majestic capital M. This recalls the presence of Mary beneath the cross and her exceptional participation in the Redemption. The great devotion of the Holy Father to the Virgin Mary is manifested in this manner, as it was also expressed in his motto as Cardinal Wojtyla: TOTUS TUUS (All yours). Nor can one forget that within the confines of the ecclesiastical province of Krakow, there is situated the celebrated Marian shrine of Czestochowa, where the Polish people for centuries fostered their filial devotion to the Mother of God."
 
Saint Pope John Paul II Coat of Arms/Miraculous Shield Center:  This Italian oxidized silver plate Miraculous Shield rosary center features the traditional Our Lady of Grace (from the Miraculous medal) on the back and the St. Pope John Paul II’s Papal Coat of Arms on the front (see above for more details about the symbolism). It is approximately 3/4 inch tall (including rings) and 1/2 inch wide. No additional cost.

Pope Francis CenterThis Italian silver plate rosary center features an image of Pope Francis on the front and his Papal Coat of Arms on the back.  It is slightly over 5/8 inch tall (including bottom ring) by 3/8 inch wide (without rings).  No additional cost.

Here are the details regarding the symbolism as per the Vatican website: “Pope Francis has decided to keep his previous coat of arms, chosen at the time of his episcopal consecration and marked by linear simplicity. The blue shield is surmounted by the symbols of papal dignity, the same as those used by his Predecessor Benedict XVI (the mitre above crossed keys of gold and silver, bound by the red cord). At the top of the shield is the emblem of Pope's religious order, the Society of Jesus: a radiant sun carrying the letters in red, ihs, the monogram of Jesus. The letter h is crowned by a cross; beneath the letters are three black nails. Lower down on the shield there is a star and spikenard flower. The star, according to ancient armorial tradition, symbolizes the Virgin Mary, the Mother of Christ and the Church; while the spikenard symbolizes St Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church. In traditional Hispanic iconography, St Joseph is shown with a vine in his hand. By bearing these images on his shield, the Pope communicates his special devotion to the Most Holy Virgin and to St Joseph. 

The motto of Pope Francis is taken from a passage from the venerable Bede, Homily 21 (CCL 122, 149-151), on the Feast of Matthew, which reads: Vidit ergo Jesus publicanum, et quia miserando atque eligendo vidit, ait illi, ‘Sequere me’. [Jesus therefore sees the tax collector, and since he sees by having mercy and by choosing, he says to him, ‘follow me’.] This homily is a tribute to Divine Mercy and is read during the Liturgy of the Hours on the Feast of St Matthew. This has particular significance in the life and spirituality of the Pope. In fact, on the Feast of St Matthew in 1953, the young Jorge Bergoglio experienced, at the age of 17, in a very special way, the loving presence of God in his life. Following confession, he felt his heart touched and he sensed the descent of the Mercy of God, who with a gaze of tender love, called him to religious life, following the example of St Ignatius of Loyola. Once he had been ordained a Bishop, H.E. Mons. Bergoglio, in memory of this event that signified the beginning of his total consecration to God in His Church, chose, as his motto and as his programme of life, the words of St Bede: miserando atque eligendo. This he has chosen to keep in his papal coat of arms.
