Rosary Beads

Praying the rosary is often practiced by Catholics. I remember my college days, I lived in a dorm that is owned by the school. I am one of the student assistants who was assigned at the quarter where the Priest administrators lives. Fr. Mike, an SVD Priest, President of Divine Word College of Legazpi back then, would say the rosary with us (me and other three SA's) every weekend.  I actually miss saying the rosary, I hope that I would be able to do  it again with my kids.

But anyhow, the four of us here at home has it's own rosary beads.  These were all given to us by friends.

  1. I think the Protestants (and I am one) miss out by not having rosaries.

  2. I haven't seen a rosary for quite some time. I'm sure my grandmother had one and I wonder where it got to. Love the different designs and colours of yours.

  5. I am no longer Catholic myself, however just like my Grandmother did with her Rosary Beads and she remained being a Catholic for many years, she made her first Rosary out of a necklace, my sister made my last rosary out of a necklace for me 3 years ago.

  9. I am a protestant, but I have heard people praying the rosary. I know it now by heart but I think a real prayer coming from the heart is more valuable for me. Besides we don't pray to Mary, but to God in Jesus' name. We admire Mary as the mother of God's Son. She has suffered so much when her son was killed.Of course if people want to pray a rosary, do so. You won't harm others. Your rosaries are very beautiful. We all pray "Our Father...",the prayer Jesus gave us.

  15. Praying the rosary can be done by anyone and it is calming! I think the Hail Mary is one of the most beautiful prayers ever. Yours are just lovely. Blessings, Nancy

  21. I'm Catholic too and collect rosary beads. Have to admit that if I say a rosary it's usually because someone has died or I'm praying during a crisis... I said a Hail Mary for someone today though and it was a comfort. God bless. Jennifer

  23. Happy Pink Saturday. Very nice way you photographed the beads w/pink. I'm not Catholic, so I can't relate to the beads, but the Lord is always available for our hearts and prayers.
    PS thanks for coming by on Blue Monday recently and leaving me a note.
    Thanks, Jenn

  24. Having gone to boarding school with Dominican nuns, I am used to seeing those simplistic rosaries they would flip in circles as they walked. These are so pretty and way more appealing to the eye. Everything seems to change over time...even rosaries. genie
