October is the Month of the Holy Rosary, and there are many ways we can increase our devotion to the Lord by this form of prayer. Let’s get ready for this month of prayer and bring out the rosary beads!
Do you have a favorite rosary? Tell us about it!
Here’s mine: it’s a knotted-twine rosary with a San Damiano (Franciscan) cross on it. Since it’s a knotted rosary rather than a chain of beads, it’s durable, which is a good thing, since it’s been through the washing machine in my pocket more than once!
This rosary, made by friend and fellow CatholicMom.com contributor Barbara Stein, is extra precious to me because I know she prayed with every knot she tied.
I took this picture almost 3 years ago when that rosary was brand-new. It goes where I go, in my pocket or purse. And when I use it to pray, I remember that I’m united in prayer with the friend who made it.
Your turn: tell us about your favorite rosary! Is there a story behind the one you use the most? Please share your answers and experiences in the comment box below.
