On our Facebook page this week, Lisa Hendey shared some of Pope Francis’ remarks from his Wednesday audience this week. Pope Francis taught us more about why he loves meditating upon the Rosary when he said, ““May this simple Marian prayer show you, young people, the way to give life to God’s will in your lives; dear sick people, love this prayer because it brings consolation for the mind and the heart; and dear newly wedded spouses, may it represent a privileged moment of spiritual intimacy within your new family”. Read his remarks and tell us why YOU love praying the Rosary!
Tell us about your favorite Rosary!
I have some beautiful bead Rosaries, including one made by CatholicMom contributor Barbara Stein, who offers Rosaries and other religious jewelry in her Etsy shop. But the Rosary I keep in my pocket is one of two knotted-twine Rosaries, which are quite durable and don’t suffer any ill effects if they happen to go through the laundry in my pocket!
Both these Rosaries were made for me by friends, so that makes them precious to me. (Barbara Stein made the red one. It’s over 4 years old and still going strong!)
