Rosaries, Light The Corners of My Mind....!

...misty water colored ros'riiiies, of the way we...

Ahem.

Recently Terri asked if I had finished the rosary that I had briefly spoken about a few weeks ago.

I have. As a matter of fact, all of these are new since last we talked about this subject.

Here you are.

Please note that all of these rosaries are of the Episcopalian/Anglican sort. If any of you are adherents to the Roman church, I'd be happy to make a set for you, for a nominal, very reasonable fee.

Those really are beautiful. Would you ever make plan ol' necklaces?

Also does your nominal fee go to a favorite charity, your church, or you? Hmmmmm.....

Okay, I'll be completely honest here - I had NO IDEA that Episcopalians/Anglicans prayed the rosary. Huh. Okay, that's my new fact for the day.

I be of the Roman persuasion, so what are the differences in the two?

Songbird beat me to it - I was going to ask "what's the difference" as well. Beautiful work, GF! :) ~ Biker Chick Janet

SMID,

The money goes to the purchase & shipping of more beads and other construction materials, the shipping of the finished product, and for the production of a pretty cool hand-made item.

Songbird,

Anglo-Catholics (Episcopalians) don't pray the rosary as it is done in the roman church. The term rosary just follows from it's similarity to the rosary of the roman church.

The differences? The RC rosary has a total of 60 beads... the anglican has 33, which is representative of the life of Christ. THe biggest difference is that the anglican "rosary" doesn't have a required set of prayers.

Here is something to have a look at:

They are beautiful. I want one, even though I would have no idea what to do with one. Would it be bad to carry one anyway?

We already have so many rosaries ...
but I have to say I'm tempted to have you make me one!!!! I'm Roman Catholic ~ and yes.. I still belong to Focus on the Family.

We have a CD of the rosary being said ... it is beautiful.. peaceful and calming.
