Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, Pray for Us

.

St. Padre Pio: “The Rosary is
the weapon.”



To learn more about the rosary and the prayers, visit here (for an audio rosary, click on the Mysteries in the sidebar).

And, if you leave a kind word in the combox before midnight Thursday, I'll put your name in the hat for this rosary:



This five-decade rosary is made from Mother of Pearl glass beads, iridescent crystal Czech glass beads, and dark rose pearlized Japanese glass seed beads. The Miraculous center is silver plated, as is the ornate crucifix. To see more of my rosaries, go here.

  1. Thank you for helping me clean my grandmother's Mother of Sorrows rosary! I soaked it in warm water with dish soap for an hour, then used a soft rag to wipe it off before rinsing. It's MUCH cleaner. Unfortunately, my grandmother wore away much of the texture of the medals, so I still can't see the whole thing! Obviously this rosary was much-treasured and well-used.

  3. Barbara,
    Your rosaries are beautiful. As a fairly new (1 1/2 years) Catholic, I've just begun in the past 8 months to grow closer to Our Lady. Oh, the joy I was missing out on before! Bless you!

  6. Such a pretty rosary. I am a convert, too. I find it difficult to make the time to say the rosary. Not too happy with myself. I do say it every Sunday morning because I get to church early enough for the small group of us to say it together.

  14. Barb:

    The love you have for our Lady and Her rosary is so obvious...you've once again lovingly rendered an absolutely exquisite creation. God bless you...how many beads have been "told" because of your devotion. Happy Feast of the Most Holy Rosary!

  19. I just discovered your blog from Waltzing Matilda--what a lovely place to visit.

    The rosary is gorgeous. I have recently begun attending Catholic services, and I don't have a rosary. I have been planning to make one--yours is lovely.

  22. Count me in as someone from Waltzing Matilda. That is a beautiful rosary. As much as I would like to win it, if I win I would like Lydia to have it so she will be able to have a rosary of her own.
