Just sharing with you a diagram that my son just created for his blog as an aid in praying the rosary... I thought it was pretty cool!
The boys just made some lovely rosaries purchased at this site. They are rosary junkies, these kids. They love themselves a rosary and as Timmy says, "You can never have too many!"
The rosaries are beautiful keepsakes! Made on Our Lady's Feast Day and just posting now!
Here we go:
The black hearts represent the habit of the "Black Monks" of St Benedict's rule.Legend has it that when St Benedict made the sign of the cross over a poisoned goblet of wine, the goblet shattered. The purple heats of the third decade are symbolic of this miracle.
Kev is making the Our Lady of Guadalupe rosary. The variety of colors represent the Aztec nation.
Kev and Timmy have a particular affinity for Our Lady of Guadalupe, as they have been captivated by the enormous painting of Our Lady in the vestibule of our church and further, by the miracle of Our Lady's image on Juan Diego's tilma.
As founder and editor of the newspaper for our former Catholic homeschool group, Kev chose the classic image of Our Lady, Patroness of the Americas and of the Unborn, for the cover of his inaugural issue! Given a wealth of online images from which to chose in creating the paper, how proud we were/are that he chose Our Lady!
Here it is:
And here's the editor looking over the final copy....June 2012
Thanks, friends, for stopping in!
Have a lovely night!
Until next time, peace.
