Yes, I do.
I have many rosaries.
I rescue them from thrift shops.
I buy them and repair them.
People often give me rosaries
to repair and put back in circulation.
I end up with
It's not bad.
I only have 6 to repair.
It's time to get to work and make them right.
When I am finished,
I will take these rosaries to Church to be redistributed to those who need them.
The only one that I will keep is one that was made for me specially.
It's the blue one on the right.
My uncle, who is now deceased, had it made for me.
My children's names are on it.
It's special. It's mine.
The rest of the rosaries, when repaired, will be hung with the other rosaries in church.
Now, the rosaries are organized and ready for repair.
If there are any that I cannot repair, I will dig a hole in the ground where few if any people walk,
and I will bury them there.
A priest told me that this was the way to take care of blessed items which are no longer usable.
May is the month of Our Lady.
Pray the Rosary for Peace.
Pray the Rosary for your children.
When you begin your rosary say,
"With these beads, I bind my children to your Immaculate Heart."
Our Lady will take are of them.
