For a while, I have been carrying my late grandmother’s rosary beads. They came to me too late to know much of their history, but I like to think that her brother, a priest, probably blessed them for her. But I’m worried about losing them, so I’m getting a spare set that I hope will someday be an heirloom in their own right.
So I just ordered a custom rosary from the Sisters of Carmel website. It will have cobalt blue glass beads, nickel silver crucifix and parts, and a side medal of St. Raphael, for whom my parish is named. It’s fitting - Raphael is the archangel associated with healing, and I have found healing there. Also, my son received his sacraments there, and I hope he will keep and use this rosary after I pass on.
Does anyone else have a rosary from the Sisters of Carmel, or another custom rosary maker? Are you happy with the quality of it? Do you have any stories to share? Or pictures? When mine gets here, I’ll post a picture, if I can figure out how. Thanks!
