I purchase a rosary.
I have it blessed by a priest.
I have possession of said rosary.
By Canon Law, do I have legal ownership of said rosary?
For example (this may raise another issue or two):
Suppose I place the rosary in a casket containing a deceased Catholic (who died in a state of grace) at the funeral ‘showing’ with the intention that the rosary will be buried with the deceased,
Now another person removes that rosary from the casket during the ‘showing’.
When accused of stealing, that person maintains that no one “owns” a sacramental and so that person is not guilty of theft.
Example two: a person simply removes said rosary from my posession and maintains that they are not guilty of theft because no one legally “owns” a sacramental.
