And can you believe it, I lost my favorite rosary Sunday. :crying: I had it with me at mass, didn't have it when I got home, checked the car, tore apart my purse, checked the lost and found box at church... Gone.
And I had it for ages, at least 25 years. I think it belonged to one of my grandmas. It had wire-wrapped, iridescent, bright pinkish purple beads with a really cool, streamlined, futuristic Mary medal and crucifix.
Ah well... I only hope whoever was blessed enough to find it gets as much devotional use out of it as I did.
Sad times, sad times...
Oh, and I pray the rosary every day.
Poor Karow! I will pray that whoever found it will return it this Sunday to the lost and found. Maybe you can put a notice in the bulletin. I understand how you must feel to have lost such a precious rosary, used by your beloved grandmother.
I would feel horrible if I lost my Gramma's rosary. It is old, dating to the 1930s when she was a young mother, with emerald green, plastic beads, and a tarnished, gold tone Crucifix and medallion. The image of the BVM on the medallion is nearly worn smooth from all the years she used this rosary, from the 1930s to her death in 1986. I keep it on my bedpost for safekeeping. When I feel really in need of her intercession on my behalf, I use her rosary for saying my prayers.
I also have the rosary she had made for me for my First Holy Communion, back in 1964. She had a friend who made beautiful rosaries. Mine is of white moonstones, and is in my jewlery box for safe keeping. It is small, just child sized.
