(I posted this in the Spirituality forum in response to a question/answer about using an MP3 player in the PEA Chapel. I hope an apologist will answer it for me.)
Okay, now going to Adoration, as in the Perpetual Adoration Chapel, which is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - the reason to go is to spend time with Jesus? When we go, it is okay to pray the Rosary, a Marian devotion, read a book, very, personal and individual, and listen to one’s MP3 player, also personal and individual. What about working on mission rosaries? I am able to make the knots, string the beads, etc. kind of the same way that I crochet - mindlessly - and am able to talk to Jesus while I make them. Would this be an appropriate activity in the Chapel? I am scheduled one hour a week and I like to drop in whenever I am in the area. I carry my mission rosary supplies with me everywhere I go because I never know when I might find time to work on them. Would my time in the Adoration Chapel be such a time? I in no way wish to bring scandal by doing so.
