lost rosary


#1

is it bad to loose a rosary? imean not break but just totaly loose it? i used to carry around the glow in the dark one i got from religuos ed (like years ago) for my first communion. but have long since lost it. is that bad? i was young and not very bright and usualy lost things. i didnt throw it away but just never found it. and is it appropriate to just buy new one?

People lose things - part of being fallible! As long as you didn’t intentionally throw it away or something.

I’ve lost rosaries before. I just hope that someone might find it, get curious and discover the church. God works in mysterious ways you know.

For heaven sakes go buy another rosary. I have dozens of them all around my house if you were here, I would give you a couple. If you are overly concerned about loosing another, don’t get it blessed. I have little plastic ones my children played with as toddlers. We never blessed them and the children learned to use them. When they were old enough to appreciate a nice one, we got them one.

before I cleaned house last week I could have put my hands on at least half a dozen rosaries, most in cases. this morning I could not find one except the one by my bedside, which I did not want to take outside because it belongs to MIL. I just wanted a rosary to take on my walk. found one of the cheap plastic ones in my truck. beats me where I put the other 5-6 rosaries.

Each Rosary of mine is special and has so much meaning.
My favorite is a simple wood Rosay all brown and perfect for my fingers as I pray. It was given to me by a Priest who had just returned from Medjugorie.
I have lost this Rosary at least 5 times and each time I pray to St. Helen, the Saint who found the True Cross of Jesus and immediately it somehow reappears.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
I love you, save souls.

Well, pray that it will be useful to someone who find it.
Once, I found a rosary when I was waiting for a bus. It strengthened my faith. It’s a small (a decade only). simple rosary. Now, I bring it everywhere I go.

You never know what God could use it for. :slight_smile:
Btw, it’s my 500th post!
