It happened! I went to confession today and there was a line so while waiting I reached into my pocket for my beads and they were gone–I rarely leave the house without them.
So I go to my waistband to switch the Tracfone to silent mode and I had a bit of inspiration, perhaps a nudge from my guardian angel. I made the sign of the cross with my free hand and:
Menu Key :Apostles Creed and the Lord’s Prayer.
Green Key, Menu Key, Red Key: the three Aves.
Glory Be and Fatima Prayer on my own, no keys needed.
For each mystery, the Lord’s Prayer at the Menu Key; for each Ave, I tracked them using the numeric keypad.
The disapproving look from the CCD teacher standing in line with me disappeared when I whispered my explanation.
BTW, I keep religious art as wallpaper for my Tracfone.
