I’m not the original owner, so I don’t know for sure if it’s been blessed or not.
My grandmother, a non-Catholic, acquired a solid gold rosary. I don’t know the exact circumstances of how or why she had it, but I suspect it was part of some kind of estate sale type of thing.
After she passed away, my mother gave it to me as the only practicing Catholic in the family. I never had it blessed, and rarely used it to pray - it somehow just never felt right and I have several other rosaries that have meaning for me. So this one has been in its case in a drawer for almost 30 years.
Since my Grandmother wasn’t Catholic and in no way intended it to be the gift of a sacramental object to me, I’ve considered selling it for it’s gold value. Is it alright to do this? I read the link to the Sisters of Carmel: Information on Sacramentals and from that it seems that any blessing it may have had was removed when it was previously sold (but, I have no way of being 100% sure it was specifically purchased).
I’m not desperate for money and don’t need to do this, but just thought I’d ask. Thanks in advance for advice.
