I received a rosary today in the mail (with a request for a donation). I don’t mind getting the requests but I don’t like when people send me sacramentals I won’t use. We have plenty of rosaries already (and I prefer the more traditional ones–this one has 3 medals of JPII).
I usually take extras of these to leave in our chapel, but I am uncomfortable with this one. I go to Mass on post so our chapel is used by all denominations. With the misunderstandings that abound about praying the rosary and the intercessory prayer, I am afraid that leaving this could send the wrong message to a non-Catholic who sees it.
Do you have any suggestions?
