Rosary Beads and Fashion
I am struck recently by the number of people I see wearing Rosary beads. Is this a 'fashion statement' of some kind? I'm not against people developing a devotion to the Rosary prayer, and to Our Blessed Lady, but somehow it strikes me that this is not why people are wearing the beads.
Not totally sure how much this bothers me, but it does, to some extent. It would be nice to believe that an outbreak of love to Our Lady was behind this 'fad', but I can't be that gullible to believe it is true. I shall keep praying that it happens, though.
