rosary workshop - my telling of the beads
RENEWING, STRENGTHENING

 Like links being repaired on a broken rosary - friendships are restored. Families, friends and even nations are mended through the rosary. If you have a story about the rosary to share, please sent it so others may read it and be strengthened, too.

A FORMER CLIENT   -   SHE BROUGHT ME TO CHURCH



A FORMER CLIENT
GODS LITTLE SURPRIZES
"some local stores are selling the rosaries [I make] regularly---One store owner sold her favorite rosary of mine to a woman who ended up giving it as a gift to the store owner's former family counselor, whom she had not seen in years.  When she came into the store to see where the rosary came from, the counselor found her former client behind the counter!  And this, through a rosary made by another family counselor no less (me!)--mere coincidence?--or is that the graceful finger of God we see at work bringing people together...?"  A rosary-maker in California



SHE BROUGHT ME TO CHURCH
MY FIRST SERIOUS STEP!
I started the Rosary Workshop on the internet in 96 and some wonderful people have come to visit!  Recently, I received an email from a woman who simply said, 'Is your mom's name Helen C?'  Well, when I looked at the email address I knew immediately who it was! When I was 13, we moved to Pittsburgh and almost immediately Joan and I became friends. She was Catholic.  I had always wanted to go to the Catholic church but simply did not know anyone who was Catholic!  So she took me took me to my first Mass and I was in awe!

This was the first serious step in becoming a Catholic.  (It would be another 10 years before I was able to take classes at the Naval Academy where my 'husband to be' was a midshipman.) Joan and I have had so much fun catching up with lost years - and to find our love for the Church has only grown over the years has been such a blessing. Joan is a strong supporter of the Right to Life as am I and we are able to share Christs love for his people in so many enriching ways. God is so good!

... Joan's email response ...
I remember well the day we walked up to Sacred Heart Church (you were astounded that we could just walk in) and as soon as we entered, the hush and the presence of the Real Presence overtook us.  The light coming through the stained glass windows to the right of us had those dust thingys floating down.  That was the only light except for the sanctuary light......
....... and the huge cross on a red background with the gold tabernacle  in the middle under the cross.  It was quite a sight and since you were such an artistic and visual person, I can only imagine what your perception was.  Mine was that Jesus was watching us as we were admiring His house.

Those were the wonderfully simple days and we were fortunate to have had them.  So many people did not.  Then when you moved and I walked to East Liberty to see you.....we lit the stove for your observant Jewish neighbors.  Do you remember?  Joan N (FL)
