WORKING TOGETHER
As Christians we are brothers and sisters in Christ. We must work together and through one another.  If we don't, we will miss his plan. If we judge each other's  beliefs we are living in the destructive environment of our own words. We must trust the Lord and try to live in his work for us - not ours ... and share the gifts given to each of us ...
+
ALL THINGS WORK TO THE GOOD
... Our gifts are to be given back to the Lord before they may truly produce his fruit.  We are each a part of a design of God's keeping. We must each be patient as it is in His time all things work to the good!

ACTS 4:31-32
 As they prayed, the place where they were shook, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness. The community of believers was of one heart and mind, and no one claimed that any of his possessions were his own ...

~ PROTESTANTS and the ROSARY ~

  
DO PROTESTANTS 
PRAY THE ROSARY?
We receive many emails that start off ' I would love to make rosaries but I am a Protestant - is it ok? Some ask, 'I want to pray the rosary but do not know if I should,' is it just a 'Catholic thing'. What a treasure! How beautiful it is that people are discovering the rosary regardless of their faith.  Even had one lady ask if praying the rosary would make her 'Catholic'. No, praying the rosary will not make one become a Catholic, and Yes, it is ok to pray or make a the rosary regardless of ones faith. The rosary is simply made up of scriptural passages that tell the life of Jesus. A powerful way to count prayers and meditate on Him. It makes one realize that to fully know and understand who Jesus is, you must know scripture - both Old and New Testaments.

HOW DOES MARY FIT IN?
I was raised a Protestant and could not quite figure out how Mary fit into all of this - other than the fact that she takes our hand and tells us the story of her son like any proud mom would do. I heard a man say once about Mary, 'if she was good enough for Jesus, she is good enough for me.' That really stuck in my heart and made me realize that if Jesus is my brother, then Mary is my mother. I have noticed that more and more Protestants are understanding this mystery of Mary and are embracing her roll without feeling it is a 'Catholic thing'or that they are putting Mary before Jesus when actually one of her most famous quotes in scripture (Cana, sign of the first miracle) is 'do as He tells you'.


 
WE ARE ALL 
THE FAMILY OF GOD
This is great news as we are all the family of God, the body of Christ, regardless of our church preferences. The Ave (Hail Mary) and the Pater (Our Father) beads simply keep track of these passages so we can meditate on this, the greatest of all stories.
 

WISDOM 1:13-15
For he fashioned all things that they might have being;  and the creatures of the world are wholesome, And there is not a destructive drug among them nor any domain of the nether world on earth,  For justice is undying.
