 PROVIDING SUPPLIES, 
INSTRUCTIONS AND ENCOURAGEMENT 
We believe, when crafting things of God, each should be of the highest aesthetic and artistic beauty our hearts and hands can provide with the materials available to us. He deserves the very best fruits of our labor. Let us be inspired by the works of Joseph as he taught Jesus his trade, carefully  with responsibility and honor.

HEBREWS 12:28-29
  "Let us show gratitude by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe - for our God is a consuming fire"

WHEN BEADS 
ARE MADE INTO ROSARIES
SOMETHING WONDERFUL HAPPENS
When the new beads come in, we  are all very excited to see what they look like.  They are so much more beautiful here than they were in Tucson on the tables where they are heaped up in great dusty piles.  But when they become rosaries, something even more wonderful happens.
+
Its something like a ship when it is first built. First it is a pile of material then it becomes an inert hull. But when the ship is Christened, in the US Navy it traditionally becomes 'alive' - as her crew goes on board and stands at rest.  That is when 'she' gains her 'soul'.
+
Well, beads seem to have a similar experience. Except when they are made into rosaries, the beads change - they just come alive - as if they are now what they were made to be.  Then, when they are blessed by a Priest, they take on a new aura of life.  But when they are prayed, that is when they - the beads truly become most beautiful as they are fulfilling their destiny!  Rosary Workshop Guild
