STUDY - HISTORY of the ROSARY
'the telling of the beads' (telling the life of Christ)


HISTORY of the ROSARY
The making of a strong Christian includes study and as a Catholic Christian we not only need to understand the fullness and richness of our heritage and tradition, we need to share it with others.   To know and serve Christ well - we must not only study Scripture but the works and wisdom of saints and of the early church fathers.

JOURNALING OF THE BEAD
JOURNALING THE BEAD is a very special place, a history set in chronological order for you to learn about prayer pebbles that grew into knots and beads on which scripture has been told, counted, prayed, and journaled for centuries. 
 

SIRACH 39:1
Study the generations long past and understand; has anyone hoped in the LORD and been disappointed? (Sirach 2:10)  How different the man who devotes  himself to the study of the law of the Most High!  He explores the wisdom of the men of old and occupies himself with the prophecies;  He treasures the discourses of famous men, and goes to the heart of involved sayings; He studies obscure parables, and is busied with the hidden meaning of the sages. He is in attendance on the great and has entrance to the ruler.
