How the Rosary Can Bring Calm in the Storm

Do you ever battle anxiety?

I do.

As a child, my parents called me a worrier.

The other day, the angst was high.  I know we are all going through this strange time, but some days I just really wish I could call in reinforcements to help with my 3 small, extremely active and never tired children.

That night, we prayed a family rosary.

For the first time, the twins were not completely out of control while we prayed.  Our 7 year old son didn’t complain about doing all 5 decades and when it was over, I felt a sense of calmness and peace that only praying the Rosary brings me.

The Rosary calms my soul.

It slows me down from all my thoughts.

It places me with my heavenly mother who wants nothing but to unite us with her Son.

And in that silence and calmness, I feel His Peace. His Love. His Power. Jesus is there and the chaos is gone. At least for a few moments.  Then, shenanigans as we navigate each child to his or her bed.

The Rosary is a true gift and prayer.

Especially in a world that distracts us from God and a culture that does not value silence and stillness.

I strongly recommend that you give this meditation on so many Scripture passages and the graces that are poured out from heaven from it. Many members of our community create beautiful Rosaries.

Rosaries are still a great Catholic gift.

  • Buy one for a friend.
  • Gift one to yourself.
  • Pray for our world;
  • for Christian unity,
  • our Pope and all our priests;
  • and for your very personal intentions.

Here are just some beautiful Rosaries devout, faithful and joyful Catholics make:

The Perfect Rosary for a Millenial

Healing Hail Marys

Handmade Rosaries | Grow closer to Jesus through Mary

Shop owner, Lexie Metzler, describes herself as a 20-something-year-old Jersey girl who loves her faith and inspiring others. Lexie opened her shop less than a year ago and immediately volunteered to give each person attending the Prayer Wine Chocolate Retreat a handmade rosary that was unique and had an element of youth and joy you don’t often see in a Rosary.

Rosaries for the Nature Lover

SaongJai Rosaries

The shop owner, Aleesa McCarthy, explains:

In Thai, the name for our shop, SaongJai means two hearts because this endeavor is something my sister and I have set out to do together dedicating it to the two Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

We take custom orders for rosaries, jewelry, crucifixes, and other Catholic things. Our rosaries are heirloom quality being hand made beaded in the style of knotted pearl stringing.

One of our favorites is the Waves of Blue Rosary!

As the colors of the sea change, this pretty rosary mimics the waves. The Our Father beads are a crystal studded sea shells while the Hail Mary beads are shades of blue faceted glass beads. Surrounded by silver toned accents, center, and 2 medal crucifix.
