Rosary #22 • Sat, Jan 9, 2021

This is a simple rosary, with 8mm polystyrene plastic beads. The 53 Hail Mary beads are like a metallic blue color, while the 6 Our Father beads are a glossy jet black. I just love how these beads shine, even though they are plastic; and I especially love this shade of blue. The centerpiece is the Miraculous Medal, which features the inscription "O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee". The back features the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, among other symbols. The crucifix is a traditional ornate image of Jesus on the cross. The chain is stainless steel. Overall, it's a very light rosary.

UPDATE: The day I completed this rosary, my high school classmate, Joe, posted a photo of a 1933 Ford that he just purchased. The colors matched exactly. So I hit 'em up, we met for dinner, and the rosary now hangs from his rear view mirror.
