rosary beads

 

 

 

Our lady of the Rosary

Our mother’s devotion
to another mother’s
devotion to a son
crucified for us all.

A garland of roses
a string of prayers
to Mary for her son
and for her own sons.

Joyful Mysteries
Sorrowful Mysteries
Glorious Mysteries

devotion

desperation
flagellation
conflagration

she douses the flames with meditation while
rubbing well worn beads between thumb and finger

Rosary beads
worry beads.
