Prayer Beads to Honor Saints

posted by acunningham

joanarc_chat.jpgAren’t these lovely? They’re pocket prayer beads in honor of many Catholic saints with specific instructions on what to say or chant as you pray with them. As you know, saints are assigned specific domains: Saint Monica is the patron saint of married women; St. Christopher is the saint of bachelors, travelers, and gardeners; St. Therese is the saint of AIDS sufferers and the sickly; and St. Clare is the saint of needle workers, television and television writers (go figure).
I’m asking the Vatican for a reliable Blogging Saint since blogging five days a week, while mostly delightful, can sometimes seem like Chinese water torture.
GiGiBeads has prayer beads in honor of notable folks like C.S. Lewis and M.L. King, Jr. You can also speak to them about custom rosaries.
If you’re wanting to read about more about saints both ancient and modern-day, “The Saints’ Guide to Happiness: Practical Lessons in the Life of the Spirit” by Robert Ellsberg sounds excellent.

These are lovely, Amy, but the link is broken! I wanted to see if they had a St. Anthony rosary. You’re supposed to pray to him when you lose something, and I’m scatterbrained enough to need a direct hotline. Then again, I’d probably lose the rosary and have to ask for help the old-fashioned way just to find that!

Here’s the GigiBead link: http://gigibeads.net/index.html
We’re fixing the dead link now. I know you’ll find prayer beads to St. Anthony.

It’s funny that Brigid prayed for a lake of beer.

Many thanks. I actually have an even deeper connection with St. Therese (the Little Flower), and she’s the one I really wanted. But I’ll take a look at them all.

CM's Final Posts: You Can Fill the Space
Eighteen years ago, I wrote an article for a magazine that got me called in for a taped interview with a Fox TV morning news anchor. Being an effective communicator and a skillful public speaker was a dream of mine at the time. And still is. After some 30 minutes of prep with the station's hair-and-

Websites to Visit, Blogs to Read
Here are some blogs and websites I like. It's not a complete list. But it's a start. The first is called New Moon Journal and it is written by Michele Bailey-Lessirard, a life coach, collage artist, and "shamanic astrologer." On the opening page of her site, you'll find a little slide show of her am

And Finally, This:
Place your burden at the feet of the Lord of the Universe who accomplishes everything. Remain all the time steadfast in the heart, in the Transcendental Absolute.
