I have finished yet another rosary… Indeed, I imagine I shall be posting photographs of a new rosary almost every day for a while.
This is the Padre Pio rosary. Black Czech glass.
I simply love taking photographs of the rosaries I have made. I try to capture the beauty of prayer… The peacefulness I feel in the presence of God. When I take a photo of a rosary, this is what I attempt to express: “Oh, don’t you just want to pray right now?”
As I recited my rosary last night, I was so grateful. I even had a revelation.
I often worry, as much as it pains me to say this, because worry is a lack of faith, and thus a lack of love for the All-Merciful God. I was anguished in my heart, and then the thought came to me: did I want to worry? Was this an active desire of mine? And I thought, no, it is not.
Do not consent to the worry. I know you do not want to yield to the temptation. This is an imperfection; you are absolved from sin.
Suddenly, the worry had so much less power over me… I was comforted by the Lord’s tender mercy.
