Going Dancing with the Stars? Take Your Rosary !

1 Apr

 When Olympic gymnast Simone Biles traveled to Los Angeles to compete in Dancing with the Stars  did she bring along her gold medals?  Probably not, but it is highly likely that she brought her rosary.   During her years of competing in national and international events,  the talented gymnast always carried her rosary in her duffel bag.  She told US Weekly, “My mom, Nellie, got me a rosary at church. I don’t use it to pray before a competition. I’ll just pray normally to myself, but I have it there in case.” *

Gold medals are great souvenirs but a rosary is essential.  When you see Simone on the dance floor, know that her rosary is with her.

To learn more about rosaries, read The Rosary Collector’s Guide by Gloria Brady Hoffner and Helen Hoffner.  With over 200 color photographs of rosaries, crosses, crucifixes, and center medals, this 152 page hardcover book published by Schiffer Publishing will answer your questions about the rosary’s history.  From the boxwood rosary owned by England’s King Henry VIII to rosaries honoring Pope Francis, this book will show you unique rosaries throughout history.

The Rosary Collector’s Guide is available at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble.com, the Catholic Faith Store, Rosary Parts, and other book stores, religious article stores, and online sites.
