St Francis Rosary Chaplet and Rosary Beads

Labradorite Chaplet with Saint Francis

This last week was a pretty interesting time with the election of the new Pope. I know this happened just a few years back with the last Pope, but at that time I was working a thankless high stress job and wasn't able to pay attention very well. The new Pope seems like a very good choice and I love the name he chose. Saint Francis was always a favorite of mine, as he is for many people.

I was very moved as I watched and paid close attention to the news coverage of the Conclave and the election of the new Pope. I was moved by the tradition and ritual of the event, and grateful to be able to witness Pope Francis's first words and prayers. All Christians should pray for this new leader of the Catholic Church.

Rosary Beads and other types of prayer beads can be an important part in developing and maintaining a relationship with the Divine. Not only are they beautiful to behold, they are useful in assisting that daily remembrance, whether it is a visual remembrance or by physical touch in saying prayers. That daily affirmation of God or a Higher Divine presence is worship and building a solid relationship with God.

"Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance. Where there is patience and humility, there is neither anger nor vexation. Where there is poverty and joy, there is neither greed nor avarice. Where there is peace and meditation, there is neither anxiety nor doubt."
-The Counsels of the Holy Father St. Francis, Admonition 27
