Thus saith The Crescat: "October is traditionally the month of the Holy Rosary. The rosary is one of the most obvious outward signs of our Catholic identity. I've also noticed that every rosary has a story and holds a special place in the heart of the owner. All you have to do is comment on someone's rosary, remarking about it's beauty or uniqueness. What usually follows is a brief story of how and where they acquired it. Some used to belong to a special person, some were purchased on a pilgrimage, while others may have been blessed by a priest who is a good friend."
