My husband recently consulted Our Lady Rosary Makers for tips on making the wire rosaries he sometimes makes for gifts. At the conclusion of one particular web tutorial he discovered the following - read it carefully!
"You are now ready to make good strong rosaries for the missions. Remember that a poorly made rosary is a cause of distractions, and one well made is a source of devotion, and an instrument of salivation. May God bless you in your work for the Queen of Heaven."
Watch out dear daughter and God daughter - these rosaries you will be receiving for 1st Communion are nice and strong!
