Medjugorje Rosary


My object is a Medjugorje rosary I received when I was an eighth grader at Jesuit High School in New Orleans. I'm a fourth generation Catholic, and my grandparents would always relay the importance of prayer and faith that their immigrant grandparents, who came to New Orleans from the Philippines, Germany, Italy, and Ireland, taught them. As a result of their guidance, prayer has always been a big part of my faith. When I began praying the rosary, I was able to transition better from middle school to high school. I used my rosary for everything, from keeping me calm, to trying to concentrate. This rosary has always been so meaningful to me because it not only helps me connect to God, but it also gives me a connection to my religion as a Catholic and to my family. This rosary is a symbol of my faith and heritage as a Catholic growing up in New Orleans.
