This item might seem like a ordinary necklace with circles on it. Rosary is a big thing for people that believe in the Catholic religion. In the Catholic religion the Rosary was given to Saint Dominic to see the blessings of the Virgin Mary was was passed to Allan de la Roche to promote it. The main purpose for the Rosary beads are to keep track of the number of Hail Mary mysteries that are contemplated. It was created in 1571 in Rome. Rosaries can be built from many materials wood, string, metal, gold ,and more. The wooden Rosary that I own has a lot of meaning to me. The Rosary was my Grandpas that passed it down to my mom, and my mom passed it down to me. We usually use the Rosary in the month of December.
