My family is Catholic. One object that is really religious to us is the Rosary. The Rosary is a necklace with groups of five with ten beads in each group. In each group there is a prayer and while praying to Saint Mary, you are crowning her at the same time. The Rosary reminds me of my mom because she prays a lot with it and she is deeply religious. The Rosary connects to my family’s immigration story because they always prayed to God and thanks to him they reached North America safe and sound. I have five Rosaries. As a gift my mom got three blessed ones and we bought two at church. The Rosary symbolizes faith and family because my mom and her family always got together and prayed.
