My Rosary.
My Rosary.

       My name is Brandon. I am Puerto Rican, though my grandparents were born in Puerto Rico and came to New York somewhere in the mid 1940’s. Puerto Rico is a beautiful island full of joy and happiness. We are well known for how we celebrate and the foods we eat. In Puerto Rico there’s a big majority of people that are Catholic. Catholic is a religion that people follow, it is very similar to Christianity. 
       My object is a Rosary. Many Catholics pray the Rosary either at home or sometimes they pray it at Mass on Sundays. October is the month of the Rosary so a lot of Catholic’s pray it in October, but it doesn’t have to be October, you can pray it any month at any time. This Rosary I got it from my Sunday classes, my teacher gave it to me and the other kids in my class. The Rosary is special to me because it makes me feel safe and well protected. I keep my Rosary in my room on my dresser so I won't lose it. My family always prays at the Rosary, especially my grandma. The Rosary is a mix of a set of prayers, Our Father, Hail Mary, Apostles Creed, and Glory Be.Many Catholic’s pray to the Rosary to build a loving and better relationship with Jesus and Mary.
      To conclude, now you know why this object is very special to me, why it connects with my family and me and my religion.
