Just in Time …

This beautiful Chaplet, made lovingly by Barbara, arrived just in time for today, the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows. I actually received it a week or so ago. But the timing seems so perfect, as this entire month of September is dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows.

I have not known of this Chaplet for very long. Maybe nine months or so. I first heard about it through this wonderful Catholic blog circle that I was just becoming acquainted with. Then when my mom was visiting for the summer, she asked me one day if I had ever heard of the Seven Sorrows Chaplet. I told her that I had and that I even knew someone who made them! So, I showed her Barbara’s blog. She immediately decided to order one and chose dark purple beads. Then she turned to me and asked, “Well, don’t you want one, too?” I took this question to be an invitation to pray, to grow closer to Our Lady and her Son. While I was taking forever to decide on a color, my mom started hearing more about the Chaplet … It confirmed in her that this was indeed a prayer she needed to start praying—as if she was being told to pray the Chaplet, because she kept hearing about it in various non-related places. And she felt sure that I needed to start praying this Chaplet, too. And you all know, moms know best! =) I also picked dark purple for the beads. It seemed like just the right color for this particular Chaplet’s focus … And it will keep me connected to my mom, all the way down in Florida, to have matching beads with her.
Thanks again, Barbara! It is so lovely!

  1. Wonderful – on both fronts: lovely beading and lovely praying!!

    My mum just asked me to order parts to make seven identical rosaries for her Marian group and she added a bit extra to "pay me" . . . so rather than 'pay me' I'm ordering a few chaplets and I'll make them at leisure (one for me, first; then, maybe a give-away). My beading isn't nearly as good (honest Abe) as Barbs, but I might get a bit better if I kept at it.

  2. oooh, that is a wonderful color. so rich and dark. i might just have to order myself another chaplet from barb for she does the greatest beading! i enjoy it myself, but with so many other hobbies it's probably best to leave well enough alone…
    and how very beautiful that you and your mama will be praying "together" though miles apart. that is very sweet sarah.
    i will end with saying that as hard as it is to pray the rosary every day, with all of life's busy-ness, so much help pours down from above that it makes one wonder how they ever did it when they weren't praying the rosary all of the time.

  3. I got one for myself on the feast day this week, too, and prayed it for the first time. Whoa, is it powerful.
    It will certainly be a regular on my prayer list.
    I think the one I got looks exactly like yours! Simple, but full of meaning.
