“The most deadly poison of our times is indifference. And the happens, although the praise of God should know no limits. Let us strive, therefore, to praise him to the greatest extent of our powers.”

Q. I’ve seen people hang rosaries over the rear view mirrors in their cars, and some people wear rosaries around their necks. Is it OK to do that?

A. First of all, let me give a simple answer and say that I think these practices are fine. I know many devout people who love our Lord and His Blessed Mother who hang rosaries from their cars’ rear view mirrors. For them, it is a way of letting their love for Mary show forth for all to see. The same would be said for those who wear them around their necks. If someone chooses to do either of these practices, they are most likely doing so out of a devotion to and love for our Blessed Mother. While I do not hang the rosary from my mirror or wear it around my neck, I always have it in my pocket. At night, I sleep with it wrapped around my wrist. I suppose that keeping the rosary close to us is similar to wearing a cross or scapular or hanging a sacred picture in our room. Rosaries are blessed objects and, for that reason, are good to have around.
