The advent of the Christmas decorations in Rome has got me thinking a bit about this year’s shopping. Always a challenge!
I happened upon this “combat rosary” today and thought I would share a link to it here – it’s a unique item and might be just the right thing for those affiliated with the military, past or present; for a young man who is being confirmed this year; for Dad; et al.
If you buy one, make sure you have a priest exorcise and bless the St. Benedict medal using the proper prayer.
The government apparently issued these rosaries to soldiers upon request during WWI. How things have changed! Read more about the rosary, and possibly purchase one, at this page.
If you have any unique Catholic Christmas gift ideas, share them in the comment box!
