- Hello! I'm quite excited about finding your group! I was searching
the web under "Anglican Prayer Beads" and found it. I'm also a
member of the Rosary Makers group here at Yahoo.
I have been making Rosaries and chaplets for quite some time, but
not on a consistant basis. I'm currently doing research into the
history, art form, and spirituality of prayer beads for a class
I'm hoping to teach at our Episcopal cathedral either for Advent
or Lent. The history I've found on the web is wonderful- I had
no idea of the origins. I also knew nothing about Eastern Chokti
until doing my research. I'm eager to gain information from
everyone here, especially ideas I can use in my presentation.
Right now, I'm needing information on how to make Anglican prayer
beads- the strung type, not the type with eye pins. I'm not sure
how to transition from the "loop" down to the "tail", or vice-versa.
Your help will be most appreciated!
- Good mornin'. I'm a new member.
For my entire life I had been a Baptist but recently had become
unsatisfied with my Protestant faith. Thanks to the diligence of my
Catholic friends, undoubtedly being used by the Holy Spirit to further
the Kingdom, I saw the truth and beauty of the Catholic faith; I am
now, as they say, swimming across the Tiber.
In my journey towards Rome I've fallen in love with prayer beads,
especially the rosary. I can remember my first time; praying a rosary
blessed by Pope Benedict XVI on a cool, rainy evening. It was one of
the most powerful yet tranquil moments of my life.
My search for more information on prayer beads led me here. Most of
my time thus far as been spent reading and researching, but I did have
time to make a Psalm 23 chaplet for a friend of mine before she left
for college. I'll put a picture up in the gallery!
Anyways, I look forward to learning as much as I can and hopefully
meeting some good 'resources'. Hah!
