The Overlooked Signifigant Rosary

​​                                           Everyday Religious Imagery Assignment
Pope Pius XI once said, “The Rosary is a powerful weapon to put the demons to flight and to keep oneself from sin…If you desire peace in your hearts, in your homes, and in your country, assemble each evening to recite the Rosary. Let not even one day pass without saying it, no matter how burdened you may be with many cares and labors.” To the Catholic-Christian faith, the rosary piece is a way many believers express themselves. The rosary can not only be worn as jewelry it is also a form of devotion in which five prays called the Hail Marys are recited following by the Our Father and Glory Be prayers.  The rosary piece consist of fifty-three Hail Mary beads, six our father beads, and a cross of Jesus Christ 

To many the rosary is just a source of beads worn as jewelr; the rosary is an everyday religious imagery of today's society. Wearing a rosary carries a lot of weight.many are dumbfounded to the power the rosary has. People of Catholic faith believe that praying the rosary grants them grace and mercy, keeps them from evil, become worthy of eternal life, and receive a high place in heaven. Instead of feeling the benefits, many have no clue or insight of the rosary and use it as fashion. This has became a problem. What this suggest about our contemporary culture of everyday religious express is that before and a little after World War 2 the rosary played an amazing role one the growth and stability of many Catholic-Christian homes. In the 21 century the Rosary is no longer seen as significant. The Rosary is just the so called "cool thing" trending. Religious expression is not taken serious.
