I am not catholic but I wear rosary beads. I was born in Mexico, the second son to intelligent natives. I am a third generation Mormon and even served a mission, also in Mexico. So why the rosary beads you ask? I have found great solace in incorporating other religious practices into my spiritual development. I find that when I meditate the rosary gives me something to focus on. The smoothness of the beads as they slide through my fingers is a pleasurable sensation. I count each one over and over again, letting the repetition carry my thoughts to a deeper plane. I am able to relax and feel and sense all around me. Wearing the rosary beads reminds me to stay centered, focused and present as I engage in life.
