Irish Love Knot Meaning

Nancy asks…

Why are there medals on the rosary?

Why do some rosaries (or some people put on the rosaries) medals or medallions of some sort at each big bead (our father) separating the decades?
not the centerpiece, like medals at each our father bead seperating the decade. Read the question before you answer. thanks.

like in this picture http://www.palhbooks.com/ros3008s.jpg

accept I have seen them not just beside the centerpiece, but beside the beads separating each decade.

LoveKnots answers:

The centerpiece of the Rosary is there for function.

There are an endless variety of medals to chose from.
Some depict a favorite saint or the Sacred Heart or the Virgin Mary.

There are websites to check out the variety..just google rosary centerpieces.

It’s not important what a Rosary is made of. Rosarys made out of rope and 14k gold Rosarys attain the same results.

What is important is that the Rosary is made properly and made use of by the recitation of.

It takes fifteen minutes to say a Rosary …1% of a 24 hour day

The effects are powerful and profound.

The Rosary is the weapon!

edit:’Read the question before you answer. Thanks.’
no, thank you for the advice :)

Same response: function.
Whether it’s beads, knots, some Irish Rosaries have shamrocks, miraculous medals, containers drops of holy water from Lourdes… Whether it’s the small beads or the large beads or the centerpieces…it’s your personal style and appeal … The only thing that cannot be substituted is the cross and the placement of the beads cannot be altered.

Your pic (next time you might want to include that with your question ;) )
looks like it might be a Lourdes Rosary. As John Lennon said “whatever gets your through the night”.

Thanks for the question and giving me another opportunity to exercise promise #12

Happy Monday!
Peace! And God bless
