Buy Rosary Beads

Since buying rosary beads can and should be a personal experience, it’s in your best interest to look into the history and cultural significance of rosaries before you go out to buy the beads.

For a start on the background of the rosary, there isn’t anyone who can completely agree on its origin, but most do agree that it evolved somewhere in the 12th to 15th centuries. The most common belief about rosaries is that the Virgin Mary presented one to Saint Dominic in a vision in 1214 which is when he began preaching about the uses of the rosary in missionary work. But some do disagree and say that no evidence can back this up.

The origin of using beads while praying, or using prayer beads, is easier to find in history. This use of beads is linked back through the Medieval Ages where it was first known as Paternosters, Latin for “Our Father”. Counting Our Fathers and Hail Mary’s was the primary purpose of these beads.

Just like historical uses of a rosary, contemporary rosaries are used for helping Catholics keep track of their prayers. There are so many prayers in the rosary, and these beads are used for believers to count as they pray. Read up on this for a deeper understanding from books you can purchase about the history and significance of these beads in your prayers when you go to buy your beads.

For the structure of rosary beads, most rosaries today contain 50 beads. This comes from the 1500s where the beads of rosaries were based on a five decade rosary, and that was based upon three sets of mysteries. Now they are known as five decade rosaries and are strung in five groups each of ten beads, representing a decade. The five decades are to stand for the Creed, the Doxology, Our Father, the Salve Regina and the Hail Mary’s. And the smaller ten rosary beads in each decade on the rosary are for all 10 Hail Mary’s.

Just like religion, your choice of rosary beads should be personal and specifically unique to you. You will find rosary beads made of various metals, wood or glass and they are available in any color you can think of. The factor of aesthetics is an important one, but shouldn’t be the first – your rosary beads need to be a reflection of your own spirituality.
