"The Whole Bible In Our Pocket"

If the comments section on this post turns into an Iraq war slap-fest, I swear I am turning this blog around and nobody will get any ice cream, but please do consider donating to "Ranger Rosaries." A Rosary-making guild in Annapolis which sends beads to the troops is experiencing a serious shortage. An Army chaplain in Baghdad who is quite a devotee of the Ranger Rosary reports that his unit is one of just two that has never been attacked.

What a wonderful concept. Thanks for sharing that with us.

I hadn't heard about this. I wonder if Rosary Guilds across the nation have heard about it -- this is the kind of thing they live for. I'll ask around. Wouldn't it be great if we could send the new troops over with some extra protection? I'll just leave it at that.

My husband had a keychain rosary attached to his ID tags (not supposed to call them dog tags anymore) while he was in Iraq. We are not much of ones to actually say the Rosary - tend to get the mysteries really mixed up - but I know that Rosary brought him comfort. I'll spread the word to all my Catholic peeps.
