In 2009, I was a catechist, helping high school sophomores learn what it means to be Catholic and then helping the same group the following year as they prepared for Confirmation. The lesson for one particular week was about various types of prayer, one of which being the rosary. I don't recall exactly what moved me, but as we continued on to other topics that year, I just wanted to explore the rosary further. So I purchased this inexpensive kit and made my first one. There is no particular meaning behind the beads or the centerpiece or crucifix; they just came with the kit. But it worked.
