That's Me In The Spotlight

Thursday, March 22, 2007

Dear Constant Reader,

Catholic gifts
are the kinds of things that you find pressed between the pages of the family bible and not in the bible itself.
My mother dragged out an old rosary that was my grandmothers and asked me if I wanted it.
I gave up religion a long time ago but as I touched this pair of beads I could instantly sense my grandmother there with me.
My grandmother would probably be irritated at the fact that I gave up Jesus for other things and I wonder if she'd actually want me to have this item.
The only thing that I know is that I don't want my other siblings to have it.
That may sound greedy but I have never clutched a rosary this hard since I was a child.
