I am from India from a middle class family struggling without any income. I have asked several sources for help but have received no responses.

I am looking for someone who can send me a high quality Rosary; one with gun metal Rosary beads. Everyone loves them. In India we are not getting high quality beads in our Rosaries so I'm asking:

  • Can you kindly send me a good quality metal Rosary to India since we have no income?

Hi Josh,

There was a time where I was sending out FREE Rosaries but now that I am working at Walmart, I have no financial means to continue that ministry as I'm living paycheck to paycheck.

I'm not quite sure why you need a metal Rosary. The power of the Rosary is in meditating on the events of the Life of Our Lord and His Mother. As a matter of fact, when I am caught:

  • misplacing my Rosary or
  • leaving it behind

I say, what I call, a Rosary-less Rosary.

  • What is a Rosary-less Rosary?

Simple: You pray the Rosary using your fingers. No fingers needed to count for the single prayers like: the Apostle's Creed, Hail Holy Queen and Glory Be. Use three of your fingers for the petitions of Faith, Hope, and Charity; and use all ten of your fingers to say one decade for each of the twenty mysteries of the Rosary.

If you need a strong, durable Rosary for longevity then I would recommend using the source I used when I ran my Rosary program. You are not going to get a metal Rosary (that I know of) cheaper than this:

That's the best I can do.

Josh —

Unfortunately, customs rules for India make it very difficult to send Rosaries there. I am not able to do it myself.

If one of my colleagues wants to rise to the challenge I wish them the best.
