A reader asks:
I live in an area with a large Hispanic population and I see a lot of men and boys wearing Rosaries around their necks. Is it sacreligious to do so? Please enlighten me.
You mean they use their necks as if they were rear-view mirrors?
I don’t think it is sacrileges in itself to wear a rosary. Many religious orders and institutes have a form of the rosary as part of their habit.
I suppose it would depend on the attitude of the wearer and the other things that person may be doing or displaying. Sadly there may be a touch of superstition involved in wearing a rosary, as if it were a magic talisman.
Meanwhile, over at Bad Vestments… always a hoot… there are so many things wrong with this picture, it’s hard to know which to pick on first.
