Blessing of a Vintage Rosary
Mother Mary, may this old rosary
that has come into my hands
be a blessing in my life.
I give thanks for every person who held it,
for every person who prayed on it,
for every person who passed it on.
I pray that this rosary be free
of any memory of darkness or pain,
allowing the light of its earlier work
to brighten and augment my own prayers.
May my touch upon these beads
leave a mark of beauty
to be a blessing
to the next hands that hold them.
I pray for peace.
