  1. Very interesting jewelry creation, Cam. Just wondering what the story/prayer is behind the sacrifice beads. Congratulations to Maria Margaret.

  2. Thank you! I'm excited to get them-what a great motivation!

  3. Hi Eastyln-

    Here's my favorite sacrifice beads explanation (I use it with the ones in my shop):

    "The story of sacrifice beads begins with the story of Saint Therese of Lisieux. As a child The Little Flower, along with her sisters, used a little string of beads to count their gifts of "little sacrifices" which they did out of love for God. They carried their beads with them in their pockets.

    Saint Therese's "Little Way" is well known. She drew closer to God through small acts in her day to day life, saying:

    “Love proves itself by deeds, so how am I to show my love? Great deeds are forbidden me. The only way I can prove my love is by scattering flowers and these flowers are every little sacrifice, every glance and word, and the doing of the least actions for love.”

    Sacrifice Beads may also be used as a sort of pocket rosary, with one Our Father bead separated from the ten Hail Mary beads.

    When you pull the ten smaller sacrifice beads they slide up the row and stay in place until you pull them back again. They are wonderful to use as a small rosary or to use to count good deeds and sacrifices throughout the day (and they are a great motivating tool!)."


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
