and perhaps a few Catholic cousins who pray the rosary as well 😉

Oh sorry Julie, I didn’t know anyone else said the Rosary. Oops. 🙂 Thanks for letting me know.
and did you know that there is an Anglican rosary?? My aunt gave me one many years ago. I found a group of Anglican nuns (celibate as their cousins so sometimes I wonder why the separation) who make them—and I have purchased others—but the true “catholic” rosary, the prayers leading with Mary’s own words—that is the true rosary…. 🙂
No, I didn’t know about the Anglican rosary. How is it said? Does it have the same arrangement of beads? There are loads of different sets of beads for Catholic prayers. In addition to the regular Rosary beads, I occasionally use two other different kinds and an Orthodox prayer rope for the Jesus prayer.
I don’t know much about the Anglican church really, despite having English parents. Wales, where I grew up, doesn’t have many Anglican churches. The only exposure I’ve had to the liturgy is through http://church.atonementonline.com/. They belong to the Anglican Ordinariate which, as you probably already know, is part of the Catholic Church but was set up to allow converted Anglicans to retain their own traditions. In the modern climate they seem more Catholic than most other Catholics. 🙂 The videos at atonementonline are worth a look if you haven’t come across them before.
there are suggested prayers—I’ve just always used a combination of the Jesus prayer and a prayer by Julian of Norwich
“God of your goodness, give me yourself,
For you are enough to me.
And I can ask for nothing less that is to your glory.
And if I ask for anything less, I shall still be in want, for only in you have I all.”
and I too have a chotki that I keep by my bedside with 50 knots that I will use often at night simply to say the Jesus Prayer…
here is a link to the Anglican prayer beads
And like I say Sarah, I am probably more Catholic than Anglican, more Anglican than Episcopalian (Episcopalian is what I was raised here in the States)…
as I am more Orthodox in my faith—some, in our sadly pervasive culture of xenophobia, liken being more orthodox to conservative, right winged or zealot—I liken it to being more roots based —back to the basic beginnings—no new age, no cutting edge, no feel good, happy happy, joy joy, missing the true root of the historic beginning of our early faith and Church—so one day…I see myself a becoming Catholic—for now—I just lean 🙂
Thanks for the link. I like the symbolism of the beads. I’m a sucker for symbolism. That’s why I use an Orthodox way to hold my hand when I cross myself rather than just using a flat hand as is traditional here in Ireland. It symbolises the Trinity and the two natures of Christ.
I’m with you on the back-to-basics – definitely not a fan of the current innovations. There’s so much good stuff in there already, and it worked well enough until the Sixties, why do we need to change it? It’s going to take me the rest of my life to go through even a fraction of two thousand years of accumulated teaching and practice. Enough already!
I too often use the orthodox way of crossing myself!! 😇– there is much I greatly appreciate about the Orthodox faith— yes- the 60s were such a pivotal moment hurdling not upward and outward as so many believed– but rather we cut ourselves off from our obedience to God — all in the name of liberation and new found freedoms and we’ve been spiraling downward ever since —
And yes symbolism, it has always played such an important role in my own art as it does in yours- cut from the same cloth we are– or so it seems ☺️
Sisters in Christ. 😀
