Car Rosaries?

did this become the latest style? or was there a surplus of Catholic converts?

I just got back from the store and it seems as if 3 out of 4 cars had rosaries dangling from their mirrors.

  • I also reported the anon poster who is maligning mexicans. And I wonder why the OP also posted anon? Why are you afraid of revealing yourself?

    It's not a new "style." Some people like to keep their rosary with them at all times. If you are stuck in traffic, you could say a decade of two of your rosary, for example.

  • OP I wasn't after you I just couldn't believe I read the Mexican comments. With all that is going on the world, many Catholics are using things like that to remind us to pray when able. Such as driving or waiting at a stop light. I would have one in my van but since I use it for work I can't.

  • Wow thanks for nosying at the crap I have hanging from the rearview...did you see my badass air freshner with Pete Townshend jumping?

    People have been doing this for a long time.
