I found this great idea online and I think I’m going to use it. There is a person whose practice is to give a Rosary every year to someone, but before they do so, they spend the previous year praying with it. The recipient is either chosen after prayer, or by the prompting of the Holy Spirit.
When I saw this, I was absolutely floored. I think that over Thanksgiving I am going to buy a Rosary and then begin praying with it during Advent, and make it a Christmas gift for the following Christmas (2015). I’m very excited for this.
