Your Most Popular Rosaries - According To Google

According to Google the Rosary is a hot item. How hot? Well, Google Adwords Analytic Tool estimates over 1.5 million monthly web searches include the term Rosary. You can expect to see a 20% increase during October, the month of the Rosary.

This trend shocks many as the 1960's witnessed a strong push to be a more "modern Church" and saw this antiquated devotion as "past its prime." With over 40 years to judge the fruits of the new "modern Church," many are seeing that there could be a direct correlation with with the fall of devotion to the Rosary and the fall of fidelity to the Catholic Church.

People are wanting a change, and according to Google it looks like the change is nothing new but something old. Saints like St. Louis de Montfort and St. Robert Bellarmine referred to the Rosary as "the weapon." And people are longing for a weapon to fight evil. It looks like the Rosary is that weapon.

Here's 2008's Hottest Rosaries.

Note: This list will not include the most searched for Rosary terms like "how to pray the Rosary," just which Rosaries are the most popular.


While contemplating your New Year Resolutions, how about making one that will improve your spiritual life while building up the Body of Christ. Pray the Rosary daily.

This site is where I get my Rosary Making supplies from.

http://www.rosaryshop.com/rosariesAndKits.php

They have a really neat feature where you can actually see what your rosary will look like when you complete it.

I made one for my youngest Goddaughter when I was her Confirmation sponsor. It had Porcelain Our Father beads and blue heart shaped beads for the Hail Mary's.

They also sell kits for bracelets. I made them for my daughters for First Communion. My older daughter's was my first and not very good but the younger one got a beautiful sterling silver one. Quite lovely if I say so myself!

My dream is to make them 14kt gold and birthstones for Confirmation. But they are very pricey!
