Rosary for the USA

I happened to pick up the Rockford, Illinois, Diocesan newspaper and saw an article about a rosary that would be beautiful to use for prayer the Fortnight For Freedom (from June 21 to July 4).

When Manny Yrique was praying before the Blessed Sacrament about his concerns for the future of America, he had a sudden inspiration. The rosary has 50 Hail Mary beads so why not offer each one for the 50 US states? (I guess technically it has 53 Hail Mary beads so you could add Puerto Rico, Guam and the US Virgin Islands)

If you order the rosary, a prayer booklet is included listing special prayers for the federal government, local governments and the names of the 50 states.

God bless America!
