Woolworths and Rosaries

I was at Woolies yesterday looking for a new pair of jean (the only pair I had was just too faded) and I saw what I thought to be rosaries! Woolworths selling sacramentals?! Not quite.

On closer inspection, they seemed to be nothing more than fashion accessories. They had plain crosses and the division of decades wasn’t right either.

Some of the crosses fell off and were lying around.

They must be selling I suppose. Commercialism.

Until someone complains about the crosses…



Out of Men’s Hearts…

For from within, out of men’s hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and make a man ‘unclean.'”

– St Mark 7:21-23
