WEBSITE REVIEW: 59 Beads.com

Meelyn, Aisling and I went to the public library yesterday so that Mee could do a little research for the fine arts project she's doing for the 4-H Fair in July. While she busied herself, Aisling and I logged onto computer terminals, thinking that we could have some fun visiting one another's Webkinz houses, but the library's servers were being very touchy and we couldn't get it to work.

So I was browsing around on the internet and, having forty minutes of time online at my disposal, thought how nice it would be to Google some different sites for praying the rosary online.

There are many places to pray the rosary online, but the one that caught my eye was one called 59 Beads.com. I clicked on the link and found that it's a new site being promoted by Phatmass, a site I enjoy visiting for the daily Mass readings, the Pope's monthly prayer intentions and the like.

59 Beads is still under construction, so the only Mysteries available so far are the Joyful ones, which I prayed there at the library computer. They're really well done with gorgeous artwork, scripture verses that correspond with the event being meditated upon, and a virtual rosary that you click on to move to the next "bead."

It will be a fantastic prayer tool when the whole thing is up and running, but for now, I hope you'll enjoy those Joyful Mysteries.

Well, how cool is this site? Thanks for posting about this. I know several older ladies/gentlemen who are housebound and would enjoy doing the Rosary like this. I can see putting Clarice with this on the counter while I am cooking as I usually pray the Rosary during those times.
