Morning Glory Beads

These extra-small rosaries are perfect when you're on the go and sneaking in some prayer time!

Happy First of October! Today starts a special time of year for Catholics. The month of October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary.

This month is the perfect time to join in saying this beautiful traditional prayer. You might gather your family or a group of friends to pray together, or you might pray it peacefully on your own. Perhaps you’ll even make a resolution to pray the Rosary every day this month.

Many Catholics like to pray the Rosary on their commute to work or school. It’s a time that’s easy to remember to pray, and the prayer brings meaning and connection to an occasion that might otherwise be wasted. 

If you like to pray the Rosary on the go, you’ll love these super portable rosaries. Now, I know what you’re thinking: “The Rosary is already portable!” And that’s definitely true. 

But let me tell you, it’s super handy to have a rosary so small it fits in your wallet or phone case. You’re guaranteed never to forget it at home!

For those on-the-go times of prayer, check out these 3 extra portable rosaries. Hopefully they can help you stick to that everyday Rosary resolution, or at least sneak in a few extra times of prayer!

1The Rosary Card

This little card is so clever! It’s a metal rosary the size of a credit card, so it fits easily in your wallet or phone case. Their website says,

Picture this: It’s a busy day, you’re feeling the stress of your relationships, your career, or the many other problems that our broken world constantly hurls our way. But you remember that you are not made for this world, and you know someone who has conquered it. You slip out your wallet, and slip into a quick prayer, meditating on the power of Our Lord and reestablishing your dependence on him.

The Rosary Card is a simple, minimalistic, uncomplicated prayer tool that never leaves your side. 

The Rosary Card is made from stainless steel, hard to break, and easy to pray with. It has 10 small holes around the tool used to pray a decade of the Rosary, and a cross to guide the beginning and end of the Rosary Mystery. The symbol in the middle represents Mother Mary.

2The Steering Wheel Rosary

If you find yourself behind the wheel a lot, this mini rosary helps you make the best use of that driving time! Their website says,

The Steering Wheel Decade Rosary was created to provide you with a practical and beautiful way to pray the rosary in your car. Pray as you slowly turn the beads or simply pull the magnet and run the beads through your hand as you pray. The magnetic clasp makes it very easy to snap on and off of your steering wheel. 

Careful attention has been given so that the Our Father beads can easily be felt in the hand (no need to look!). The change is easily felt by the difference in size and/or shape or texture. 

Features a small dangling metal key with St. Benedict’s medal on either side–a powerful sacramental for bodily and spiritual protection.

3The Keychain Rosary Ring

Take a decade rosary ring and put it on a keychain, and you’ve got a rosary you’ll never forget! Anywhere you take your keys, you’ll have your rosary right at hand.
