Rainbow’ of rosaries: From Minnesota to the world

Bags and bundles of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple and orange rosaries pile on Cindy Breth’s kitchen table. Beside the table are racks of similar rosaries of differing colors.

“I call them the rainbow of colors,” Breth said. The rosaries are Breth’s handiwork, which, like the around-40,000-or-so other rosaries that she made, will go into hands around the world.

Breth is a member of St. Anthony Parish in St. Anthony. After she completes the rosaries, her aunts and friends find places for them. The rosaries have traveled or will travel to other countries like Africa or India. Some are given to Poor Clare Sisters at St. Clare’s Monastery in Sauk Rapids, Minn., others go to Catholic schools.

“They go wherever people are in need of them,” she said. [Snip] St Cloud Visitor/Catholic OnLine
