ST. LOUIS - Rosaries made of cord by the 'The Daughter of St Paul' nuns in St. Louis have taken on a life of their own. The sisters have been making the cord rosaries for a long time to offset the debt following several disasters at their convent and book center.
Sister Joan Paula Arrundo joined FOX 2 to discuss how the blue rosaries became hockey rosaries.
The Daughters of St. Paul have been making cord rosaries for a long time, with a Miraculous Medal of Our Lady affixed to each. However this Spring our rosaries took on a life of their own. We were making the rosaries to defray the debt incurred from multiple disasters at our convent and bookcenter. Rosary by rosary we would work off this debt...but something else happened...the Blues made Post season, and the more blue rosaries were made the more we sold. Then the blue rosary became the Blues rosary. The Blues, game by game, were miraculous - another win, another round! We couldn't make them fast enough! And then the Blues win the Stanley Cup! Gloria! We are hoping to win our version of the Stanley Cup because we have incurred so much debt with busted pipes and the necessary repair and replacement work!
Now they also have a version for the St. Louis Cardinals!
