[smell the roses]

The rosary beads smell of roses... 

Belle, a good friend & former classmate from elementary/high school, gave this during our last batch get-together. She was among those who attended the canonization ceremony of St. Candida Maria de Jesus, F.I.  in October of 2010 at St. Peter's Square, Rome. The nun in the picture was the foundress of Hijas de Jesus or Daughters of Jesus, the congregation to which my former school belongs. In the homily Pope Benedict gave during the canonization mass, he praised her inspiration for other Sisters to dedicate themselves to education & the promotion of women.
