    Interesting! I make rosaries (RCC/Dominican style) for my church's gift shop. Maybe I'll study the Anglican rosaries and try my hand at making some of those (as well as learning to pray with them!). :cool:

    P.S. re the "vain repetition" concerns, my understanding is that the key word there is "vain." Repeating a prayer is not necessarily vain -- think of the angels who constantly sing "Holy, Holy, Holy" around the throne of God. Perhaps it's mouthing the words without thinking about them that's the danger, IMHO.

    Good point. What made the Pharisee’s prayers vain is they wanted to be noticed (Matthew 23:1-7). They weren’t praying for pious reasons, but fo recieve attention and esteem.
