...the reason for the tradition of hanging rosaries on a tree?
|Loretto Chapel, Santa Fe, New Mexico|
"Be faithful in small things because it is in them
that your strength lies."
Next to the door of the Loretto Chapel (where the miraculous stairs are)
is this small tree...literally covered with rosaries!
I tried looking the practice up on the internet, but didn't find any answers.
There were pictures...even of the same tree...
but no description of how or why this tradition came about...
