The souvenir I found in my room was a gift I recieved from my aunt for my birthday. It was a Rosary made form rose petals found in the holy land. She got it in Israel on vacation, and knew I collected Rosaries.
It has definite social relavance. Religion is a topic discussed in every country. It is fought over and people are killed just for having different beliefs. Catholic's, which is where the Rosary comes from, are challenged everyday for the validity of their religion. This Rosary, even though a simple beaded ring, holds the symbolism for passion. Passion for the freedom of believing in what they want .
“How to say a Rosary”
A Souvenir does not only have to be a remembrance from the place it was collected from it can have universal significance too. This link goes to a website that explains how to say a Rosary and use it properly.
