What to do with all that religious paraphernalia

You know how it goes. You subscribe to one Catholic publication (cough NC Register cough) and suddenly all this religious paraphernalia shows up. Every day.

What to do with all of it?

The rosaries are easy. Put one in every coat and purse you own. That way, you'll never be caught without one, and have one to give away should you encounter someone who needs one.

But the medals? With a few 8 mm jump rings from the jewelry section (the ones the medals come with usually aren't big enough to fit over larger needles), you can have unique stitch markers that advertise the faith whenever you knit in public.

I like that! What a nice idea.

We have a couple of options at our parish for stuff like that:
1) There's always a "give away" box outside the door of the religious ed. office. (I got some fabulous antique holy cards that way once.)
2) There's a basket for rosaries outside our perpetual adoration chapel. I usually put my freebies there and they disappear to a good home.
