St. Terese of Lisieux and Sacrifice Beads
As a gift from her older sister Pauline, Terese was given a strand of sacrifice beads. Daily sacrificing was a practice instilled by their mother since she was a little girl. She’d rather eat the spinach, and offer up the dessert, because it was more of a sacrifice.
Here’s a link on how to make the sacrifice beads for yourself.
I have been using sacrifice beads ever since getting involved with LightWeigh.com in 2009. Sacrificing isn’t just about food. It can be offering up an attitude, behavior, action, random “want, not need” purchase (put down that handbag Judy); really the sky is the limit on what one chooses to sacrifice. I say I’m sacrificing to Jesus in exchange for peace of mind, and obedience.
How I was taught to use the sacrifice beads is to identify my sacrifice focuses for the day each morning.
Example: husband, daughter, friends, and family. Sick: granddaughter, my Left eye, brother-in-law, aunt, cancer patient.
I offer up my sacrifices to Jesus for peace of mind, and obedience to God, yet I make each sacrifice a prayer with my sacrifice focuses. I recite my list (doesn’t need to be all of them, and it’s okay to just have one), and I pull a bead to slide down the string.
