Pray, Eat, Love~The Rosary

Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary
~October 7th~

"To recite the Rosary is nothing other than to contemplate with Mary the face of Christ"
~ Pope John Paul II, Rosarium Virginis Mariae, 3

I know there is a movie and a book that came out with the title "Eat, Pray, Love." I have heard a bit about them but have not seen the movie or read the book. I couldn't help but use a similar play-on-words with this post! When we made these edible Rosary delights, followed by praying, eating, and loving, I thought about that recent movie and book title. The prayer came first, then we indulged in some "sweet" Rosaries. The love is automatic, both giving and receiving, when you pray the Rosary, right? Hence the title of Pray, Eat, Love~The Rosary.

For the Rosary Cake 
(Pictured Above)

We used mini M&M's for the 53 Hail Mary beads, as well as the beginning Our Father, Glory Be, and the Crucifix...

Then we used a regular-sized blue(for Our Lady) M&M to mark the 5 decades~

We are saying that the "M's" on the M&M's stand for Mary!

*A blue border around the cake also represents the color of our Blessed Mother*

Since October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary, we thought it appropriate to bring in some Autumn celebration at the same time!

Try this Autumn Candy Rosary
~Pray, Eat, & Love~

Now we're ready to pray, eat, & love...We just did all 3 right in one sitting!

This was the yummiest Rosary we've ever tasted and prayed at the same time...

Our family had a ball taking turns eating a candy after each prayer.

~ I know many of you have done the same thing with other versions of edible Rosaries ~

"The Rosary is a powerful weapon to put the demons to flight and to keep oneself from sin…If you desire peace in your hearts, in your homes, and in your country, assemble each evening to recite the Rosary. Let not even one day pass without praying it, no matter how burdened you may be with many cares and labors." Pope Pius XI

  1. Love it! Thanks so much for the ideas, Tiffany! My children thank you too. ;)

  2. Thank you for sharing! I love the symbolism of the m&m's for Mary. The family members taking turns paying at the table is wonderful.

  3. Do you use one cake mix or 2? Thank you
