someone asked me this question and didn't really didn't know how answer it correctly. does it just represent the catholic religion in general, or does it mean if u wear it it protects you? never really thought about it until now. please help.
It's not a symbol it's a prayer.
It is used for prayer focus... basically.
First of all, you do not "wear" a Rosary for protection. You don't do that! A scapula is what you wear around your neck that gives you protection. The Rosary is, at its heart, a biblical prayer, which is why Scripture versus are often used for meditation within each mystery. Praying the Rosary helps us think about Jesus, what he did for us and how Mary and Jesus love us very much.
Jesus said to take up the cross,Matthew 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
