A belated feast

On the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary the blue vestments were dusted off and brought out into the sunlight - proving that breaking the rules can have positive effects. Father began Mass by showing the people his Rosary beads and invited anyone who had theirs to place them on the altar for a blessing after the Gospel. The Legionaries were there for Rosary after Mass so they all came forward even if their beads had already been blessed. It was a pleasant sight to see all those beads lined up on the altar and they remained there until the end of Mass.

I thought that the only things permitted to be on the altar were the things required for Mass.
