“Click To Pray”: A Wearable Rosary Device

Check out this eRosary released by the Vatican itself: a wearable device designed to teach people about the Catholic Church.

The eRosary, which is connected to a smartphone app, can be activated by making the sign of the cross, Engadget reported. Made up of 10 black agate and hematite rosary beads and a “smart cross” that stores data, the wearable device can be worn as a bracelet and enables individuals to pray on the go.

Once you activate the device by making the sign of the cross, you can then choose which of the three different rosaries you will pray. There is the standard rosary, the contemplative rosary, and the thematic rosary.

The eRosary, which retails for $110, is available for pre-order at Amazon and Acer’s online store.

What are your thoughts on this one?

Anyone can "pray on the go" if they're so inclined -- traditional rosaries are far more lightweight and portable than this silly gadget. Of course, I'm not a believer in anything supernatural (although I was brought up Catholic) so even the beads are silly to me. But the fact that this is being pushed by the Vatican is particularly obnoxious -- "Here -- buy this unnecessary and overpriced thing so you can make one of the richest entities in the world richer . . . because we need more millions to pay off the victims of child rape by our priests, who we won't turn over to police for justice.
