Cowboy Praying the Rosary – Smith

Collections: Spirituality, Top 150

Category: People Praying Popular

A strong man is a man of prayer, which is exemplified in this classic American-Catholic picture. The iconic cowboy is normally seen as someone tough who can hold their liquor in a saloon or weight in a gunfight. However, this silent scene shows the viewer that same ruggedness but with a Catholic touch – devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary!

At first, all the viewer notices is a typical western scene. Then slowly comes the realization that there are little rosary beads floating in the air below the praying hands of the cowboy. This image is a must for every western setting and was originally created by D. Smith
