Rosary Beads

Is contemplating over rosary beads a kind of spiritual OCD ?  :out:

Keep in mind the D is OCD is 'disorder'. Contemplating over beads -whether rosary, malas, et al- is only a disorder if it disturbs the normal physical or mental health of the contemplant.

It is a kind of induced OCD.


The use of a rosary creates excessive attention to -

  • counting
  • chanting (possibly some prayer or mantra)
This is similar to OCD where the subject pays attention to door locking or hand washing (both cases of classic OCD).


Nonsense. You have no justification to say 'excessive'. Non sequitar. Case dismissed.
