From Irish Central:
The rosary beads used to administer President John F. Kennedy’s last rites at Parkland Hospital on the day he was assassinated were auctioned for over $13,000 this month.
As part of RR Auction’s ‘The Fine Autographs and Artifacts Featuring JFK’ collection, the rosary beads used by Father James Thompson on the fateful day of President Kennedy’s death were sold for $13,401.25. The auction concluded on May 8, just ahead of President Kennedy’s May 29 birthday. The sterling silver rosary beads owned by Father James Thompson that were auctioned include a letter of provenance from the priest’s grand-niece, which says in part: “The rosary beads were given to my Great Uncle, upon his placement at Holy Trinity Church, in Dallas, TX from my Grandmother [Mary Magdalene Thompson], who was his only sister.”
