Saint Dominic led a life of excitement and adventure. As a boy he sold his books to feed the poor and offered himself as ransom for a prisoner. As a young priest he rode with a king's cavalcade to carry a marriage offer to the princess of Denmark from the prince of Castle. But his greatest adventures came when he walked from town to town and stood fearlessly in the market places to preach the word of God. The work of the thousands of Dominican priests and sisters alll over the world stands today--seven centuries later--as a living memorial to the sanctity of their founder. Saint Dominic and the Rosary. Catherine Beebe.
Dominic was born in Spain, the youngest of four children. He was educated by his uncle, a priest. Dominic became a priest and joined a religious community. Soon he became the prior, or head. Dominic might have lived his whole life in that monastery if he had not gone with his bishop to northern Europe in As they traveled, Dominic saw that many people were following heretics, or false teachers. One heresy was Albigensianism, named for the French town of Albi where it had begun.

I n the year Saint Dominic, the founder of the Order of Preachers, was in anguish because he was failing in his attempt to convert the Albigensian Cathar heretics. Dominic attributed this to the deepness and gravity of sinfulness of the heretics and the poor example of Catholics.
Catherine Beebe presents a dramatic account of the incredible life of St. Dominic in this tenth title in the popular Vision Books series of saints for youth 9 - 15 years old. As a young priest, Dominic sat all night at a wooden table in a village tavern. He preached the truths of the Church to an embittered inn-keeper and, in the morning, joyfully received the man again into the faith of his fathers. This was the beginning of the great preaching career of Saint Dominic, the "Athlete of Christ" and founder of the order which bears his name.
There are differing views on the history of the Rosary. The exact origin of the Rosary as a prayer is less than clear and subject to debate among scholars. The use of knotted prayer ropes in Christianity goes back to the Desert Fathers in the 3rd and early 4th centuries. These counting devices were used for prayers such as the Jesus prayer in Christian monasticism. The period after the First Council of Ephesus in witnessed gradual growth in the use of Marian prayers during the Middle Ages. However, not all Catholics agree with that tradition.
