 General Description:

St. Dominic and the Rosary

Catherine Beebe

Vision Books

Catherine Beebe presents a dramatic account of the incredible life of Saint Dominic in this tenth title in the popular Vision Book 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.

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 Castile.  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 all over the world stands today - seven centuries later - as a living memorial to the sanctity of their founder.  Illustrated

Patron Of: Scientists, Astronomers, Choir Members, Dominican Order, Falsely Accused

Born of wealthy Spanish nobility. Son of Blessed Joan of Aza. When she was pregnant, his mother had a vision that her unborn child was a dog who would set the world on fire with a torch it carried in its mouth; a dog with a torch in its mouth became a symbol for the order which he founded, the Dominicans. At Dominic's baptism, Blessed Joan saw a star shining from his chest, which became another of his symbols in art, and led to his patronage of astronomy.

Studied philosophy and theology at the University of Palencia. Priest. Canon of the cathedral of Osma. Augustinian. Worked for clerical reform. Lifelong apostolate among heretics, especially Albigensians, and especially in France. Worked with Blessed Peter of Castelnau. Founded the Order of Friars Preachers (Dominicans) in 1215, a group who live a simple, austere life, and an order of nuns dedicated to the care of young girls. Friend of Saint Amata of Assisi.

At one point Dominic became discouraged at the progress of his mission; no matter how much he worked, the heresies remained. But he received a vision from Our Lady who showed him a wreath of roses, representing the rosary. She told him to say the rosary daily, teach it to all who would listen, and eventually the true faith would win out. Dominic is often credited with the invention of the rosary; it actually pre-dates him, but he certainly spread devotion to it, and used it to strengthen his own spiritual life.

Reported miracle worker who brought four people back from the dead. Legend says that Dominic received a vision of a beggar who, like Dominic, would do great things for the Faith. Dominic met the beggar the next day. He embraced him and said, "You are my companion and must walk with me. If we hold together, no earthly power can withstand us." The beggar was Saint Francis of Assisi.
