 Our Description

To pray the rosary as it ought to be prayed means living out the mystery of Christ under the sign of the Blessed Mother. As Mother of the Church, she challenges each of us to become 'perpetual angelus." Such a bold undertaking in faith, however, requires the direction of experts, those whom we recognize as saints. Through their example and prayer, they lead us into a deeper understanding of the principal mysteries that we associate with the Lord. We learn much then from the witness, the prayer, and the exuberance of such saints as Therese of Lisieux, Elizabeth of Dijon, John Marie Vianney, Bernadette Soubirous, and Charles de Foucauld along with many others. While their thoughts have helped to develop these meditations, three saints in particular structure this thoughtful and prayerful work: St Benedict, St Francis, and St Dominic. Each in its own way offers us special insights into the joyful, sorrowful, and glorious mysteries of the rosary. Their insistence on the importance of grayer, silence, and discipline as elements essential to cultivate the recollection required by our deepening relationship with the Lord permeates these reflections. In short, the author hopes that his text will enable prayerful readers to follow the exhortation of St Dominic: 'Find everything in God, and then share it with others. "

After completing his doctoral studies at the University of Fribourg (Switzerland), Father Cessario served as Academic Dean at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, DC, where he now teaches Christology and moral theology. Recently, he has written The Moral Virtues and Theological Ethics (Notre Dame/London: University of Notre Dame Press, 1991) and Le Virtu (Milan: Editorial Jaca Book, 1994), one of the volumes in the new Amateca Series in Theology. Illustrations for this work come from the pen of Sister Mary Grace, OP, an acclaimed artist from St Dominic's Monastery, Washington, DC. The calligraphy is the work of Dominican laywoman Rose Folsom.

Profile

    Born to the Roman nobility. Twin brother of Saint Scholastica. Studied in Rome, Italy, but was dismayed by the lack of discipline and the lackadasical attitude of his fellow students. Fled to the mountains near Subiaco, living as a hermit in a cave for three years; reported to have been fed by a raven. His virtues caused an abbey to request him to lead them. Founded the monastery at Monte Cassino, where he wrote the Rule of his order. His discipline was such that an attempt was made on his life; some monks tried by poison him, but he blessed the cup and rendered it harmless. He returned to his cave, but continued to attract followers, and eventually established twelve monasteries. Had the ability to read consciences, the gift of prophesy, and could forestall attacks of the devil. Destroyed pagan statues and altars, drove demons from groves sacred to pagans. At one point there were over 40,000 monasteries guided by the Benedictine Rule. A summation of the Rule: “Pray and work.”

St. Dominic

St. Dominic Feast Day:
Roman Rite Calendar - 08/08
Tridentine Calendar - 08/08


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

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.
