 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
