St. Dominic and the Rosary

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.

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 preached the word of God and the power of the Holy Rosary prayer.

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.

    This is a good book for children to help them connect to the lives of the saints. I purchased it for each of my children's families so that all of my grandchildren could enjoy this story.

    Saint Dominic and the Rosary

    This biography follows St Dominic during his many and varied journeys to teach and to preach to
    the common people. These efforts resulted in the Dominican order and the development of the
    rosary. The complex politics of the time are simplified for young readers. It is a delightful
    read.
