‘We are seeking the good way to live.”
According to Catholic tradition, in the 13th Century the Rosary was given to St. Dominic (founder of the Dominicans) by the Blessed Mother in a vision. Mary told St. Dominic how the rosary was to be recited. The Rosary brings to mind important events in the Bible from the life of Jesus and Mary.
