The rosary is a devotion embraced by many Catholics. The beginnings of the rosary are traced to the life of St. Dominic, the founder of the Order of Preachers or Dominicans, approximately 1221 A.D. Rosary is defined as "a crown of roses." The prayers are a spiritual bouquet offered to the Blessed Mother asking her intercession on our behalf.
