And about Saint Dominic and the Rosary..

Since childhood, I've loved the notion -- true or tradition -- of Mary giving the Rosary to Saint Dominic. What I've gotta admit is that it was only today, at Mass during the sermon, that I learned the motivation for Mary's gift.

I'd never heard of the Albigensian heresy, nor the Manicheanism heresy for that matter. You probably have, but in any case, you might be interested in this link, and, for that matter, this website.

Please remember the Dominicans -- the Order of Preachers -- in your prayers.


Update: the link's fixed. Thanks, Dan!
