Today, we celebrate the life of St. Dominic de Guzman (1170-1221), probably best known for his founding of a religious order or preachers (the Dominicans!) and his deep devotion to our Blessed Mother through the Rosary.

To celebrate this day, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite Rosary resources (listed here in no particular order):

I could go on and on, but I want to leave room in the comments for YOU to share your favorite Rosary-related resources. I’ll leave you for now with a quote attributed to St. Dominic, which should provide marching orders for all of us as we celebrate his life and teachings:

“Arm yourself with prayer rather than a sword; 
wear humility rather than fine clothes.”

A question for you: Are you devoted to praying the Rosary? What are some of your favorite Rosary related resources?

  1. As a former Dominican, thanks for honoring St. Dominic in this way. One of my old time favorites is “My Life in the Rosary” by Mother Angelica. It helps me with meditations when my mind is not focused.
    Thanks also for sharing “Real Men Pray the Rosary.” I was just wondering what to get my Dad for a b-day gift. And I am going to check out “The Rosary: the Prayer that Saved My Life.” God bless you.
