St. Dominic Receives the Rosary

Legend has it that while St. Dominic was kneeling in prayer the Blessed Virgin
appeared to him and presented him with the rosary.  She instructed him to
spread a devotion to the rosary.

While it is not possible to prove the legend is true it is certainly true that the
Dominicans have been a driving force in promoting the devotion to the rosary.
