October is the Month of the Rosary

We just celebrated the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary on October 7. The history of the Rosary mostly consists of legend and tradition.  There is evidence that beads were used to count Our Fathers and Hail Marys in the Middle Ages. Between the twelfth and fifteenth centuries, the structure of the Rosary included praying fifty Hail Marys together with the Psalms, but tradition also has it that Our Lady appeared to St. Dominic and gave him the Rosary as we know it today.  Many saints recommend praying the Rosary to ask Mary for help for others and ourselves. In REP this month, each class will spend a little time learning about the Rosary and praying part or all of it. – From, “A Short History of the Rosary”
