This podcast features excerpts from the show on The Catholic Channel -- SiriusXM, channel 129.

A caller named Mel asks Father Dave, "How Did the Rosary Begin?" Father Dave explains that St. Dominic had an apparition of Mary in the 13th century in which Mary gave him the Rosary. He also explains that before that, lay people wanted to pray like the monks in the monasteries, but many people were illiterate or could not afford the psalter that they prayed with, so they used a set of beads to pray repetitive prayers. Father Dave also points out that the Rosary we say today is greatly due to St. Dominic. Original Air 1-03-18
