Internationally known speaker and author Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, loves Our Lady and her favorite devotion: the traditional Dominican rosary. But he's not the only one! Throughout the life of the Church, many men and women have become great saints and helped change the course of human history by the power of the rosary, In 26 Champions of the Rosary, Fr. Calloway features some outstanding heroes whose trusting dependence on Our Lady and her rosary has brought grace and divine life into the world, helping make all things new.
These heroes include:
-St. John Paul II, whose witness of love of the Blessed Virgin Mary helped restore the rosary to the devotional life of the Church after Vatican II and bring down the Communist empire;
-Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who bore the rosary with her as her spiritual weapon as she lived a life completely dedicated to the works of mercy for the poorest of the poor out of love for Jesus;
-Sr. Lucia dos Santos, the longest-lived Fatima visionary, who spread the messages of Our Lady of the Rosary;
-Blessed Bartolo Longo, the former satanist priest who became a Catholic convert and the founder of the great Shrine of the Blessed Virgin of the Rosary of Pompeii;
-St. Dominic, whose desperate prayers to Our Lady for help in answering the Albigensian heresy led to her appearing to him and giving him the rosary in the first place.
