St. Dominic was the first to teach meditative prayer in the form of what we now call the ROSARY. He was the first to teach this method and the first to see the benefits and power of this form of prayer.
During the 11th and 13th centuries, the heresy of Albigensianism was taking over France, with the thought that only spiritual was good and anything physical or material was evil. This thought led to the belief that our soul was good, however, it was housed in an evil body that people wanted to escape. This was not a teaching of Jesus Christ, and Father Dominic set out to preach the good news of our bodies being a beautiful and necessary vessel of God within. He went about preaching all over France. However he had very few followers and fewer that would listen and be converted away from Albigensianism. In fact, more and more were following the heresy teaching.

St. Francis is known as the patron saint of animals and of ecology. He called all creatures brothers and sisters, and he called the sun, “brother sun,” and the moon, “sister moon.” He understood the inner workings and incredible divine interconnection between all and saw the love of God as the thread that held us together in fine and divine balance...
