This simple union (Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary entrusted to the Dominicans over 500 years ago) had joined kings and princes, popes and saints with the common people of the world in one great unending chain of prayer to Mary. - James Gerard Shaw from his 1954 book,"Our Lady of the Cape."

Excerpt from Fr. Damian Byrne's (Past Master General of the Order of Preachers) 1985 letter to the Dominicans.
Membership of the Rosary Confraternity implied a great deal more than having one's name in a register and promising to say certain prayers. It meant assuming the authority of an elder brother, of knowing how to put the robe of mercy on your brother's or sister's back; how to put the shoes of freedom on their feet and the ring of covenant friendship on their finger. Hencetorth all would be one and walk like a prince in the royal household. Cf "Alanus Redivivus".
