St. Dominic

Tomorrow we celebrate the feast day of our Father, St. Dominic!

(Church of St. Vincent Ferrer, NYC)

God has used and continues to use the Order of Preachers to defend His Church and proclaim His Truth. For nearly 800 years, Dominicans have worked untiringly to save souls. Every day, they strive to faithfully live their motto: "To Praise, To Bless, To Preach."

If you want a brief glimpse into the life of St. Dominic and the various ways in which he prayed take a look here and here. The Dominican Province of St. Joseph has a  phenomenal website well worth your time. Want to look into The Dominican Soul?

Maybe God is calling you to a vocation as as Lay Dominican. Check us out!

Why not honor this great saint today by offering the following  prayer attributed to him:

“May God the Father who made us bless us.
May God the Son send his healing among us.
May God the Holy Spirit move within us and
give us eyes to see with, ears to hear with, and
hands that your work might be done. May we
walk and preach the word of God to all. May
the angel of peace watch over us and lead us
at last by God's grace to the Kingdom.”

St. Dominic pray for us!
