Founder of the Order of Friars Preachers (Dominicans), Dominic was well known for his attachment to truth, quick grasp of situations, maturity of reflection aided by long periods of prayer, and firmness in his decisions. Joined to these were a great capacity for instant rapport, sympathy, and enthusiasm; a great heart quickly moved to mercy; an attachment to confreres and friends; and courage. Above all, it was Dominic's love of neighbor, which he never separated from his love of the Church, that characterized his life.
Immerse yourself in the love of Jesus
As a cleric, Dominic had a keen sense of the needs of the Church of her hierarchy, and of her resources for action. He was completely dedicated in accepting and bearing the totality of her anxieties and burdens. Everything Dominic thought, said, and did was rooted in a strong and poignant love of the Savior. It was in the constant contact with the Christ of the Gospel that he discovered the importance of all the traditions of imitation of the Apostles, which he gathered together to speak only of God or with God.
Enjoy your time with Saint Dominic and be prepared to be surprised as you journey with one of the most engaging spiritual figures of all time.
