SAINT DOMINIC, Priest – Founder of the Order of Preachers (Dominicans) – Memoria: 8 August

08 Aug

Dominic was born at Calaruega in Spain about the year 1170. He studied theology at Palencia and became a canon of the Cathedral of Osma. He preached against the Albigensian heresy and because of the example of his own life this bore great fruit. In order to carry on and increase this work he gathered around him a group of companions and form the Order of Preachers (Dominicans). He died on 6 August in the year 1221 at Bologna.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, You gave Saint Dominic to the Church of his day as a great preacher of Your truth. We pray that he will help us in our time by his merits, his teaching and his unfailing prayer. We make our prayer in the most precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
