Benedict XVI on Dominic

From one man in white to another.  In his General Audience yesterday Pope Benedict discussed, albeit briefly, the life and work of St. Dominic Guzman, the founder of the Order of Preachers, more commonly known as the Dominican Order.  If you don’t follow me on Plurk, let me only say that the life of this great saint has become the subject of considerable interest for me in the past several months.  Starting with, of all things, a childrens’ book, I’ve found myself fascinated by this man who saw the hurt and pain that poor formation and catechesis can cause and set out without a care for himself to preach the Truth.  St Dominic, ora pro nobis!

    Recently completed reading a biography on St. Dominic: The Grace of the Word by Guy Bedouelle, OP

    It was a wonderful and well documented read.
