Dominic

Today on the Anglican and Roman Catholic calendars they are remembering Dominic a 13th century Priest and Friar.  He was the founder of the Order of Preachers (O.P.) and was known for his logical and persuasive arguments for the orthodox Christian faith.  In a time when force and violence substituted for religious conversion, he stood out as a light in the darkness.

Prayer

O God of the prophets, who opened the eyes of your servant Dominic to perceive a famine of hearing the word of the Lord, and moved him, and those he drew about him, to satisfy that hunger with sound preaching and fervent devotion: Make your Church, dear Lord, in this and every age, attentive to the hungers of the world, and quick to respond in love to those who are perishing; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
