Saint Dominic’s Day Reflection
Feast Day August 8th

What would Saint Dominic be preaching in the United States today? Is Saint Dominic’s preaching relevant for our times, or was it solely aimed at his own?

There are so many ways to approach these questions. One way is to revisit Dominic’s last will and testament: “Let your treasure be voluntary poverty, guard humility, have charity.” Not only did Saint Dominic live this message, these were the values that he yearned to transmit to his followers, like you and me! Wouldn’t you agree that our contemporary culture is in need of these values? For me, the Dominican tradition propels me to face the challenges in our country like consumerism, greed, and fundamentalism with hope, courage, and compassion. As you grapple with the meaning of Dominic’s deathbed legacy for you, try to discover how you can be an incarnation of Dominic’s wildest vision here in the United States and beyond.

My prayer for you on this feast of our founder Saint Dominic is
that you grow in your commitment to BE the GOOD NEWS OF JESUS CHRIST in our times, much like Dominic was in his.
