St. Dominic

Today is the Feast day of St. Dominic. Unknown to many even to the parishioners of Sto Domingo parish in Quezon City where we went to Mass this morning. I myself only found out after the kids came home with a letter and envelope asking for a donation for the Dominican missionaries. Sto Domingo church has been renamed to Our Lady of La Naval and Sto Domingo Parish Church. There are many devotees of Our Lady of La Naval, which celebrates its feast day in October. Maybe this is why too few celebrate the feast day of Sto Domingo. I really do want to read more on the life of St. Dominic. What an incredible contribution St. Dominic made to the Church and how many priests look up to him as an example of their life as preachers.

From the above website link, I found the following quote from St. Dominic: "The enemies of the faith cannot be overcome like that," he said. "Arm yourself with prayer instead of a sword; be clothed with humility instead of fine raiment."

St. Dominic de Guzman, pray for us.
