The pillars of Dominican life

 

 

PrayerPrayer

We Dominicans center our lives on Jesus Christ, the true light, and are moved by the Holy Spiriti who radiates God's healing presence in the world today. We celebrate the Word in daily common prayer, meditation, study, and in the proclamation that is preaching. Our lives are nourished by God's Word as spoken in sacred scripture, celebrated in the Eucharist, and encountered in everday life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

CommunityCommunity Life

For Dominicans, the communal dimension of our religious life challenges to us to be of "one mind and one heart in God." Profession into the Order of Preachers includes the promise to hold all things in common. We live together and pray together and share a common vision in the ministry of Preaching. It was St. Dominic's desire to imitate the apostolic poverty of Jesus and the early church, so "we call nothing our own." As Dominicans, we share our blessings with the rest of the world.

 

 

 

 

Study

StudySt. Dominic made stuy an essential part of the "Sacred Preaching." This was no small innovation in the thirteenth century when most of the clergy were uneducated. St. Dominic sent the friars to the universities to study, to preach, and to establish places of learning. The dedication to study and teaching continues today. The Dominican emphasis on study opens our hearts and minds more fully to the human condition today, continues to build on a rich history and tradition and has its ultimate effect on our preaching and teaching.

 

 

 

Frère Rick van LierMinistry

As Dominican Friars, we continue the work of St. Dominic today in an active and contemplative life. Our mission includes preaching, teaching, and works of social justice in a variety of settings: campus ministry, parishes, colleges, universites, and retreats. We are inolved in full-time itinerant preaching, health care as chaplains and ethicists, and in the arts. In our outreach to the poor we work for truth, justice, and peace in today's society though our parishes, campus ministries, and involvement in the local and universal church.

Our mission

Our Constitutions define our mission in the following way: "The principal reason we are gathered together is that we dwell together in harmony and have one mind and one heart in God, in other words, that we be found perfect in charity. . . Our Order is known to have been founded from the beginning expressly for preaching and the salvation of souls. ...This end we ought to pursue, preaching and teaching from the abundance and fulness of contemplation in imitation of our most holy Father Dominic, who spoke only with God or of God for the benefit of souls."
