    I am so excited to join this group. I am a new Roman Catholic, but I am hoping to be a lay Dominican one day. I love St. Dominic and I was so glad to celebrate his feast day for the first time yesterday. It was so wonderful. I have been confused about a lot of things lately, but yesterday was just so wonderful and I went to Mass and said the rosary with my friends and the world just seemed a simpler and more beautiful place. I am so happy to be here.

    I am here because I absolutely love the Dominican Spirituality and am considering entering with a Dominican community, just not sure which one yet. I am doing on a retreat with the Dominican Sisters of Mary Mother of the Eucharist next month and I am also hoping to visit with the Dominican Nuns in Summit at some point during the summer. I love the Preaching of Truth in everything they do. I feel the world needs to hear the truth whether they like it or not.

    If I remember it correct, they're a fraternal community which was a sedeprivationist, but then reconciled with the Holy See. They adopted Dominican rite, yet they aren't a part of the Dominicans.

    Hello. This is my first new thread--please pardon any gaffes.

    1) what are you doing for St. Dominic's feast day? (Aug 8th, formerly Aug 4th, with an octave)
    2) Would you take this time to reflect on the past year, pray, and plan for the next? Consider the balance between active & contemplative life; our prayer, study, community, and preaching?

    I lurked on CAF a while last year and then left for a long time, but I was glad to see this group. I find myself without a local Dominican community--though the communion of saints is an amazing social network. I'm not sure how active this group is, but I'd like to be part of a virtual Dominican community.

    I'm using this time to reflect on my past year and pray and plan for the next year. I've had significant medical trouble since March 2011 (and had several months of no income, because I was too ill to work and ineligible for aid). Anyway, I've rounded a corner--Deo gratias. I was able to resume teaching in spring and just finished teaching a 6-wk Summer course yesterday. I'm still exhausted every day, but now I'll be able to return to my academic research, and I hope and pray to have my dissertation drafted by spring and filed in the summer. I have yet to face the rigors (and reputed horrors) of the academic job market for new humanities PhDs.

    Anyway, this is a good time to reflect and renew. It's been about 18 months since I made my profession as a Lay Dominican. The journey was rough this past year. Now that I'm resuming most of my work, it's time to think of the pillars of Dominican spirituality as they pertain to my current situation, my new chronic medical parameters and work responsibilities.

    In Sancto Patre Dominico,
    oops--a rather long first post!

    A letter which recently went out to all branches of the Dominican family on the subject of women and evangelization. As always, the Master writes with great clarity and love.

    ~ Meaning of the Eucharist ~

    Since it was the will of God's only-begotten Son that human beings should share in His Divinity, He assumed our nature in order that by becoming Human He might make humans gods. Moreover, when He took our flesh He dedicated the whole of it's substance to our salvation.

    He offered His Body to God the Father on the altar of the cross as a sacrifice for our reconciliation. He shed His blood for our ransom and purification, so that we might be redeemed from our wretched state of bondage and cleansed from all sin.

    But to ensure that the memory of so great a gift would abide with us forever, He left His Body as food and His Blood as drink for the faithful to consume in the form of bread and wine.

    O precious and wonderful banquet, that brings us salvation and contains all sweetness ! Could anything be of more intrinsic value ? Under the old law it was the flesh of calves and goats that was offered, but here Christ Himself, the true God, is set before us as our food. What could be more wonderful that this ?

    No other sacrament has greater healing power; through it sins are purged away, virtues are increased, and the soul is enriched with an abundance of every spiritual gift. It is offered in the Church for the living and the dead, so that what was instituted for the salvation of all may benefit all.

    Yet, in the end, no one can fully express the sweetness of this Sacrament, in which spiritual delight is tasted at its source, and in which we renew the memory of that surpassing love for us which Christ revealed in His Passion.

    It was to impress the vastness of this love more firmly upon the hearts of the faithful that our Lord instituted this Sacrament at the last supper. As He was on the point of leaving the world to go to the Father, after celebrating the Passover with His disciples, He left it as a perpetual Memorial of His Passion.

    It was the fulfillment of ancient figures and the greatness of all His miracles, while for those who were to experience the sorrow of His departure, it was destined to be a unique and abiding consolation.

    ~ St. Thomas Aquinas

    Almighty and ever-living God, I approach the sacrament of your only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. I come sick to the doctor of life, unclean to the fountain of mercy, blind to the radiance of eternal light, and poor and needy to the Lord of heaven and earth. Lord, in your great generosity, heal my sickness, wash away my defilement, enlighten my blindness, enrich my poverty, and clothe my nakedness.

    May I receive the bread of angels, the King of kings and Lord of lords, with
    humble reverence, with the purity and faith, the repentance and love, and the determined purpose that will help to bring me to salvation. May I receive the sacrament of the Lord's Body and Blood, and its reality and power.

    Kind God, may I receive the Body of your only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus
    Christ, born from the womb of the Virgin Mary, and so be received into His
    mystical Body and numbered among his members. Loving Father, as on my
    earthly pilgrimage I now receive your beloved Son, under the veil of a
    sacrament, may I one day see Him Face to face in glory, who lives and reigns
    with You for ever. Amen.

    ~ For All Souls ~

    Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.

    For the souls of the departed Friars, Brothers & Sisters of the Dominican Order and for the departed members of the Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary:

    Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

    Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

    Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.

    O most gentle Heart of Jesus, ever present in the Blessed Sacrament, ever consumed with burning love for the poor captive souls in purgatory, have mercy on the souls of Thy departed servants. Be not severe in Thy judgments, but let some drops of Thy Precious Blood fall upon the devouring flames. And do Thou, O merciful Saviour, send Thy holy angels to conduct them to a place of refreshment, light and peace. Amen.

    Hi everyone. I just started getting involved on CAF, and, as a discerning young man, I'm attracted to Dominican spirituality. I thought it would be a good idea to join this group.
    Thanks and God bless!

    Welcome lucia kay !

    Yes, we also celebrated St. Dominic's feast day at Mass yesterday. It was a blessing. Our pastor Fr. Francis, whom is Carmelite, really did a great homily honoring St. Dominic.
