    Does such a place exist? Anywhere worldwide? I'm not yet consecrated and my marriage not yet annulled but it will be due to spousal abuse and alcoholism. I'm on disability and would love to raise my sons in a Catholic community where I can afford to live.

    Sports. That sports may always be occasions of human fraternity and growth.
    Lay Missionaries.* That the Holy Spirit may support the work of the laity who proclaim the Gospel in the poorest countries.

    My husband and I are both lay Dominicans. Is there anywhere we can move to physically be part of a Dominican neighborhood or community? We have 2 small kids.

    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!

    "Let us say boldly with St. Bernard that we have need of a mediator with the Mediator Himself, and that it is the divine Mary who is the most capable of filling that charitable office. It was through her that Jesus Christ came to us, and it is through her that we must go to Him. If we fear to go directly to Jesus Christ, our God, whether because of His infinite greatness or because of our vileness or because of our sins, let us boldly implore the aid and intercession of Mary, our Mother. She is good, she is tender, she has nothing in her austere and forbidding, nothing too sublime and too brilliant. In seeing her, we see our pure nature."

    Good meditation !.....

    "God is sanctified or hallowed in the minds of other men through us, to the extent that we are sanctified by Him. Hence when we say: ‘hallowed by Thy name,’ we pray, as Cyprian remarks, that God’s name may be hallowed in us. Following the lead of Christ, who says: ‘Be holy, because I am holy,’ we beg that we, who have been sanctified in Baptism, may persevere in the state in which we began."

    Blessed Margaret Ebner
    (Nun & Virgin)

    Bl. Margaret Ebner was born in 1291 at Donauworth
    in Bavaria and made her profession at the
    Dominican Monastery of Maria Medingen in
    1306. By her own account her true conversion to
    God began in 1311 when she was 20 years old.
    Soon after she became seriously ill and was
    bedridden for nearly 13 years; these years of
    suffering and prayer brought her to the heights
    of contemplative union with God. She became
    one of the more prominent of the Rhineland
    mystics, known to both John Tauler and Henry
    Suso. She left an account of her mystical experiences
    in her Spiritual Journal (Revelationes) and
    wrote a treatise on the Lordʹs Prayer. She died
    on June 20, 1351.

    ~Blessed Sadoc
    (Friar & Priest, & Companions, Martyrs)

    According to tradition Bl. Sadoc received the
    habit from St. Dominic himself at the General
    Chapter of Bologna in 1221 was chosen to
    accompany Master Paul of Hungary, who had
    been commissioned to establish a province in
    Hungary. Later Bl. Sadoc moved on to Poland
    where he preached the gospel for nearly forty
    years. In 1260 he and 48 members of the
    Dominican community at Sandomierz were
    martyred by the Tartars as they were singing the
    Salve Regina at Compline. The custom of singing
    the Salve Regina at the deathbed of Dominicans
    stems from this incident.

    Hi Irishdoc,
    I'm not positive, but I think there's a way to be part of a chapter on-line. You should contact the head of your province.

    Bl. Mary Bartholomew Bagnesi
    (Lay Dominican & Virgin)

    Blessed Mary Bartholomew Bagnesi was born in
    Florence on August 15, 1514, and there received the
    habit of a Sister of Penance in 1547. For 45 years she
    was confined to her bed and with great courage bore
    the pains she suffered. By her spirit of faith and
    acceptance of God’s will, she was able to encourage
    and console many who came to her. She died on
    May 28, 1577, and was buried at the Carmelite
    monastery in Florence.

    I have spent a great deal time praying about lay roles in one of the orders. After much prayer and study, I believe I am being lead to lay Dominicans. However I live in Oklahoma City, Is there a way I can pursue this even though none of the available groups are in Oklahoma?

    ~ 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
