St. Dominic - Banner BAN743

Artwork by the Benedictine Sisters of Turvey Abbey

Dominic, Priest. Preacher, Founder of the Dominicans; Order of Preachers.

Feast Day 8th August.

Dominic seemed set for a contemplative life in his native Spain. However, whilst travelling through France, he saw the need to challenge a heresy denying the Incarnation and the sacraments which was gaining hold. Realising the need to visibly practice the Gospel values he was preaching he and three Cistercians began itinerant preaching and begging for alms to sustain themselves.

In time he founded a religious house at Toulouse, according to the Rule of St. Augustine, this was the beginning of the Dominican Order of Preachers. Dominic favoured learning and the use of intellect so his house was one of study and prayer enabling the friars to minister salvation to all people through the word of God. 

Dominican mottos: 
'To contemplate and to pass on the fruits of contemplation.' 
'To praise, to bless, and to preach.' 

Dominic is portrayed with two of his common symbols: a star at his head (supposedly seen at his Baptism) and the Hound of the Lord, a dog carrying a flaming torch. This may have originated because Dominic's mother had a prophetic dream before he was born that he would be like a hound carrying forth the word of God symbolised as a flame. Or it could be a humorous play on the Latin term for Dominicans: Domini-canes (Domini meaning Lord, canes meaning hound).
