Among the many shots I took of Caleruega a few years ago during our two visits there, this image of Santo Domingo de Guzman (St. Dominic) is one that I like best. The garden surrounding his image is just so lovely and beautiful that you can’t help clicking your camera. Today, the Dominican Community is celebrating St. Dominic’s Feast Day. I remember my years of stay at University of Santo Tomas wherein every August 08 is a holiday too and I am blessed with some Dominican priest friends who pray for me and my family.
I wish to share this prayer to St. Dominic from the site stdominic.webhero.com/st-dominic-prayer.
Wonderful Saintly Founder of the eloquent Order of Preachers and friend of St. Francis of Assisi, you were a fiery defender of the Faith and a fighter against the darkness of heresy. You resembled a great star that shone close to the world and pointed to the Light which was Christ.
Help astronomers to study the stars and admire their wonderful Maker,
proclaiming: “Give glory to God in the highest!” Amen.
Happy Feast Day to all my Dominican friends out there!
