DSC00149

“Of all the preachers of the divine Word who have worked for the salvation of souls in England,” wrote Cardinal Bourne, Archbishop of Westminister in 1926, “there is no one – in our opinion – to whom we are more indebted than the Servant of God, Dominic of the Mother of God. I should consider myself happy if I had the power and right to dedicate this whole Diocese to his care and protection and be allowed to honour him as our Patron and Protector in England.”

– quoted in Blessed Dominic Barberi, C.P., Apostle of Unity by Alfred Wilson, C.P., p. 1

PRAYER

Lord, you sent Blessed Dominic to seek out the lost sheep of your flock by preaching the truth and witnessing to your love. May we follow his example and build up the unity of the Church as a sign of faith and love. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
