Dominican Spirituality: A Retreat with the Life and Lands of St. Dominic
Date: December 2013
Duration: 4 hours 58 minutes
You are invited to experience the life-changing power of Dominican spirituality in this inspiring retreat with St. Dominic.
Dominican spirituality calls all of us to bear witness to the power of God in our own lives. As you journey through the life and lands of St. Dominic, you will come to realize this power more fully.
Born in twelfth-century Spain to a comfortable existence, Dominic de Guzman relinquished his earthly possessions and founded the Order of Preachers (commonly known as the Dominicans). The Dominican tradition gave rise to such influential theologians as St. Thomas Aquinas, powerful mystics as St. Catherine of Siena, artists like Fra Angelico, and countless other inspiring men and women.
You will see St. Dominic not only as a saint and founder of the Order of Preachers, but also as your brother and friend. You will begin by taking a virtual pilgrimage through his life, following his journey through Spain, France, and Italy. You will visit many of the places holy to St. Dominic as you learn of his life story and the foundation of the Order of Preachers.
Dominic always saw the potential in people, relied totally on the Providence of God, and was dedicated to mission. Dominicans and non-Dominicans alike will cherish this retreat, which invites you to experience your spiritual geography.
