6 August 1221 – 800th Anniversary of the Death of St. Dominic. Imagine what things would be like without him.

Today is the 800th Anniversary of the Death of St. Dominic.

In other words it is also his “birth day”. The term used for the death of saints is “Dies Natalis“, one’s “birth” into heaven.

Imagine what things might have been like without St. Dominic.

No, I don’t think we have to. We are seeing something of what they would have been like.

However, God raises up certain saints in particular places and times to carry out important works of reform.

Shall we see the like of St. Dominic, founder of the Order or Preachers, again?

At least in the times we are living now we have had a Dominic, in our past, to help up now in example and in intercession.

St. Dominic, pray for us.

All Dominican saints, pray for us.
