At Prayer with Saint Dominic

Fr. Michael Monshau, O.P.


This small series of books on prayer presents a wonderful opportunity for Saint Dominic's relatively unpublicized life of prayer to be shared with others. Dominic lived in a milieu in which popular devotion quickly surrounded notable holy persons after their deaths. However, the earliest Dominicans discouraged the development of such devotion in Dominic’s case. They were concerned that if the man were emphasized, his work—the Holy Preaching—would be neglected, and the Holy Preaching is clearly what Dominic's life was all about.This book contains fifteen meditation to help the reader appreciate the many facets of St. Dominic that made him such a dynamic preacher and holy man. Each mediation also includes a scripture passage to several suggested prayer exercises. There is only so much a person can learn about holiness by reading and much more that can be learned by praying.
