st. Dominic vessel of grace pray for us

On 8th of August we celebrate the solemnity of our Holy Father St. Dominic.

May his zeal re-kindle the world with love for God and neighbor.

St. Dominic, Spanish in full Santo Domingo de Guzmán, (born c. 1170, Caleruega, Castile [Spain]—died August 6, 1221, Bologna, Romagna [Italy]; canonized July 3, 1234; feast day August 8), founder of the Order of Friars Preachers (Dominicans), a mendicant religious order with a universal mission of preaching, a centralized organization and government, and a great emphasis on scholarship. He is a patron saint of the Dominican Republic and of astronomers.

At the time of Dominic’s death, Blessed Guala Romanoni, O.P., was said to have beheld a beautiful vision:

“He saw an opening, in heaven, by which two bright ladders descended. The top of one was held by Christ, the other by His Mother; on either one, angels ascended and descended. At the bottom of the two ladders, in the middle, was placed a seat, and on it sat one who seemed to be a brother of the Order, with his face covered by his hood, as we are wont to bury our dead. Christ the Lord and His Mother pulled the ladders up little by little, until the one who was sitting at the bottom reached the top. He was then received into heaven, in a cloud of light, with angels singing,” writes Blessed Jordan of Saxony, O.P., in the Libellus de principiis Ordinis Praedicatorum.
