A Penitent Blogger

Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?

The Dominican is dedicated to truth

"The Dominican is dedicated to truth, for God is truth.

"It is sacred truth, saving truth, that primarily concerns us here.

"God has called us into the intimacy of his own Trinitarian life, so that as sons in the Son we can cry out Abba, Father.

"And we are meant one day to see the glory, the power, the love, beauty, wisdom of God face to face.

"While we are on pilgrimage, we share in God’s own self-knowledge through faith in Him, as He reveals Himself in the Word made flesh and the Word as preached. The truth convicts, the truth redeems, the truth saves.

"The Dominican is to live in that truth, to be converted and sanctified by it, and to preach it."
