August 8th - Saint Dominic

Even though the feast of Saint Dominic falls on a Sunday this year, Dominicans throughout the world will celebrate this day in honour of our founder. I wish all readers of this blog every blessing on this day. The Dominican blessing below is from the thirteenth century:

May God the Father bless us,
May God the Son heal us,
May the Holy Spirit enlighten us and give us eyes to see with,
Ears to hear with,
And hands to do the work of God with,
Feet to walk with,
And a mouth to preach the word of salvation with,
And the angel of peace to watch over us and lead us at last,
By our Lord's gift, to the Kingdom
