Study and Contemplation in the Dominican Order

Many of the enquiries to the Vocations office of the Irish Dominican friars are concerned about the role of study and contemplation in the Dominican tradition. I recently came across this excellent brief talk by the late fr Kurt Pritzl OP, who was then the dean of the school of philosophy at the Catholic University of America. Well worth a look and a listen!
