The Life of St. Dominic - Rev. Bede Jarrett, O.P.
By Rev. Bede Jarrett, O.P.
Saint Dominic, founder of the Order of Preachers, commonly known as the Dominican Order, was born at Calaroga, Old Castile circa 1170 and died on August the 6th, 1221. His life was one of tireless effort in the service of God. While he journeyed from place to place he prayed and preached almost uninterruptedly. If he abominated heresy and laboured untiringly for its extirpation it was because he loved truth and loved the souls of those among whom he laboured. The failure of the fire at Fanjeaux, to consume the dissertation he had employed against the heretics, and which was thrice thrown into the flames; the raising to life of Napoleone Orsini; the appearance of the angels in the refectory of Saint Sixtus in response to his prayers, are but a few of the supernatural happenings by which God was pleased to attest the eminent holiness of His servant.
