Saint Dominic's Way of LIfe

main image

As part of our celebration of the 800th Anniversary of the death of our parish patron, St. Dominic, we encourage you to learn more about him by reading the book, “Saint Dominic’s Way of Life: A Path to Knowing and Loving God,” by Patrick Mary Briscoe, OP and Jacob Bertrand Janczyk, OP.

Pope Francis said, "St Dominic’s great call was to preach the Gospel of God’s merciful love in all its saving truth and redemptive power, showing the inseparability of faith and charity.”  There is much we can learn from St. Dominic's spirituality.

The best selling author and retreat master, Fr. Jacques Philippe said, “This beautiful book allows us to get to know Saint Dominic better, who was so close to God and so full of compassion for all the sufferings of his time. He is a shining example of what we are called to do today: seek God with all our heart to pour out the balm of his merciful love on all the plagues of our world.” 

We will take online orders with payment of $15 through November 1, 2021

Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic

main image

if you have read this book in the past, now may be a good time to bring it out again and re-read. If you are feeling adrift during our current environment, prayer can be the rock that keeps you grounded.

Taken from the book "The Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic," by Matthew Kelly.

The Prayer Process provides a consistent format to guide you in your daily prayer. The first barrier to entry for most people who feel drawn to prayer is that they simply don’t know how to pray. They have never been taught to pray.

The Prayer Process overcomes this  first barrier by providing people with a format and a method. It provides the routine within the routine that dynamic Catholics have spent decades developing through the painstaking process of trial and error.

The Prayer Process:

1 Gratitude: Begin by thanking God in a personal dialogue for whatever you are most grateful for today.

2 Awareness: Revisit the times in the past twenty-four hours when you were and were not the-best-version-of-your-self. Talk to God about these situations and what you learned from them.

3 Significant Moments: Identify something you experienced in the last twenty-four hours and explore what God might be trying to say to you through that event (or person).

4 Peace: Ask God to forgive you for any wrong you have committed (against yourself, another person, or Him) and to fill you with a deep and abiding peace.

5 Freedom: Speak with God about how He is inviting you to change your life, so that you can experience the freedom to be the-best-version-of-yourself.

6 Others: Lift up to God anyone you feel called to pray for today, asking God to bless and guide them.

7 Pray the Our Father.

How to be Holy

main image

Do you think that holiness is for other people? Many of us think of it as something that the priest or deacon is supposed to be, but not us. Or we think of holiness as some sort of unattainable perfection. Both of which are wrong.

Peter Kreeft has many good books, but "How To Be Holy," reminds us that everybody is called to holiness and to be a saint. In very practical terms, he talks about what that means and how it can be achieved.
