Thoughts on Dominicans Leaving Arizona State University PDF Print E-mail

Here's a blog post from a young man who writes for the Phoenix diocesan newspaper who covered the "Dominicans through the Decades" celebration at Arizona State University two weekends ago.  In it he mentions the "spiritual residue" left on him by his association with Dominicans both as a university student and as a student at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology in Berkeley, CA.

If you'd like to read an article by the same author that appeared in the Phoenix Catholic Sun, click here.

Here's a sample of his post, in which he gives a great compliment: God touched his life through Dominicans!

What I’m saying is that it wasn’t this extraordinary event that felt somehow foreign or exceptional. I certainly wasn’t a painful goodbye or anything like that. It just felt like going to dinner with my family, catching up with cousins. And I think it feels like that because the Dominicans over the years have left their spiritual residue all over that place. Those of us who are familiar with it will feel that residue well after the Dominicans are gone.

Let me belabor this some more: When I was at the Newman Center, there were all these stories about Fr. Tom DeMan. He would draw Catholics and non-Catholics alike with his preaching, overflowing the church; there was great spiritual renewal during his tenure; he was a great confessor, that kind of thing. Anyway, I’d never met him. Then I went to the Dominican School and met this other lay student, Patrick Finn. He started talking about this priest that ran the Newman Center at University of Washington. “Fr. Tom DeMan is brilliant,” he said. “Oh sure, I know him,” I found myself saying. I knew him because of this spiritual residue that he’d left behind.

The new church building, which Fr. Nathan started planning for, will have his fingerprints and spiritual residue on it. And Fr. Daniel’s favorite homily to preach — “You are a good and holy people” — will reverberate through its walls. I’ll never forget this homily from Fr. Fred Lucci, in which he talked about euthanasia. He pointed out the great lack of humility of those who, suffering from a terminal illness, take their own lives. Letting another person take care of you is humbling and it’s good for the caregiver, he said. You can’t deny a person the opportunity to take care of you when you can’t take care of yourself. You’re denying them the opportunity to love. That homily would have taken any other priest 45 minutes to preach — but Fr. Fred preached it in about 12.

When the Canadian government established a series of entomological laboratories during the 1910s, crop protection was a domain where provincial governments were already busy providing technical support to local agricultural associations. The establishment of regional laboratories resulted from the adoption of the Destructive Insect and Pest Act in 1910, legislation that portrayed insect outbreaks as an interprovincial or an international problem under federal jurisdiction. The natural order conceptualized by federal scientists and legalized by the Canadian Parliament initiated a process of centralization. As the knowledge produced by the federal scientists reinforced representation of natural phenomena that legitimated their involvement across the national territory, the federal government concurrently achieved a political order by which it exerted its power over both nature and nation.
