I confess: on the Eve of the Feast of St. Dominic, I was reading about the life of St. Vincent de Paul.

But atone for my faithlessness, I thought it would be fun to contemplate some of the ways that St. Dominic and his Order have been depicted. Here's one I like:

Allegory of the Active and Triumphant Church and of the Dominican order" by Andrea Bonaiuti.



Hey, Fr. Mike! I've been hanging with Dominicans for most of my Catholic life. I think I've got the hang of the "active" part. So when does the "triumphant" bit start to kick in???????

Hello? Fr. Mike? Fr. Mike?

Hmmm.

OP's. Have you ever noticed that they are never around when you really need them?
