Celebrating the Feast of Our Founder, Dominic de Guzman

It is said that when Dominic saw Heaven in a dream, he was brokenhearted to see no saints of the Order of Preachers standing before God. Feeling pity, the Lord called him over to the Blessed Virgin, saying, “I have entrusted your Order to my Mother.”  When Mary opened her cape, he saw many Dominican brothers and sisters, safe under her special protection.

Dominican Sister of Peace Sr. Thoma Swanson created Under Mary’s Mantle, which imagines this blessed event.
