Preaching with Scripture Videos

In the book of Romans, (10:14) the apostle asks, “And how are they to hear without someone preaching?”

Preaching is at the very heart of the Dominican Order; not only do we contemplate, we are missioned to share the fruits of our contemplation with others. In these videos, our Sisters and women of faith share the fruits of their own contemplation.


  • How the Good Samaritan was Called by God by Sr. June Fitzgerald, OP (11 minutes) — Sr. June offers a reflection on the Gospel reading, Luke 10: 35-37, and talks about how God uses our daily life experiences to touch us, to guide us, to call us to new possibilities. She comments on how like the Good Samaritan was called as he was on his daily trek to respond to a need, the call to religious life can happen in everyday times and circumstances. Sr. June encourages discerners to be open to hearing God’s invitation in their lives and to respond in whatever way is best for oneself and for God’s kingdom.
