Item description for Praying with the Dominicans: To Praise, to Bless, to Preach by Op John Vidmar & Maureen Sullivan...

Ever since St. Dominic de Guzman founded the Order of Preachers 800 years ago, Dominican men and women have continued to shape Catholic spirituality, challenging the faithful to know God in their minds and to love God in their hearts. Praying with the Dominicans is a wellspring of Dominican prayer from the thirteenth to the twentieth centuries. Dominican spirituality emphasizes the goodness of the created world as the handiwork of a loving God. Author John Vidmar, OP, presents a generous sampling of this rich spiritual tradition in the form prayers, meditations, poems, hymns, devotions, and reflections. Within this book the reader will find an account of St. Dominic's nine ways of prayer, along with the Eucharistic writings of Thomas Aquinas. St. Catherine of Siena is prominently featured, as are contemporary English Dominicans Timothy Radcliffe and Bede Jarrett, Dominican theologian Mary Catherine Hilkert, Dominican inspirational poet Maryanna Childs, and many others. Also included are selections representing the vibrant tradition of Dominican Marian devotion. Illustrations and musical samples accompany the text. No comparable single-volume source offers such a diverse collection of Dominican prayer and thought. This book will guide, enlighten, and inspire anyone who wishes to experience the dynamic charism of the Order of Preachers.

Reviews - What do customers think about Praying with the Dominicans: To Praise, to Bless, to Preach?

An interesting guide   Mar 28, 2008
We are fortunate in the southern Massachusetts area to have Dominican priests accessible to us. Many of us and/or our children have attended Dominican schools and colleges.

Being able to access through Father John Vidmar's book many of the elements of spirituality that nourishes people called to God's service provided the beginnings of a Lenten journey for our family.

Naturally, we thought there were to be secrets revealed, and special prayers and invocations described, but there were not to be any sensational shortcuts to sainthood revealed. No free passes.

In this book we found that the path to a strong spiritual life and a dedication to God , is a life long pursuit, and its foundations are given to us through our faith and instruction.

Vidmar's book brings the elements of prayer, reflection and song that are important in understanding the Dominican Life in a format that can be referenced by lay people like us into our own blessings,prayer, mass, and general life, to further enrich our faith experience.

It has value for all Christians.
