Dominican study

Wednesday, November 15, 2006
The Dominican constitutions speak as follows about the place of study in our form of life:

St Dominic in founding the Order was truly innovative: he intimately linked study to the ministry of salvation. He himself always carried around with him St Matthew's gospel and St Paul's letters. He directed the brothers to the schools, and sent them to 'study, preach and establish convents' in the larger cities.

It follows that our study should principally and zealously be directed to this, that we may be of help to the souls of our neighbours. Study enables the brothers to ponder in their hearts the manifold wisdom of God, and equips them for the doctrinal service of the Church and of all people.They ought to be all the more committed to study because in the Order's tradition they are called to stimulate people's desire to know the truth
