This is a very interesting question which requires much thought, even after we have the answer!  Pope Benedict XVI has supplied us with the answer.  He writes, "The meaning of Christ's Ascension expresses our belief that in Christ the humanity that we all share has entered into the inner life of God in a new and hitherto unheard-of-way.  It means that man has found an everlasting place in God...We go to heaven to the extent that we go to…

WHAT was Jesus thinking about on the Cross?

Actually we do know what Jesus was thinking about on the cross.  He had 'Seven Words' on the cross.  These words or sentences came right out of His gut as He was dying on the cross.  They are worth meditating on and asking ourselves what would we say on our death bed?  Notice how often He was concerned about others.  Which saying particularly strikes you?


1.  Father, forgive them. They know not what they are doing.

2.  Today you will be with me in…

We have now passed the half-way mark for Lent.  How are you doing?  Great?  That's terrific!  Just so-so?  Join the crowd.  It is human nature to need a pick-me-up during Lent.  A 'Tira mi su'.  It is good to reevaluate our situation.  And, most importantly, it is never too late to have a great Lent, leading to a truly wonderful Easter.


The Office of Readings for the third week, Tuesday, featured a sermon by St. Peter Chrysologus in which he said:  "There are three…

The Dominicans are fond of the saying, "If you've met one Dominican, you've met one Dominican."  The thing is we are all different.  We come from different backgrounds, educational levels, religious viewpoints.  We are different sexes, ages, races, etc.  Some are conservative;  some are liberal. This is why we accept all who wish to follow the 'Dominican Way of Life'.

We are united in our differences because we all follow Dominic who followed Christ.  It's a…

Please remember the following:   Pablo, Vyvian Gorbea's brother-in-law, 44 years old, who has suffered a stroke.  Our Vice-Moderater, Cheryl Beckman, is scheduled for an operation on March 21.  Lucy Chesney is having eye troubles.  Jim Knivel is still ailing.

Vyvian took quite a bit of food donations from our last meeting to Active Faith.  Check them out:  activefaithcs.org/1/230/index.asp  Thanks, Vyvian!

Hello Terry, Well this is the third message I've sent you. . . not quite savvy yet as to how it works.  Think I deleted the last one, don't know what happened to the first. Praise Jesus, I completed my onerous project this afternoon and so now I CAN come to the meeting on July 12, 2015.  I am so looking forward to it.  And thanks for the link to the formation materials for the first six months on the provincial web site.  That was a relief for me to know.  Take care and may God bless you abundantly.  In Christ, Paula Mahinske

I will do that. We meet on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.  I would be interested in visiting one of your chapter meetings.  Theresa R.

Ok, I hope you will recieve this. I am having a time trying to navigate this site a bit. There is a site called www.divineoffice.org that i've come across and was wondering if someone could check it out and give it a recommendation for or against its use. If it is a reputable tool then i would make great use of this site. Thank you!

Thank you Terry for your reply! =) I have a couple questions pertaining to the upcoming December meeting and about the possibility of formation. Karen Sabourin contacted me via e-mail informing me of the next meeting. I look forward to attending. My main concern is if it is too late to begin full on formation as well as learning what the process is like. I have been through 3 years of formation with the Secular Fransicans and am curious to know if the process is similar to the Fransican process of formation. My life is most full, focused, centered and alive when i'm living according to a rule. It is clear to me God desires me to study the Dominican rule. The years spent with the Fransicans revealed to me such richness and good. It revealed to me my intimate connection to St. Francis and St. Clare. At the same time my study showed me that these two men were connected and I too have a connection with St. Dominic in a special way. In the end I believe God put me through the formation with the Fransicans to learn how to live a better way but now He wants me to discover St. Dominic fully before accepting either the Fransican or Dominican way of life. It is most perfect in any case considering the intertwining of thier lives. It's as though I will better understand each by learning of the other. If I become Dominican or Fransican my studys will enhance whichever I am called to profess. Thank you dearly for your time and have a wonderful week.

Janice and I just want to make sure we are to bring items for lunch tomorrow, we already have everything, but wanted to make sure. Please advise. Also, when we bring the food, some of it needs to be cooled, where do you need it brought?

God Bless,

Phil and Janice

St. Dominic drew his strength and inspiration to live by his charism through his holiness and prayers. I may not come close to his holiness; I can only emulate him. His nine ways of prayer are classics; universal and timeless.

I'm really looking forward to the meeting this Sun. Someone mentioned a meeting for newcomers (formation?). Is it just prior to the regular meeting at 1? Thanks.

Thank you very much. I may bring my mother to the next meeting if that is OK.

It was a pleasure meeting you at the Open House today! I am planning to attend the next meeting in July. After reading the handouts I have a few questions: 1) When do I fill an application if I am interested in being considered as a lay Dominican? 2) I am familiar with the liturgy of the hours but do not know how to use the prayer book is that something that is learned as we attend the meetings?
