St. Dominic is often shown in art with a dog.
I think he should be the patron of poodles.
[According to the Golden Legend St. Dominic's mother while pregnant dreamed that she would give birth to a dog who would hold a torch in its mouth and would "burn the world." It has been suggested that the dog represents a pun on Dominicanus, the word for a Dominican friar, and domini canis, "dog of the Lord." At any rate, a dog is often shown at the saint's feet holding a torch in its mouth.]
Did you know there are Dominican nuns?
Did you know that Debbie Reynolds became a nun
in order to launch her signing career?
I never knew that?
(I just made that up BTW.)
The real singing nun: Sister Luc-Gabrielle
Did you know she eventually left the convent and became a lesbian?
A postulant once told me that is what happens to:
A) celebrity nuns
B) who leave the convent.
There is a former Dominican priest - self-described near genius - who left
to become a homosexual.
He has a blog but I can't link to it because
of the nude photos.
Which proves that homosexuality
is a form of idolatry.
*Today, Dominican friars enjoy barbecues,
although at one time they
had more serious work to do...
Modified Dominican habit for men.
(Strict observance friars prefer fleece hoodies.)
Blessed Virgin gives the habit to St. Dominic.
Our Lady gave him everything...
Happy feast day!
St. Dominic, pray for us!
