Today we celebrate the Feast of the Translation of St Dominic in 1233 to a tomb in the Dominican Church, Bologna.
I have been made a servant of the Gospel by a gift of grace from God who gave it to me by the workings of his power. I who am the least of God’s holy people, have been entrusted with this special grace, of proclaiming to the Gentiles the unfathomable treasure of Christ, and of throwing light on the inner workings of the mystery kept hidden through all the ages in God, the Creator of everything. The purpose of this was, that now through the Church, the principalities and ruling forces should learn how deep is the wisdom of God, according to the plan which he had formed from all eternity in Christ Jesus our Lord. Eph. 3: 7-10
Dominic Prayed without ceasing both night and day. Lord, let the holiness and teaching of our father Dominic come to the aid of your Church. May he help us now with his prayers as he once inspired people by his preaching. Amen
