    I got St. Dominic, thank you! I have been a scientist and astronomer by training but am now in bioethics. Hoping St. Dominic will help with debunking the craze for science as a new religion! Also ask him to look after my large family of boys and instill into them a love of Jesus and Our Lady and a deep knowledge of the Catholic faith.
    Many thanks

    St. Dominic, please intercede for the homeless and those who lost a home and a job. They live under the bridge now and no one visits them. Please open up more soup kitchens to feed the hungry. Also help those who are sick. Pray for them.

    My confirmation name is Dominic after this great saint. St. Dominic was a humble servant to the faith, his order, and to his community.

    Dear St Dominic, fiery hound of the Lord, keep me faithful to the Rosary, that I may reap its mighty spiritual and material benefits. Protect us from the works and pomps of the devil, that are played out in our day to day lives by people whom we least expected. Grant us your loving care and pray for us unceasingly. I pray for my dear Dominican priest and friend whom I've lost contatct with. May he be well. Amen
