The Angel of the Lord Declared unto Joseph: The Angelus of Joseph and the Call to Men Watch

Image of The dream of Joseph. During what are often called the hidden years, because we have little in the Gospel text about them, Jesus was with Joseph and Joseph was with Jesus.

Image of As a result of his clear teaching and heroic virtue, men began to gather around Dominic. They wanted to imitate him as he imitated Christ (1 Cor. 11:1) and live a devout Christian way of life. The Order of Preachers (OP) was formed and spread as a seed of renewal for the whole Church. They dedicated themselves to instructing the faithful in the truths of the faith. They refuted the errors which had undermined and weakened the Church. These followers later come to be popularly referred to as Dominicans, after the man whom the Lord used to gather them to Himself.

Today we honor Saint Dominic. As the thirteenth century began, great errors were deceiving many of the faithful in the south of France. ... continue reading
