Les Dominicains  

Posted by Catholicwebdirectory in , , , , , , , , , , ,

The Dominicans were founded in 1216, in the south of France by St. Dominic de Guzman. He left no personal writings but an inspiration founder who is at the origin of the structures and lifestyle brothers and sisters. 

This inspiration is still capable after eight years to generate a fervent desire to join the adventure he started. What characterizes the powerful spiritual experience and holiness of Dominica, is a passionate desire to give salvation to the whole of humanity as did Christ himself. 

The branches of the Dominican Family are numerous: brothers, nuns, congregations of sisters contemplative and apostolic, lay in fraternities or secular institutes, secular priests in brotherhood. "Each has its own character, its autonomy. But participating in all the charisma of Saint Dominic, they share among themselves a unique vocation to be preachers in the Church. (Chapter Mexico, 1992)
