You should put away the old self of your former way of life, and put on the new self, created in God's way in righteousness and holiness of truth.

- Ephesians 4:22, 24




Happy Feast Day!  August 8, St. Dominic!  Check out the bas-relief above the side altar on the right, of Mary and St. Dominic!  Notice the dog with the torch in its mouth!  The flaming torch is a powerful symbol in the life and the tradition of our patron Saint Dominic.  When Dominic’s mother was pregnant, she had a vivid dream of a dog with a flaming torch in its mouth running through a darkened world.  As it ran, the torch shone with such brilliance that the shadows melted away and the landscape was filled with light.  Dominic’s mother was given to understand that the dog represented her unborn son, Dominic.  The darkness represented sin, untruth, illusion, self-deception, hatred, violence, and every form of evil in the world.  The flaming torch was the Light of Christ! Her son Dominic would carry the Light of Christ to the world by his preaching!  How prophetic that the followers of her son, the Dominicans, would be called the Order of Preachers!

At our baptisms, our parents and godparents were given a lighted candle on our behalf, with the words: “Receive the Light of Christ!”  They prayed that we would walk always as children of the light.  They prayed that we would keep the flame of faith alive in our hearts.  As disciples of Jesus Christ and members of St. Dominic Parish, we honor our patron saint by spreading the flame of God’s light and love in our world! 

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has upgraded Hamilton County from “moderate” to “substantial” spread.  The Covid delta variant is the enemy this time.  For this reason, I encourage folks who feel the need to insure their safety to wear a mask at Mass.
