  • Title: Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati
    Descriptive info: Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati is a saint for the modern world, and especially for the young people of our time.. Born in 1901 in Turin, Italy, his time on earth was short-only 24 years-but he filled it passionately with holy living.. Pier Giorgio was a model of virtue, a man of the beatitudes, as Pope John Paul II called him at the saint's beatification ceremony in Rome on May 20, 1990.. He was described by friends as an explosion of joy.. As Pier Giorgio's sister, Luciana, says of her brother in her biography of him, He represented the finest in Christian youth: pure, happy, enthusiastic about everything that is good and beautiful.. To our modern world which is often burdened by cynicism and angst, Pier Giorgio's life offers a brilliant contrast, a life rich in meaning, purpose, and peace derived from faith in God.. From the earliest age, and despite two unreligious parents who misunderstood and disapproved of his piety and intense interest in Catholicism, Pier Giorgio placed Christ first in all that he did.. These parental misunderstandings, which were very painful to him, persisted until the day of his sudden death of polio.. However, he bore this treatment patiently, silently, and with great love.. Pier Giorgio prayed daily, offering, among other prayers, a daily rosary on his knees by his bedside.. Often his agnostic father would find him asleep in this position.. He gave his whole self, both in prayer and in action, in service to Christ, Luciana Frassati writes.. After Pier Giorgio began to attend Jesuit school as a boy, he received a rare permission in those days to take communion daily.. Sometimes he passed whole nights in Eucharistic adoration.. For Pier Giorgio, Christ was the answer.. Therefore, all of his action was oriented toward Christ and began first in contemplation of Him.. With this interest in the balance of contemplation and action, it is no wonder why Pier Giorgio was drawn in 1922 at the age of 21 to  ...   War I Italy.. He lived his faith, too, through discipline with his school work, which was a tremendous cross for him as he was a poor student.. Most notably, however, Pier Giorgio (like the Dominican St.. Martin de Porres) lived his faith through his constant, humble, mostly hidden service to the poorest of Turin.. Although Pier Giorgio grew up in a privileged environment, he never lorded over anyone the wealth and prestige of his family.. Instead, he lived simply and gave away food, money, or anything that anyone asked of him.. It is suspected that he contracted from the very people to whom he was ministering in the slums the polio that would kill him.. Even as Pier Giorgio lay dying, his final week of rapid physical deterioration was an exercise in heroic virtue.. His attention was turned outward toward the needs of others and he never drew attention to his anguish, especially since his own grandmother was dying at the same time he was.. Pier Giorgio's heart was surrendered completely to God's will for him.. His last concern was for the poor.. On the eve of his death, with a paralyzed hand, he scribbled a message to a friend, reminding the friend not to forget the injections for Converso, a poor man Pier Giorgio had been assisting.. When news of Pier Giorgio's death on July 4, 1925 reached the neighborhood and city, the Frassati parents, who had no idea about the generous self-donation of their young son, were astonished by the sight of thousands of people crowded outside their mansion on the day of their son's funeral Mass and burial.. The poor, the lonely, and those who had been touched by Pier Giorgio's love and faithful example had come to pay homage to this luminous model of Christian living.. Pier Giorgio's mortal remains were found incorrupt in 1981 and were transferred from the family tomb in the cemetery of Pollone to the Cathedral of Turin.. friend's email address:.. your email address:..

  • Title: The Life
    Descriptive info: In the vibrant life of the Catholic Church, there are many ways toward holiness.. Throughout the two millennia since Christ, the Holy Spirit has raised up a multiplicity of different spiritualities to aid laity, religious, and priests in sanctity.. Some of the faithful in our own age are called to mature the manner in which they live their faith by joining any of the wonderful new lay movements that have been founded in the 20th and 21st centuries.. But the laity who are called to a vocation in the Dominican Order inherit a centuries-old tradition that has remained remarkably intact since 1285, when the Fraternities of St.. Dominic was formalized.. In the spiritual life, St.. Dominic stripped away all superfluity and focused on the basics.. Everything that he incorporated into his zealous plan of formation for his brethren has a purpose and is meant to be lived in a balanced way.. Many find Dominican life appealing because of this very emphasis on spiritual balance.. A Dominican's day revolves prayerfully around Christ: Christ truly present in the Eucharist at Mass, Christ present in the Word both at Mass and in the Liturgy of the Hours, and Christ present in the rosary.. Daily Mass, the Liturgy of the Hours, and the rosary are the staples of the Dominican journey of faith.. Prayerfully engaging in these activities sanctifies each moment of every day and prepares the Dominican for the work and evangelization to which he is called in the world.. St.. Dominic himself animated this balance in his own life: he always prayed first-and kept communion with God throughout his day-and then went out to his work in the world.. Dominican spirituality gives special attention to penance.. One should note that Munio de Zamora, the Dominican Master General who in 1285 laid out the rule of life for the laity interested in living the Dominican charism, initially named the Third Order the  ...   and do-that support their desire for authentic Christian witness.. With their balanced view toward material goods, Dominicans use and respect the gifts of this earth but try not to allow material things to distract them from oneness with Christ.. A healthy spirit of detachment from material goods is the key to balance in this area of a tertiary's life.. In a world full of abundant choices, the lay Dominican focuses on making a constant, daily decision for Christ and His program of life.. The hallmark of Dominican spirituality is preaching, a point that is made obvious to us in the fact that St.. Dominic founded The Order of Preachers (O.. ).. Dominic oriented everything he did toward authentically imitating Christ.. He knew in his own age, which was wrought with heresy, that only a well-educated person who lives humbly, charitably, and uprightly could best transmit the life of Christ to the world.. Therefore, his placement of prayer first in his life, his poverty and austerity, his insistence on study and thorough education, his emphasis on community life and charity all have a purpose: everything that a Dominican does must prepare his soul for preaching well the truth of Christ to the world.. It is not just the world that benefits from a well-formed Dominican's spirituality.. Every element that St.. Dominic incorporated into the founding of his Order personally benefits the souls of its members by refining and bettering them.. Prayer purifies the soul and enables a person to know and to see God.. Study strengthens and guides the soul in truth.. Living in community humbles the soul and teaches charity and compassion to the members of the community.. Practicing apostolic work in the world challenges and fulfills the soul.. To live the Dominican charism fully is to strike a balance-something that requires constant but satisfying effort-between all of these essential components of Dominican spirituality.. The Four Pillars of Dominican Life..

  • Title: FAQ
    Descriptive info: Question: Why do the Fraternities of Saint Dominic exist?.. Answer:.. The Dominican Fraternities exists because it is a gift from God for His Church through the Dominican Order.. It affords certain people, who have this vocation, lay and clergy alike, to grow in holiness through a life of prayer, community, study, and the apostolate.. The Dominican Fraternities certainly do not need to exist, just as the Dominican Order itself doesn't.. As one tertiary said to me not long ago, I see my vocation as a Dominican tertiary as part of my eternal salvation.. Could there be a better answer for why the Fraternities of Saint Dominic exist?.. Fr.. James M.. Sullivan, OP.. Question: How is a Lay Dominican any more a part of the Dominican Order than any one else who attends a church staffed by Dominican friars, and who study Dominican spirituality?.. Dominic are part of the Dominican Order because in receiving a person into the Novitiate the Dominican Order makes them a member of the Order.. From the beginning of the Order of Preachers, there have always be lay people who associated themselves with the Friars.. Some were called to a great involvement in the living out of Dominican spirituality and these were received into our Fraternities of St.. Dominic, whose first Rule was approved in 1285 by the Master of the Order.. The tertiary make a Profession to the Master of the Order himself at the end of that first year.. This Profession is one of a promise to live according to the Rule of the Fraternities of Saint Dominic.. That is certainly a much greater reality than those who happen to attend a Dominican parish or school.. Question: How long will it take before I am officially a member of the Dominican Third Order?.. The Rite of Reception into the Novitiate of the Fraternities of Saint Dominic officially names one Dominican.. The Rite of Final or Perpetual Profession officially seals one, for life, in the Order.. The initial stages of formation take about five years and include mandated prayerful evaluation before each of the three ceremonial advancements (Novitiate, First Profession, Final Profession).. Only serious circumstances will dispense or expel a member after perpetual (life) profession.. The heart, or one s desire, certainly plays its own part in the reality of being a Dominican and many candidates experience a sense of belonging as soon as they have been accepted into the postulancy (usually lasting six months).. Intent alone though is not sufficient but intent with action, such as the Reception into the Novitiate is the qualifier.. A candidate, accepted for and actively pursuing a Dominican tertiary vocation, may request perpetual profession, if desired, under circumstance of terminal illness or serious accident, even if the time of First Profession has not been fulfilled.. Each case requires evaluation based on the individual s preparedness for this final commitment to a Dominican life.. This special request does not apply to less serious infirmity nor is it a ceremony to be imposed upon one who does not desire it.. Mrs.. Margaret Evans, O.. Our Lady of Prouille Chapter.. Elkins Park, Pennsylvania.. Question: Is this a lifetime commitment?.. Final profession in the Fraternities of Saint Dominic is a lifelong commitment, but it is made only after five years of preparation and discernment.. Final Profession confirms the individual s vocation in the Order of Preachers.. The Rule of the Fraternities of Saint Dominic (1987) states that one may advance to Final Profession when: A.. The period of temporary profession, at least three years, has preceded the request, B.. The On-Going Formation materials have been part of the lessons for advancement, C.. An evaluation and approval on the part of the Formation Council is given, D.. The candidate has reached his/her twenty-first birthday, and E.. The Chapter Council, after meeting and discussing the candidate s qualifications for advancement, gives consent.. Members make Final Profession profession to the Master of the Order, at present, Fr.. Carlos Aspiroz Costa, O.. , and as such accept the serious canonical obligations of being a Dominican tertiary.. During the Rite of Final or Perpetual Profession the candidate promises to live according to the Rule of the Fraternities of Saint Dominic for my whole life.. Anna Donnelly, O.. Our Lady of the Assumption Chapter, New York City, New York.. Question: How much time and effort will pursuing this vocation demand from me?.. In one sense becoming a Dominican will take a lifetime.. It is a way of life that deepens and grows as long as you live.. You do not initiate your own vocation.. You are called to a vocation, and so if you are considering Dominican life you need to be drawn to prayer, study, and evangelization.. How much time and effort you spend on these pursuits as a Dominican will depend on how God chooses to use you and your talents.. Another aspect of this question would be, how much time and effort is demanded between the initial contact with a Chapter and becoming a member of the Dominican Order? Since one becomes a Dominican as a member of a community it is necessary to attend monthly Chapter meetings long enough to know that particular community.. After several months or longer a candidate applies in writing to begin a Postulancy program.. This is a series of six monthly teachings, usually given on the same day as the Chapter meeting.. On completing the Postulancy program the candidate is formally received into the Dominican Order.. At that point you are a Dominican.. There is a further year of study required to complete the Novitiate and become Temporarily Professed.. This is followed by three years of living as a Dominican before Final or Lifetime Profession.. Mary Jane Sweet, O.. St Thomas Aquinas Chapter.. Providence, RI.. Question: How does this vocation fit with my married life?.. The vocation of the Dominican Fraternities fits in and benefits married life.. The primary purpose of being a member of the Fraternities of St.. Dominic is to increase one s holiness and assist in helping them reach Heaven.. This goal benefits everyone with whom the member comes in contact.. When first interviewed, prior to becoming a novice in the Dominican Fraternities, the Friar that interviewed me emphasized that the duties of the vocation were not to interfere with my responsibilities as husband, father, and grandfather.. He emphasized that my vocation to marriage came first.. Having become finally professed in the order, this instruction is even clearer now than it was at the time.. Having spent a number of years studying our Faith, philosophy and theology, and both Dominican and other Saints, it has been possible to learn and appreciate the importance of living one s life according to the expectations and instruction of our Lord.. While I fail to accomplish  ...   of study and faithful participation in Dominican life and Chapter community life.. Therefore, it would be very impractical (due to lack of time) to be truly active in more than one Third Order.. The Code of Canon Law (1983) does not limit the number of Third Orders as they are still defined as Associations , however, what is implied is that formation is required in the particular religious institute's spirituality and charism before one can be admitted to that Association.. What is implied is that that Association (in our case the Fraternities of Saint Dominic) has an administrative body and spiritual or religious promoter that may not recommend admission if that body believes that the Candidate would not be able to live faithfully in more than one charism.. The above answer is based on what is given to us in the Code of Canon Law, Book II, Part I, Title V Associations of the Christian Faithful.. The applicable canons are:.. Can.. 298 1.. In the Church there are associations distinct from institutes of consecrated life and societies of apostolic life; in these associations the Christian faithful, whether clerics, lay persons, or clerics and lay persons together, strive in a common endeavor to foster a more perfect life, to promote public worship or Christian doctrine, or to exercise other works of the apostolate such as initiatives of evangelization, works of piety or charity, and those which animate the temporal order with a Christian spirit.. 303 Associations whose members share in the spirit of some religious institute while in secular life, lead an apostolic life, and strive for Christian perfection under the higher direction of the same institute are called third orders or some other appropriate name.. 306 In order for a person to possess the rights and privileges of an association and the indulgences and other spiritual favors granted to the same association, it is necessary and sufficient that the person has been validly received into it and has not been legitimately dismissed from it according to the prescripts of law and the proper statutes of the association.. 307 1.. The reception of members is to be done according to the norm of law and the statutes of each association.. 2.. The same person can be enrolled in several associations.. 3.. Members of religious institutes can join associations according to the norm of their proper law with the consent of their superior.. Kas Santos, Jr.. , O.. Columbus, Ohio.. Question: Is this group some kind of cult?.. Answer:.. No, the Fraternities of St.. Dominic is not a cult.. It s an association of faithful Catholics that has been officially recognized at the highest levels of the Church since 1285.. In fact, it s a good example of the things a cult shouldn t do.. A cult is secretive.. The only secret in the Dominican Fraternities is the secret ballot, and democratic elections at the chapter, regional, and provincial level are not a good way for an international cult to maintain control of its message.. A cult controls the minds of its adherents.. Dominic asks every member to study on their own every day.. That s an effective way for a group to arrive at a more complex understanding of the truth than any one individual would achieve, but it works against cultic groupthink so much that there s a well-known saying: If you ve met one Dominican, you ve met one Dominican.. A cult controls the money of its adherents.. Dues for members are on the order of several dollars a month, and if dues are a hardship for a member, they will be waived.. A cult controls the lives of its adherents.. While joining the Order does entail a serious time commitment for prayer, study, attending chapter meetings, and contributing to the chapter apostolate, Dominican Fraternity members remain in the world, with their own homes, jobs, families, and friends.. A cult has a charismatic founder whose every whim is treated as a divine command.. Dominic certainly was charismatic, but his own brother friars rejected several of his plans during his lifetime.. And now that he s in heaven, he asks only that his spiritual children follow the will of God in their lives.. Thomas Kreitzberg, O.. Bishop Fenwick Chapter.. Silver Spring, Maryland.. Question: Can anyone wear the small Dominican (Third Order) scapular?.. The Brown Scapular has traditionally been the laity's scapular for millions of Catholics for hundreds of years, and will continue to be so for every Catholic in the future.. This beautiful scapular was promulgated for everyone by The Blessed Virgin Mary under the title of Our Lady of Mt.. Carmel.. The standard size Dominican Scapular worn by the religious of the Order was also designed by Our Lady, and given to Blessed Reginald of Orleans for him to pass on to St.. The small scapular for the Fraternities of St.. Dominic reflects the larger scapular and is normally worn by its members.. Membership in the Fraternities of St.. Dominic is comprised of lay people, diocesan priests and deacons, all of whom have professed to Our Lord, and before the Blessed Mother and St.. Dominic, to live a Gospel life in the footsteps of their patron, St.. The small Dominican scapular is normally blessed only by a Dominican priest who has the faculty of giving a Dominican blessing.. If an individual who is not acquainted with the Fraternies of St.. Dominic, wished to wear the small white scapular, they should first consider becoming a member of the lay branch of the Order.. But if anyone should by chance have a blessed Dominican scapular, perhaps for example belonging to their deceased spouse, and wish to wear it, by all means they should, especially to remind them of their loved one.. Our Lord is very pleased with everyone who expresses their love for Him, His Blessed Mother, and any of the saints in Heaven, St.. Dominic included.. To those who may ask about Our Lady's promise to quickly release from Purgatory those who faithfully wore the Brown Scapular during their life, the author of this question's response offers this story.. About 20 years ago as a newly professed Lay Dominican, the author asked his friend, a Dominican friar now of blessed memory, the question of whether he should also wear the Blown Scapular.. Implied in the question --- Our Lady's instant attention and possibly greater love.. The Dominican priest asked, Why? explaining that his own faith was solidly in Christ's salvation, and his devotion to Mary as the Mother of God gave him complete comfort and confidence that he would be with the blesseds in heaven when the time came.. From that day on the author adopted his priest- friend's attitude in living a Dominican life.. Raymond Hutter, O.. Our Lady of Peace Chapter.. Cincinnati, Ohio..
