Did you know how the Dominicans got their name?
Maybe we should start some kind of blog quiz

St. Dom's mom had a dream about a dog running with a torch in it's mouth. Or something to that effect.

close but no cigar.

Before St Dominic was born his mum had a dream of a little white dog barking loudly at a big black dog. The lil white doggy was St. Dominic and the black one was the heresies of the time.

Dominican actually comes from 2 words Domini (God) Canes (dog) hence the Dominicans are the Dogs of God.

I love this story so much
