Jesuitica and The Dominican Post


Editor’s Note: On April 1, 2014, Dominicana ventured where no friar has gone before: the pages of The Jesuit Post. Of course, what goes around comes around, and the Jesuits soon began making themselves at home here. Special thanks to Eric Sundrup, SJ, the editor-in-chief of TJP, and all our Jesuit brothers for their generosity and willingness to go along with the scheme. Below, you’ll find links to all of the special April 1st posts at both sites, as well as screenshots of the homepages as they appeared that morning.  —Br. Henry Stephan, O.P., Editor, Dominicana Blog

Religious Life and Death I once heard a priest playfully encouraging someone to think about entering religious life by telling him, “You have got to die!” A good reminder, that—both for those of us who already are consecrated religious and for those who would be: religious life requires a kind of death. In a way, of course, the same is true of every Christian’s spiritual life, starting from the moment the baptismal waters flowed over his forehead—scriptural support for t...
Oldest In Religion When we profess vows in the Dominican Order, the brother who is oldest by date of birth in his class of novices makes his vows first, and then down the line until the youngest by physical age. At this point all of the newly professed brothers enter into a new kind of "age": order of religion. This refers to when someone has made his first vows - so I am one year younger in religion than the class of brothers who made vows the year before me, and ...

The 800th anniversary of the founding of the Order is also a...
Dominicana Takes Over “The Jesuit Post” Editor’s note: We Dominican student brothers truly admire the work of The Jesuit Post. So much so that we decided to lend a fraternal hand to our Jesuit brothers and add our own touch to the place. The Order of Friars Preachers, after all, has a long tradition of providing intellectual and spiritual inspiration to the Society of Jesus.
