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

Fulton Sheen and the Playfulness of the Gospel This post is the second part of a series on Archbishop Fulton Sheen.   St. Philip Neri once remarked to a Dominican friar, “All that I have of good I owe to your fathers of San Marco.” Could the same be said of Fulton Sheen? In his autobiography, Sheen speaks movingly (and amusingly) about his friendship with a certain Fr. Smith: For many years our dean in the School of Philosophy was Father Ignatius Smith, a Dominican, who was not...
In Elmira, at the Heart of Reality Before I became a Dominican friar I considered becoming a monk. I once related my monastic aspirations to a fellow Catholic who then became upset and objected, “I don’t like the idea of you sitting inside and praying all day while the rest of us have to work.” A similar sentiment pervades the letters of the early friars to their Dominican sisters.

The Economics of Gratitude A couple weeks ago I had to face one of the more difficult aspects of our Dominican life: begging—or, to use the traditional term, "mendicancy." I was sent to our parishes in Somerset, Ohio to give the annual financial appeal at all the masses, asking the good people of St. Joseph's and Holy Trinity to support the student brothers here in Washington, DC. While I have found much joy in our life of poverty and am profoundly grateful to all those wh...
All Dominican Souls In the month of November, the Church calls to mind and prays for the faithful departed. When I was growing up I thought this was silly. Why should I waste my time praying for the dead while the living are in such need of prayer? (more…)
