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

Lacordaire, Dominican Apologist   If the Catholic Church, and the Dominican Order, ever looked dead, it was at the turn of the 19th Century. In the wake of the French Revolution, the Church had been banned in many parts of Western Europe, thousands of Catholics had been martyred for their faith, religious orders had been outlawed, and the Pope had recently died in captivity under Napoleon. Swept up with the ideals of the Enlightenment, the Western world had declared her...
800 Years This year marks the 800th Jubilee of the Dominican Order. But if you're like me, it's hard to imagine exactly what 800 years of preaching looks like. So, I've compiled a list to help visualize it. I grew up in Colorado, a state with a long and venerable history and which entered the United States in 1876—140 years ago. The Order of Preachers is 6 times as old. This is why I sometimes have trouble picturing St. Dominic in the year 1216. What...
The City That Never Sleeps “If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere.” Thus Liza Minelli and Frank Sinatra sing in “New York, New York.” From far and wide, from across the nation and all over the world, throngs of people flock to New York City in search of the American dream. Whether they be aspiring actors or writers, ambitious entrepreneurs, or immigrants looking for a new world of opportunity—my own ancestors settled in the Polish enclave of Greenpoint, Brooklyn—fo...
The Most Difficult Saint to Love? For non-Catholics, Francis is the easiest saint to understand and love, while Dominic is the most difficult, once remarked Chesterton. If the abundance of Francis-emblazoned garden decorations and the world’s new-found devotion to Pope Francis—whose namesake is the beggar friar of Assisi—are a reliable indication, the statement is undoubtedly true. The endearing vagabond stigmatist of Alverna, known for his love of creation and his sympathy for t...
