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

Christ in a Cassock Walking through the windy city in a cassock— with his messy hair and unruly beard, Tom Chiarella must have cut a figure like “Father James” in the movie Calvary. This was his own ad hoc sociology experiment to see what wearing different “uniforms” would call out of bystanders, and even himself. Uniquely, the cassock seemed to glue peoples’ eyes to him. Chiarella recounts how it drew people spontaneously to seek help and mercy from him. Without...
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. St. Peter Martyr complained to the prioress of a convent in Milan, “You have gone up onto the mo...
The Patron Saint of Papal Politics Breaking news: there is turmoil in the Church, even amongst her leaders! This headline has been applicable to the earthly portion of the Church ever since Cardinal Iscariot was caught in a murderous conspiracy ring targeting the Head of the Church, or since a feisty Turkish theologian and evangelist called out the Petrine Authority to be consistent in his application of cultural norms, or since a critic of the papacy, Hippolytus (and indeed a...
Something Fresh Contemplari et contemplata aliis tradere - To contemplate and to hand on to others the fruits of contemplation. The motto of the Dominican Order signifies the movements that mark the Dominican life: the Holy Spirit fills the friar's heart in prayer, impels him outward to share those gifts with others, then calls him inward to be filled anew.
