The Jesuit Post Takes Over Dominicana

This article is from our special April 1st edition of Dominicana Blog. Read “Jesuitica and The Dominican Post” for more details.

Editor’s note: Following a lengthy and ancient tradition of taking Jesuits prisoner, the Friars Preachers from Dominicana Blog have seized The Jesuit Post until further notice. We’ve begun negotiations, but seriously, have you ever tried to argue with a Dominican?  Point, sub-point, sub-sub-point. As the philosopher said, “This could take a long time!” We’re pretty sure we’ll eventually get TJP back (we think we finally have some serious pull in Rome). But until then, turnabout is fair play, so we hacked our way into Dominicana (hint: “angelicdoctor” is a really obvious password). In the meantime, and if the friars haven’t pulled them down for theological censorship, here’s a top ten list of our best posts.  — Eric Sundrup, SJ, Editor-in-Chief of The Jesuit Post

A Familiar Voice My grandfather passed away suddenly when I was only five years old. Knowing my parents, I must have seen a lot of him as an infant, but we had been living in Germany for three years when the tragic news arrived. The distance meant that he and my grandmother had only been able to visit once, although there were regular phone calls. If I try, I can remember a few things about him but what I can recall is so intertwined with pictures and family stor...
Truth in the Refectory I recently listened to a public radio segment on CERN, the scientific research facility in Switzerland. I was struck by what the reporter referred to as, “the heart of CERN.” One might think it’s the laboratory or the complex scientific instruments used there. Turns out it’s the cafeteria. The European Nuclear Research Center, also known as CERN, is home to the Large Hadron Collider. It’s a particle accelerator—a gigantic machine 600 feet deep...
Mortifications for the Faint of Heart Today we are celebrating the sainthood of Rose of Lima. St. Rose is a fellow Dominican, who died at the age of 31 in the year 1617. She also has the mark of being the first saint canonized from the "New World" or the Americas. St. Rose is most well known for the penances she inflicted upon herself. These included not eating meat or fruit for most of her life, sleeping on a bed strewn with rocks and broken glass when she was not depriving herself ...
