Fostering Young Vocations (Part 6)

Courtesy of the Province of the Holy Name of Jesus, the Dominican province of the western United States, with our thanks. (See their Facebook page here.)Note that the fellow on the left has a dog with a torch, one of the symbols of the Order’s founder. When she was pregnant, St Dominic’s mother, Bl. Joan of Aza, had a dream of a dog running with a torch in its mouth, the symbol of how her son’s preaching would spread like fire through the world; this also helped give rise to the famous pun “Domini canes – the hounds of the Lord.”
