Dominican Spirituality: Principles and Practices


This wonderful and deeply enriching book by Dominican Father William A. Hinnebusch examines Dominican spirituality as a way of living the Christian faith inspired by the life and teachings of Saint Dominic and his followers. Dominican spirituality, Hinnebusch teaches, is characterized by four principles: preaching, prayer, study, and community. Preaching is the primary mission of the Dominicans, who seek to share the Gospel with others through words and deeds. Prayer is the foundation of Dominican life, which includes both personal and liturgical prayer, as well as contemplation and meditation. Study is the means by which Dominicans deepen their knowledge of God, themselves, and the world, and prepare themselves for preaching. Community is the context in which Dominicans live out their vocation, supporting one another in their common mission and fostering fraternal love and unity. Dominican spirituality is a dynamic and joyful way of following Christ in the service of the Church and the world.
