Dominicans Swedish Laundry Dancing…

November 10, 2008

In my home, laundry dancing generally consists of running up and down the steps to the basement in my bathrobe or swimtrunks or an old pair of scrubs… (alas, whatever is actually clean on the great day of laundering, I will be found to be wearing it!)

From Moniales, OP  – the venerable blog of NJ-based Dominicans we get these delightful photos.  Observe the good sisters are dancing where sisters should be dancing, in the refectory, not on the altar.  (LCWR, take note!)

Keep the good sisters in your prayers, they are praying for you daily.

…Fr. John Frederick Hinnebusch was the youngest in a family of ten children from Pittsburgh, seven of whom became Dominicans. Fr. Paul Hinnebusch was a preacher, biblicist, and spiritual writer and Fr. William Hinnebusch was a Dominican historian. A third brother, Fr. Albert Louis Hinnebusch, also a Dominican, was very active in the Holy Name Society in the South. The three Dominican sisters, Sr. Claire, Sr. Regina Ann, and Sr. Dorothy, were members of the St. Mary of the Springs congregation.

The Difference Between Dominicans and Jesuits

August 27, 2008

Two men considering a religious vocation were having a conversation. “What is similar about the Jesuit and Dominican Orders? ” the one asked.

The second replied, “Well, they were both founded by Spaniards — St. Dominic for the Dominicans, and St. Ignatius of Loyola for the Jesuits. They were also both founded to combat heresy — the Dominicans to fight the Albigensians, and the Jesuits to fight the Protestants.”

“What is different about the Jesuit and Dominican Orders?”

“Met any Albigensians lately?”
