The Pride of St. Dominic: Muscular Renewal

http://www.catholicculture.org/commentar...cfm?id=585

Uplifting article on the return to greatness of the Dominican Friars.  We need this Thomistic revival greatly in the Church.  We need bold friars who are willing to speak truth to power, both in the secular world, but also inside the Church.  I pray to God that this continues, and that they do exactly that.

Yes there is a lot of positive things going on in the Dominican Order these days. Also the Dominican Rite of Mass has made it's return in a small way in places like Anchorage, Portland, Oregon and the Western province in Oakland. Lets hope this grows!

Deus Gratias for the Dominican Order. I had given the thought of joining their order before.

Also not to derail the thread but I have a question. If you become a priest can you still take part of certain lay group?

For example I am discerning the priesthood. Probably the Norbertines, FSSP, or Institute of Christ the King.

I however belong to a group called Hermandad de San Dimas (Brotherhood of Saint Dismas) I might also going to join the Third Order of Saint Dominic.

When I become a priest can I still contribute or even go to the meetings of those groups?

As a secular (diocesan) priest you could join the Dominican Laity for sure.  In the other situations, no you cannot.  In fact, depending on the lay organization you currently belong to, you might not be able to join due to that either.  When you become a Lay Dominican, you are a true member of the Order of Preachers, every bit as much as the Master of the Order himself.  As such, it is a very serious commitment with a long formation process.

Anyone else getting a warning pop up stating catholic culture poses a malware threat ? 

My antivirus won't even let me right click the link. It not only displays the pop up warning, but kicks off FE as well.

Yeah, good stuff.

As far as I know, the OP's never did goo too extreme after VII. They were always rather conservative or at least moderate. As opposed to the Redemptorists, Jesuits, some Benedictine monasteries, Passionists who all went batsh** crazy or the Oratorians and Norbertines who stayed pretty conservative and traditional.

Good news.

I have no problems at all with it and visit it regularly.  My antivirus doesn't make a peep.

They certainly had their problems, some of them ongoing and quite extreme.  There is a reason that former Master of the Order Tim Radcliffe was often referred to as "Timmy Radical" by traditional Catholics.  However, you are correct in that they had not become as bad as some other Orders, or as widespread.  Having a strong central authority and having orthodoxy to the Faith being such a strong part of the charism of the group helped to minimize that to some extent. 

Today, these problems continue, but they are getting better, and probably faster than other communities.  The Southern province of friars, unfortunately, still suffers more than the others I believe.  I have been told by a friar that there is tension between the younger friars and some of the older ones, which I would guess is due to these types of issues.  To my understanding, the contemplative nuns didn't have as much of a problem, or if they did, not many knew about it due to their isolation. 

And of course, many of the apostolic sisters lost it big time.  It is worth mentioning however that that the apostolic sisters are tied to the order in quite a different way from the friars, nuns, and laity; all of which were founded by Dominic himself.  The active sisters came along later and therefore, are not as much under the authority of the Master as the other three parts of the family.

A Dominican Friar in the Southern Province adds some of his own commentary on the article.
