Dominican Saints

Body: 

Theologian, missionary, mystic, reformer... the vocation of the Preachers can blossom in so many ways in it's double fidelity to the Word of God which proposes Salvation and to the world to which this Salvation is proposed! Apparently there are no bonds between these characters who lived at times, in contexts and with concerns so different from one another. This bond however exists... It is the bond of a common vocation of preachers of the Gospel of Christ, carried out variously according to the places, the times and gifts' of the brothers and the sisters, and lived in a similar balance between permanent elements (proclamation of the Gospel, prayer, study, conventual life...).

 
"...it is characteristic of the Order to renew itself courageously and to adjust itself to these circumstances by discerning and testing what is good and useful in mankind's aspirations and by introducing the results into the unchangeable harmony of the fundamental elements of its life". (Fundamental Constitution No. 8)
