The Book of Wisdom is arguably the most Dominican book of the Bible
In its chapters we see the author contemplating the working of God in the early history of the people of Israel.

Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord
The word of God which we have just heard introduces us to the mystery of today’s feast. The vision that Daniel has in his dream is connected with the judgment in chapter 7, from which we read only some excerpts. There is a judgment upon the kingdoms that were cruelly persecuting the Jews at the time of the prophet because of their faith in the one God.

And Dominic made himself a prayer, groaning and weeping; and, from his sleepless nights, and from his tireless walk, the Father, who always hears the cries of his people, knew how to draw from Dominic words of grace, life and mercy.
