August 8th: Memorial of Saint Dominic, Priest
Gospel text
Lk 9,57-62
As Jesus and his disciples went on their way, a man said to him, «I will follow you wherever you go». Jesus said to him, «Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head».
Gospel's Commentary
Today we celebrate a saint who made a fundamental contribution to the renewal of the Church of his time: St Dominic, the Founder of the Order of Preachers, also known as Dominican Friars. He always spoke with God and of God. He distinguished himself straight away for his interest in the study of Sacred Scripture and for his love of the poor. —Saint Dominic carried out his evangelizing mission with the example of his own poor and austere existence, Gospel preaching and public discussions.
