The Dominicans celebrate this year their 800-year jubilee. After starting in Spain with Dominic de Guzman, the Order developed until it became a worldwide organisation of brethren, nuns, sisters and laypersons. What does it mean being a member of a worldwide order? What does it mean to be a world citizen? That’s the subject of my interview with Leny Beemer. She is a lay Dominican and after being president for 8 years of the Dutch Dominican Lay Fraternity, she went international. Now she is president of the European Council of Lay Dominican Fraternities.
