Messengers!?

This title is provoking and it puts forth a question, a call, which takes into account the doubts; it is a cry hoping to be heard. We chose it because we think it summarizes well our situation as Dominican Laity today. We are members of the “Order of Preachers”, called to witness. But how do we hear the Word of God we ought to convey to others, and how do we bring others to understand that it makes us live? To proclaim the Gospel or to not proclaim it, that is the question. And we may condense this in an English catchphrase: “To preach or not to preach, that is the question”.

Messengers?

Introduction

As a Glasgow Lay Dominican, I take a vow to the Order every three years. The last time was in St Dominic’s cell in Santa Sabina in front of the Master, Timothy Radcliffe, apart from anything else, an old friend. For some reason, I was bit nervous and said solemnly: I renew my vow for three days! Timothy bent down and said: That’s not much of a commitment, Duncan.
