Pilgrimage to the
Lands of Dominic - 1985
By: Barbara Cooper
We visit St. Mary supra Minerva - given to the Order
of Preachers in 1260 or 70. Catherine and Fra Angelico are buried there,
and I am sitting by Catherine's tomb. She was a woman for God; as I'd
like to be. She and Dominic had a "single eye", focused on the Word.
They made their home in the "cell of self knowledge" as Catherine calls
it. In that place of awareness, we come to know ourselves and God, and
are empowered to love.
