Dominic, Preacher of Grace
by Brenda Walsh, OP, Racine, Wisconsin
Dominic dreamed a world
freed from war and violence,
winnowed of greed and falsehood,
mirroring truth and goodness
in every sphere of life.
Dominic preached in Spirit power,
caressed by compassion and mercy ,
visioning many grace-filled followers,
men and women of the Word,
ablaze with Godís dream.
Dominic walked the way,
reaching out to new frontiers
with steady torch of truth held high,.
steeped in prayer night and day,
releasing streams of light.
An unexpected future
lies in wait for those who live
deeply rooted and formed in the Word,
watered by Godís abundant grace,.
daily living Dominicís dream.
Preachers of Grace in our time,
beaming the blessings of our faithful God"
