About this product
- DescriptionThe Church needs a blast of Dominican fresh air. The book points to the quality of that fresh air. It is introduced by Timothy Radcliffe. At a time when the Roman Catholic Church is deep in the mire of corruption and crisis, it is in need of a blast of Dominican fresh air. The Dominican order consists of friars, nuns and a growing number of lay people. All these categories of human being are represented in this book. Also represented in the chapters are intellectuals, artists, social and political revolutionaries and Vatican officials. The influence of members of the Order is widespread and thanks to the recent leadership of Timothy Radcliffe and the continuing rediscovery of the charism of St Dominic, this religious order is ideally placed to help to revive the life of the Catholic Church today. This is a revival which is most sorely needed. St Dominic founded his order in an inn (pub). The motto of the Order is one single word- Veritas/Truth.
