DOMINIC, PREACHER OF GRACE
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,
Filled with compassion and mercy,
Visioning many grace-filled followers,
Men and women of the Word,
Preachers ablaze with God’s dream.
Dominic walked the way,
Reaching out to new frontiers
With steady torch of truth held high,
Steeped in prayer day and night,
Releasing streams of light.
An unexpected future
Lies in wait for those who live
Deeply rooted and formed in the Word,
Watered by God’s abundant grace,
Daily living Dominic’s dream.
Preachers of Grace in our time,
Beaming the blessings
Of our Loving and Faithful God.
