Contemplata aliis Tradere

A meagre contribution to the mission and work of the Order of Preachers: my reflections, thoughts, ideas and the occasional rant on matters mainly theological, philosophical and ecclesiastical, drawn primarily from my reading and experience of life and the world. Striving to be always Catholic, firmly Christian and essentially Dominican, flavoured with dashes of Von Balthasar.

Thanks for the "inspired" post! I just began reading LUMEN GENTIUM so this was very timely! My model? CHURCH AS SACRAMENT! Hmmm, I wonder if my teaching the Sacraments to our novitiate sisters a few years ago has anything to do with this! Happy preparations for your entrance!
