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.

A pilgrim and way-farer, a searcher for Truth on the journey of Life... "Wherever the Catholic sun doth shine, There’s always laughter and good red wine. At least I’ve always found it so. Benedicamus Domino!" - Hilaire Belloc

Pilgrimage Hiatus

This blog will be on hiatus for the duration of a Novena as the English Dominican Novitiate is going on a pilgrimage to Spain to visit the Dominican sites and also the places associated with other spiritual masters. We shall be based at our Priory in the beautiful and ancient city of Salamanca. Do keep us in your prayers, as I will remember all my readers at the holy shrines.

During this hiatus, the English church celebrates the Solemnity of St George and we mark the anniversary of Pope Benedict's election; no doubt many of my favourite bloggers will mark those days with due care and consideration, more ably than I could. As for me, Blogging will resume on 26 April, hopefully with some photos from Spain.

Have a blessed and joyful Easter Octave!
