If it were not Sunday
today would be the feast of St. Dominic,O.P., Priest and Founder. To all the Dominicans out there, including a certain blogger, happy feast day !

St. Dominic's white wool, which no blemish can impair, no stain can dim...

Venerable John Henry Newman, C.O., Sermons Preached on Various Occasions

It would also be the feast of Blessed Joan of Aza, (St. Dominic's mother), Blessed John Felton, Martyr, and Blessed Mary MacKillop, R.S.J., Virgin and Foundress, who may become the first native of Australia to be canonized.
