charismst dominicNovena to St. Dominic

This novena is prayed by our community July 30-August 7 as we approach the feast of St. Dominic on August 8. We invite you to pray with us, asking the intercession of St. Dominic on behalf of the needs of the world and for your own personal intentions.

The following hymn is sung each day after the recitation of the novena.

Hymn
Thou who hero-like has striven
For the cause of God and heaven,
St. Dominic, whose life was given
Sinners to recall.
Saint of high and dauntless spirit,
By thy vast unmeasured merit,
By thy name which we inherit
Hear us when we call.

Flower of chastity the fairest
Of her lily buds thou bearest,
Snow white as the robe thou wearest,
Gift of hands divine.
With thy brow of starry splendor
With thine eyes so mild and tender
Mary’s client, Truth’s defender,
To our prayers incline.
