Godzdogz blog


Sorry I am rather late in the day with this one (launched on the 1st Sunday of Advent), but I must draw your attention to Godzdogz, the blog of the English Dominican Studentate. I understand that Fra Lawrence Lew, formerly of Contemplata Aliis Tradere, may be one of the regular contributors.

The name of the blog refers to a pun on the word "Dominican" which could be stretched to "Domini canes" (="God's dogs"):
This was itself based on a dream which St Dominic's mother, Blessed Juana de Aza, had in 1170 when she was pregnant: she saw a black and white dog with a torch in its mouth setting the world ablaze. This was interpreted to refer to St Dominic and his spiritual children, the Dominican Order - in their black and white habits - whose preaching brings the light of Gospel truth to shine upon and inflame the world with divine love.
