About us

theWord is a service of the Order of Preachers, offering audible daily reflections on the Christian scriptures. Our preachers are drawn from the entire worldwide Dominican family–priests, brothers, sisters and lay people.

Our reflections can also be Podcasted, and we send them out on a daily listserve. See the sidebar or the bottom of the page for details.

    I want to thank Jim Donleavy for his message, 2nd October. I have been too sophisticated to think of guardian angels, that seemed childish, but the kindness of God and the link with infinity are not to be taken lightly or shunned. That makes sense to me in a tough world!

    The title of my homily for August 1 is God’s Net, not God’t net.

    Thank you for taking care of this.

    My question is this:
    How much of your conversion and missionary efforts are directed to exclusively African American urban inmates, communities and families.
    There does not seem to be a strong Catholic effort to reach out to suffering African America.

    I use the Word every day as part of my prayer and thank you to all the preachers. You each have something special to give me .
    A plea- the spelling is Sydney not Sidney; the latter is often used as a Christian name!

    I need the address of Priory of St. Albert the Great in Irving Texas . I am trying to reach Fr. Brian Pierce O.P. to write him or call concerning Meister Eckhart. I am a friend of Sister Pascaline and devotee of the former ashram in Sand Springs. I am a Benedictine Oblate and interested in developing the Beguine movement in the midwest area starting in Michigan. Thanks . Namaste.

    66. The Homily should ordinarily be given by the priest celebrant himself. He may entrust it to a concelebrating priest or occasionally, according to circumstances, to the deacon, but never to a lay person. I was told that Dominican Nuns or Sisters being of the Order of Preachers were able to preach the Homily after the Gospel. Is this true? Are Sisters or Nuns able to give the Homily after the priest reads the Gospel.

    I would like to be in touch with Sister Connie Schoen……we were friends when we attended Cooley Law School in the 70’s, and have lost touch over the years. I see her posts come from Louisville KY and we travel through there when we drive from our home in FL to Michigan in the summer.

    Thank you for this sight,I use it each. Morning. Since changing the set up, here on Australia we are unable to get the reflection until the following day. It is because of the time difference. Is there any chance of fixing this problem for us. Many thanks, Ann Keys

    We have entered the “age to come” foretold by Jesus in Mark 10:30. (the Harmonious Gospel of Saint Mark, chapter 10, verse 30, the Glorious Manifestation of Our King, Lord, and Savior Jesus Christ)
