prayer to st dominic
Wonderful Saintly Founder of the eloquent Order of Preachers and
friend of St. Francis of Assisi, you were a fiery defender of
the Faith and a fighter against the darkness of heresy. You resembled
a great star that shone close to the world and pointed to the
Light which was Christ.
Help astronomers to study the stars and admire their wonderful
proclaiming: "Give glory to God in the highest!" Amen.
prayer to saint dominic
O Holy Priest of God and glorious Patriarch, St. Dominic, thou
who wast the friend, the well-beloved son and confidant of the
Queen of Heaven, and didst work so many miracles by the power
of the Holy Rosary, have regard for my intercessions. On earth
you opened your heart to the miseries of your fellow man, and
your hands were strong to help them; now in heaven your charity
has not grown less nor has your power waned.
Pray for me to the Mother of the Rosary and to her divine Son,
for I have great confidence that through your assistance I shall
obtain the favor I so much desire: (mention your intentions).

Through Jesus Christ's Precious, Pure and Holy name I pray. -
A NOVENA TO ST. DOMINIC
O renowned champion of the faith of Christ,
most holy saint Dominic, who didst renounce the honour and dignity
of an earthly principality to embrace the poor,
laborious, and mortified life
which should distinguish a disciple of Him Who has said:
"If any man will come after Me,
let him take up his cross and follow Me."
O burning torch,
who being thyself consumed with the fire of divine love,
didst incessantly labour
to enkindle that sacred flame in the hearts of others,
look down upon me from that throne of glory
where thou enjoyest the reward of all thy labours,
and obtain that some sparks of that blessed fire
may be lighted in my soul,
to animate and encourage me under any crosses or trials
with which it shall please the divine goodness to visit me.
Thou, O great Saint,
regardest as nothing all the afflictions thou didst endure,
and all the toils thou didst undergo for the promotion of God's
obtain, I beseech Thee, that the same
ardent love which strengthened thee,
may make sweet to me labours, humiliations, disgraces,
or whatever other mortifications
I may have to suffer for the Name of Jesus.
May I ever bear in mind that nothing can happen to me
but by the particular dispensation of a God
Who is infinitely wise,
and therefore knows what is best for my welfare; infinitely powerful,
and consequently able to effect it;
and above all,
infinitely merciful and loving,
Who has laid down His life for my redemption,
and continues daily to give new proofs of His love and bounty.
O tender Father of the poor who,
when all other resources were exhausted,
didst offer thyself for their relief,
obtain for me that true spirit of compassion for the suffering
members of Jesus Christ,
which shone forth so conspicuously in thy holy life.
May I, by charity to those whom Jesus so dearly loves,
lay up for myself treasures in heaven,
where thou now enjoyest that which the eye hath not seen,
nor the ear heard,
nor the heart of man conceived,
but which God has prepared for those who love Him,
and who prove themselves His Disciples
by the observance of His Divine precept - love one another.
I praise and thank God for the high degree of sanctity
to which He had raised thee,
and the special privileges
by which He has distinguished thee.
I conjure thee,
by that gratitude with which thou shalt for all eternity
be penetrated for thy Divine Benefactor,
implore for me the grace to root out of my heart
whatever is not agreeable in His sight, especially that evil habit
by which I most frequently offend Him.
Obtain likewise the favours I request in this Novena,
through thy powerful intercession.
(Here specify your intentions)
O glorious Mother of God,
Queen of the most sacred Rosary,
thou who didst love Dominic with the affection of a mother,
and were most tenderly loved and honoured by him,
look upon me, for his sake, with an eye of pity,
deign to join with him in presenting these petitions
to thy most Blessed Jesus.
I sincerely desire from this moment
to love Him with all my heart,
and serve Him with all my strength,
and now place myself under thy powerful protection,
as a sure means of obtaining all the graces necessary
to serve Him faithfully here,
that I may eternally rejoice with Him hereafter. Amen.
Anglican Chaplet Prayer of St. Dominic
(based on Lectionary Lessons)
Cross: 'Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.'
But how are they to call on one in whom they have not believed?
And how are they to believe in one of whom they have never heard?
And how are they to hear without someone to proclaim him? And
how are they to proclaim him unless they are sent? As it is written,
'How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!' But
not all have obeyed the good news; for Isaiah says, 'Lord, who
has believed our message?' So faith comes from what is heard,
and what is heard comes through the word of Christ. -- Romans
Invitatory Bead: O God of the prophets, who opened the eyes of
your servant Dominic to perceive a famine of hearing the word
of the Lord, and moved him, and those he drew about him, to satisfy
that hunger with sound preaching and fervent devotion: Make your
Church, dear Lord, in this and every age, attentive to the hungers
of the world, and quick to respond in love to those who are perishing;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and
the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Cruciform Bead: O sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD,
all the earth. -- Psalm 96:1 Week Beads: Psalm 96:2-7, 9
1st: Sing to the LORD, bless his name; tell of his salvation from
day to day.
2nd: Declare his glory among the nations, his marvellous works
among all the peoples.
3rd: For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; he is to
be revered above all gods.
4th: For all the gods of the peoples are idols, but the LORD made
5th: Honour and majesty are before him; strength and beauty are
in his sanctuary.
6th: Ascribe to the LORD, O families of the peoples, ascribe to
the LORD glory and strength.
7th: Worship the LORD in holy splendour; tremble before him, all
Exit Cross: Then Jesus answered them, 'My teaching is not mine
but his who sent me. Anyone who resolves to do the will of God
will know whether the teaching is from God or whether I am speaking
on my own. Those who speak on their own seek their own glory;
but the one who seeks the glory of him who sent him is true, and
there is nothing false in him. -- John 7:16-18
