The Spirit of St. Dominic is the fruit of retreat conferences preached by Fr. Clerissac to his Dominican brethren in England in 1908. In these pages, Fr. Clerissac presents the spirit of St. Dominic and his Order of Preachers, illuminating how this spirit is a living treasure for the Church today as it was at its genesis. As Thomistic Institute Director Fr. Thomas Joseph White, O.P. writes in his Introduction, “a great work of theology has a perennial relevance.” Such indeed is the case with this collection of retreats given by Fr. Clerissac: perennially relevant, theologically beautiful.
“This beautiful book is a “must-read” for all Dominicans, for those who discern a vocation to the Order of Preachers, and for all who wish to encounter the unique apostolic character of the Dominican Order.” ~Dr. Reinhard Hütter, Professor of Christian Theology, Duke University
