That being said, we are delighted (and thrilled) to add another medal of our Holy Father, St. Dominic, to our on-line gift shop's selection of "Dominicana." Please click here to order this lovely medal today!
For a good Dominican it is both frustrating and saddening that St. Dominic has not captured the popular imagination. Case in point: try finding a statue of St. Dominic. They are so rare that some devotees have taken to such desperate measures as "whitewashing" statues of St. Francis of Assisi. On the other hand, the Light of the Church's "obscurity" may actually be a good thing. Just think of St. Francis being made into an animal rights' activist or St. Joseph's reputation as a high-powered (underground) real estate agent!
