The glorious St Dominic

The Pope dedicated today's public audience to the figure of St Dominic. The whole address is not yet available in English, just the synopsis which you can find here.
The Pope spoke about how Dominic fought the heresy of his time by the tools of humility, poverty, prayer, study, dedication to truth and never to share in the sacred preaching what he did not contemplate before. What wonderful tools for us.
It was said of Dominic that he always spoke to God or about God. God filled Dominic's heart as Dominic never let go of following Jesus with such a passion that 800 years later is still eloquent and alive.
