What can an 800-year-old spiritual tradition teach you today?

Since its founding in 1216, the Dominican Order has indelibly influenced Catholic spirituality. The evangelical spirit of St. Dominic of Caleruega has inspired countless preachers, theologians, artists, philosophers, missionaries, mystics, clerics, and laity down to the present day.

In The Dominican Spiritual Tradition, you will reignite your own life of faith with the power of this school of spirituality. Through 6 lectures, you will reflect upon Dominican spirituality in light of its fascinating, 800-year history. Under the guidance of Fr.

Praise for Donald Goergen 
“The finest professor with whom I have had the privilege to study, Don’s style is at once captivating and endearing.” – Fr. Raymond-Marie Bryce, O.P., Associate Pastor, Indiana University
 Fr. Goergen is a contemplative person, very much in tune with contemporary spirituality. He has carried many administrative responsibilities with steady competence. He possesses the Midwestern virtues of hard work and sober judgment, along with a ready humor.” – Benedict T. Viviano, O.P., biblical scholar
“Few have Fr. Don Goergen’s understanding of the elusive depths of Dominican spirituality. His living of our Dominican life shines through his body of published work on the Holy Spirit as well as his down to earth recorded lectures and retreats on Chardin and our own Eckhart.” – Mr. Joseph J. Komadina, O.P.
“Father Don Goergen, O.P., is a master of the spiritual life. He has not only studied Christian spirituality for many years but has put into practice in his adult life all of those key elements which enable one to grow in holiness…. Let Don show you with the way with his wisdom and insights.” – Father Harry Byrne, O.P., Professor Emeritus, Aquinas Institute of Theology
“Studying Christology with Donald Goergen, OP almost two decades ago forever changed my understanding of Jesus of Nazareth, and continues to shape my prayer and preaching to this day.  I am thrilled that Don’s research and insight will now be available to a wider audience.”
– Ann M. Garrido, Associate Professor of Homiletics, Aquinas Institute of Theology
“Don Goergen has spent his life meditating on the meaning of Jesus and his mission… His work, whether spoken or written, is always holistic: intellectually satisfying, strengthening the heart, socially and pastorally sensitive.” – Vivian Boland OP, socius to the Master of the Order of Preachers
