Here they are, in all their glory, along with the sixteen brothers who started out last year:
|from Order of Preachers Vocations|
Don't ask me to name them all--I can't name more than two of them for sure, but they are all in my prayers everyday.
When last year's class received the Holy Habit, I wrote all their names down on pieces of paper and drew one to pray for in particular, as a sort of representative of the group for me. At that time, the Holy Spirit matched me with Brother Thomas Davenport (I believe he's the seventh from the left in the back row).
Naturally, this year, I went through the 'lottery' again and was assigned to Christopher (in the back row, 8th from the right) He probably has a new name already but I don't know it yet.
Anyway, just looking at this picture makes me so happy! I have never met a single one of these men, but I hope to someday.
I love my Dominican family!
God bless my Dominican family!
