A talk given at our most recent vocations weekend by Sr Tamsin Geach o.p.
Intrinsic to the Dominican vocation are the ‘four pillars’ of Study, Prayer, Community life and Preaching or the mission. I shall explore how study fits into Dominican life under the following headings:
1. Models of Study
2. Study and conformity to Christ
3. An intellectual life that is counter-cultural
4. Study as a source of unity
5. Study as asceticism
6. Study as mission
8. Freedom from and freedom for.
