Dominican Contemplative Nuns tell how God called them

To commemorate the 800th anniversary of the foundation of the first monastery of Dominican nuns by St Dominic at Prouilhe, France in 1206,聽the Association of the Monasteries of Nuns of the Order of Preachers of the United States of America sponsored the publication of this wonderful account of 23 vocation stories.

To quote from the Preface: 鈥淚ts hope is to aid those聽discerning a call to the monastic life, to recall the聽鈥榝irst love鈥 of those who have chosen it, and to raise聽awareness of Dominican contemplative life.鈥

Fr Dominic Izzo OP, Provincial of St Joseph鈥檚聽Province US comments: 鈥淭hese testimonies are聽not a history of the past rather they give聽confidence to all in the present who have the聽courage to accept God鈥檚 invitation to Himself.聽Indeed God has done great things. This book聽reminds all of us that God is still doing great聽things.鈥
