Dominican Brothers Renew Simple Profession
By Ernest Mwape OP – Four Dominican brothers renewed their simple profession during the first vesper of Advent before God and the Emaphetwelweni Dominican community in Pietermaritzburg.
Reflecting with the brothers, prior Br Georges Alahou OP said the best way to live their vocation was to let God tell himself to people through them.
“At the very moment we pronounce the formula of our profession, we use the name of St Dominic to mean that we want to remain faithful to his purpose,” he said.
“We should not forget that we take vows in order to bear witness to the Gospel in the manner of St Dominic whose life we emulate.
Br Alahou added: “He was a compassionate and merciful man, who taught people to seek God with zeal and knowledge.”
