The Life of St. Dominic by Fr. Henri Lacordaire OP

Fr. Henri John Baptist Lacordaire OP
The Idaho Lay Dominicans have some great resources on-line. Among them is the Life of St. Dominic by Fr. Henri Lacordaire OP.  It is well worth checking out.  Here also you will find a few other references on this blog for Lacordaire on this blog.
You may be familiar with the famous poem about the Priesthood by Lacordaire:
A Priest
To live in the midst of the world
without wishing its pleasures;
To be a member of each family,
yet belonging to none;
To share all suffering;
to penetrate all secrets;
To heal all wounds;
to go from men to God
and offer Him their prayers;
To return from God to men
to bring pardon and hope;
To have a heart of fire for Charity,
and a heart of bronze for Chastity
To teach and to pardon,
console and bless always.
My God, what a life;
and it is yours,
O priest of Jesus Christ.
—Fr. Henri Lacordaire OP
