With Him: Listening to the Underside of the World
A meditation on the role of the Dominican in the modern world.
The Dominican Order has a particular vocation: not to stay enclosed in monasteries but to get out on the highways and byways and preach. This book is a meditation or reflection on the role of the Dominican in the modern world. But as Master of the Order of Preachers Bruno Cadore points out at the start of the book, we are all brothers and sisters, and therefore this book is addressed to a wide audience.
Having traveled to visit the houses of the order in every part of the world, Cadore is aware of the suffering and persecution not just of Christians but of human beings. Many members of his own order (like the Bishop of Algiers) have been murdered. His outreach is to the poor, the marginalized and the afflicted. His Dominican vision is in this sense totally consonant with the Papacy of Pope Francis.
