It is with great joy that I can announce that I am now a tertiary in the Third Order of Penance of St. Dominic. On the Feast of Corpus Christi I was received into the Order, after a year of postulancy, by Fr. Albert, OP who is presently living in Belgium as part of the Steffeshausen Dominicans. He is a Dominican attached to the Society of St. Pius X. You may view a short video on Fr. Albert and the Dominicans by clicking here.
I have taken the name in religion of John, in honor of St. John the Apostle. I pray for the intercession of St. John and St. Dominic and my Confirmation saint, St. Thomas Aquinas, that I may follow well the this rule of life.
The following is the Ceremonial for Reception and Profession in the Third Order of Penance of Saint Dominic according to the Traditional Observation of the Order, as practiced before Vatican II.
