LIBERA ME, Domine, Iesu Christe, ab omnibus iniquitatis meis et universis malis,
fac me tuis semper inhærere mandatis et a te numquam separari permittas. Amen.

Bl. Reginald of Orleans

Today is the Feast of Bl. Reginald of Orleans, one of the early disciples of S. Dominic.

His particular claim to remembrance is that he joined the Order of Preachers after Our Lady not only appeared to him in a vision and told him to do so, but also showed him a black-and-white habit, and told him that this was what the members of the Order were to wear henceforward . . . as they have done ever since !

This statue of Bl. Reginald from Calaruega in Spain is splendidly photographed by fr Lawrence Lew OP, whose flickr pages are always well worth a visit.
