3 Inspiring Alumni Stories
It All Starts at the DHS
In this new video, DHS alumni reflect, in gratitude, on the invaluable role the DHS has played in their vocations to bring clarity over confusion.
Both nationally and internationally, our alumni bear a charitable and unflinching witness to the Gospel in many different roles: as chaplains, as pastors, as middle school teachers, as professors at seminaries and universities.
And, though love for Christ and His Church directs these men and women into very different roles, this work, vital for the renewal of our society and our Church, all starts at the Dominican House of Studies.
Here, at the DHS, young men and women who are ready to devote their lives to the service of Christ receive the intellectual confidence and unshakable foundation needed to draw our confused and divided world closer to the clarity and charity of Christ.
Clarity over Confusion
Confusion is a consequence of sin. We see its effects plainly. This confusion divides our society. It threatens the minds of professors, politicians, priests, and prelates. And it seeks even to rend the Church apart.rnrnThe antidote for the confusion of sin will always be Christ, Who is Truth Himself.rnrnSince their founding, Dominicans have worked tirelessly to combat confusion in every age and in every arena. Ministering to a society that suffers so greatly from the confusion of relativism and the divisiveness of sin, Dominicans bear steadfast witness to the unchanging reality of Truth, the radical intelligibility of the Gospel, and the unifying power of Christ.

Sin makes us forget. Sin is a “turning away” that makes it easy to forget. And it has a compounding effect, as the only way we can justify our sin to ourselves is through a forgetfulness of God...

"We find ourselves this Lenten week surrounded by a trifecta of celebratory days—this is odd. Shouldn’t we be dour? Shouldn’t we be occupied with doing penance and mourning for our sins? Were not those ashes to set us on a path of dismal gloom until the great Easter Proclamation brings it to a happy end?..."
