The goal of the Order of Preachers is the salvation of souls – our own souls as well as the souls of others. Over the past eight hundred years, numerous Dominicans, faithful to the way of life established by St. Dominic, have achieved great holiness. The Order can boast of more than seventy canonized saints and two hundred blesseds, including three Popes, two novices and a master Renaissance artist. The following is a selection of these holy men and women in whose footsteps we follow as members of the Order of Preachers.
