The Dominic Option

I would suggest that history doesn’t set the Benedict Option or protective style against the Dominican Option or missionary style.  Remember that the upper room had to happen before Pentecost.  The time of pregnancy has to happen in order to birth a healthy child.

These styles are not at odds to each other but in fact organically connected, one birthed from the other.  The Dominicans could never have succeeded without the existence of the earlier Benedict’s, the protection and nurturing of the faith in the difficulties of their times

Let us not be historically myopic but recognize each movement is birthed from the others previous work and so it is likely this cycle must happen again.
