    Hagiography of St. Dominique

    Dominique was born in 1302 in Chinon in Anjou. Daughter of pious Aristotelian parents, her aunt was the Mother Superior of the Convent of the Aristotelian Sister of Chinon.
    Influenced by the precepts of Aristotle and Christos throughout her childhood, she decided, at the age of 15 years, to join her aunt at the convent and do monastic chores.

    She plunged into the study of sacred texts and quickly became the most educated of the sisters. The Mother Superior then gave her the burden of the celebration of masses for 25 years, the registrar within the convent, and the task of teaching her companions, tasks for which her theological scholarship was appreciated by her sisters.

    Her knowledge of the Scriptures was such that the parish priest of Chinon often came to see her and study with her.

    Aristotle bore a sincere friendship for these two people that were dedicated to the fulfilment of God's work.

    Quickly, the parishioners of Chinon began to come and seek her advice on how they should lead their lives to follow the path of God.

    When her aunt died in 1335, as expected, she was elected by the sisters to their new Mother Superior.

    But then disaster struck France when the terrible 100 years war began.

    Chinon was invaded and conquered by the English ...

    Anarchy spread, cities were paralyzed by fear.

    However, at Chinon, the reassuring presence of Mother Dominique made the Aristotelian believers gather around her in hope and prayer.

    The priest of Chinon, who was much loved, died in turn.
    And in these times of trouble, away from Rome and the bishop of Angers, who had to flee his diocese, parishioners of Chinon were left withouta priest ...

    The impossible happened. Although it was prohibited in those days for women to hold a parish or celebrate the sacraments, parishioners begged Dominique de Chinon to become their pastor.

    This petition greatly disturbed Dominique, who went into prayer asking God to enlighten her. That's when the Archangel Galadriel appeared in her dream and said:

    Citation:

    Dominique, God did not want women to be excluded from the priesthood. He made man and woman equal. That is why both men and women should be able to devote their lives to God in the same conditions, and therefore achieve the same charges in His Church.
    God does not want any more of this discriminatory attitude towards women.

    Dominique, you're the example of women worthy of the highest offices. Therefore, you will be an example for generations to come.

    Dominique, trust your faith and heed the requests of your parishioners.

    God is with you!


    In the morning, Dominique met her parishioners and agreed to become their pastor.

    She fulfilled her role with such Aristotelian fervour: gave sermons from her own wisdom, her piety, and her Aristotelian friendship, that her name finally reached the ears of Rome.

    Word then began to spread in Rome about the priest of Chinon, named Dominique, that she drew crowds in Anjou, that this priest was a beacon amid the horror of war, a glimmer of hope that was caring for thousands of parishioners.

    War seemed endless, and Dominique aged ... She soon chose a girl named Karine to be her successor.

    Dominique died in 1393. The news brought great sadness to the people of Anjou and there were many who attended the burial ceremony that was celebrated by her disciples.

    The news reached Rome, who decided to send an inquiry about this Dominique, who seemed destined for sanctification.

    Rome's envoy arrived in Chinon, where he found out the truth about Dominique and was shocked. He decided to take Karine to Rome and be tried and convicted for violating the canon law for occupying the position of a priest, she a mere woman, and thus to have continued the work of the unholy Dominique.

    Once in Rome, the process was begun against Karine, who defended Dominique with fervour, recounting what she had done. The Cardinals were so struck by the sincerity of this this girl that they decided to investigate.

    For many years, Karine fervently defended Dominique, and she summoned the parishioners of Anjou to corroborate the facts she recounted.

    And finally, it was in 1418, at the end of the Council of Constance, that Dominica was declared a Saint. The Church then recognized then that women should be welcomed to the Church and be given offices equally.
