The Feast of Holy Father Dominic

"During the day, nobody was more sociable and happy with his brethren and companions, but at night nobody was more thoroughly dedicated to keeping vigil and to prayer. ‘At night there are tears, but joy comes with dawn.’ The day he gave to his neighbours, the night he gave to God, knowing that ‘By day the Lord will send his loving kindness, by night his song.’"

– from the Libellus 'On the Beginnings of the Order of Preachers' by Bl. Jordan of Saxony OP.
