By Ambroise Gardeil, O.P. | Introduction by Romanus Cessario, O.P.
The Gifts of the Holy Spirit in the Dominican Saints introduces us to a series of Dominican saints and illustrates how each saint embodies a particular beatitude and Gift of the Holy Spirit. We learn of the spirited fortitude of St. Catherine de Ricci, the exceptional prudence of St. Antoninus, and the extraordinary wisdom of St. Thomas Aquinas. As Fr. Romanus Cessario, O.P., states in the Introduction: “Dominican saints characteristically labor without toil. They demonstrate the connaturality of holiness, that is, they exhibit the way that the elevated life of grace attaches itself to our human nature and capacities.”
Ambroise Gardeil, O.P., (1859–1931) was a French Dominican friar for 52 years. A Master of Sacred Theology, he was known for his contributions to the renewal of Thomism in the nineteenth century. He co-founded the Revue Thomiste, which is dedicated to building appreciation of Thomistic thought. A leader in the Dominicans’ intellectual life, Gardeil served as a revered teacher and mentor to numerous students, including Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange, O.P., and Martin Gillet, O.P.
