Dominican Vestition in Croatia (VIDEO)
Next year the General Chapter of the Dominican Order will be held in the Province of Croatia. Here is a recent video of their vestition of 5 novices for the Croatian province. If you want to see our profession video from a few years back, click here or the photos from this year's novices, click here. As you can see we have a little different tradition for the Rite of Vestition.
Among the famous Dominicans from the Croation province is Bl. Augustine Kazotic (1260-1323)
Croatian, priest, preacher, administrator, Bishop of Zagreb, later of Lucera, PRAY FOR US!
Blessed Augustine Kazotic OP, Friar and Bishop, was born at Trogir in Dalmatia (Yugoslavia) about 1260 and entered the Dominican Order at an early age. He completed his studies at the University of Paris and returned to his own country where he was regarded as an excellent preacher. In 1303 Blessed Benedict XI appointed him Bishop of Zagreb where he successfully restored order in the aftermath of the Tartars. In 1317 he was transferred to the See of Lucera, where he labored to restore peace after the Muslim withdrawal and completely reformed the diocese. He died there on August 3, 1323.
