December 18, 2013

Br. Cassian Derbes, O.P., was invited to speak to a group of delegates and diplomats from various countries at the United Nations in New York City recently. Hosted by Francis Dubois of France and Josef Klee of Germany, Br. Cassian’s presentation was entitled “Counsel to Kings: the Order of Preachers, Past and Present.” In it, Br. Cassian sought to show how Dominicans like St. Raymond of Peñafort and St. Thomas Aquinas have served as wise and learned counselors to leaders of both Church and State as preachers of the truth in the service of the common good. Br. Cassian was ordained to the diaconate in September and is assisting the Dominican Foundation as he prepares for his priestly ordination in May.
