Si Santo Domingo De Guzman OP ay isinilang noong 1170 sa Caleruega, Spain kay Felix De Guzman at Juana De Aza. Bago pa man ang kanyang kapanganakan, ang kanyang ina ay nagkaroon ng panaginip na ang anak niya ay isang aso na magdadala ng isang sulo na magbibigay liwanag sa sangkatauhan. Noong siya’y isang mag-aaral sa Palencia, ipinagbili ni Santo Domingo ang kanyang mga libro upang may maipakain sa mga naghihirap noong panahon ng tag-tuyot. Isa sa kanyang mga biyahe kasama si Bishop Diego d’ Azevedo, nadiskubre ni Santo Domingo na maraming mga kristyano ang napahiwalay sa ebanghelyo, sa dahilang hindi nila maabot o maintindihan ang mga turo ng simbahan kung kaya’t kanilang niyakap ang mga maling paniniwala.
Bumukas ang mga mata ni Santo Domingo sa mundo ng KAMANGMANGAN at KAWALAN NG DIREKSYON. Ito ang nagtulak sa kanya upang IKALAT ANG MABUTING BALITA NG EBANGHELYO sa pamamagitan ng PANGANGARAL at MABUBUTING HALIMBAWA para muling bumalik ang mga tao sa tunay na pananampalataya.
Nakumbinsi si Santo Domingo na bumuo ng isang grupo ng mga sanay na tagapagpahayag ng mabuting balita na magkakalat ng katotohanan ng ebanghelyo sa pamamagitan ng pagtuturo at sa pag-aalay ng kanilang simpleng buhay para sa diyos. Hindi lang kilala si Santo Domingo bilang mahusay na taga-pahayag ng mabuting balita, siya’y kilala rin sa kanyang kabanalan sa buhay komunidad at sa mataimtim na pagdarasal.
Ang ORDER OF PREACHERS o mas kilalang DOMINICANS ay nabuo bilang isang pamilya na mga Pari, Madre, Cooperator Brothers at Laykong Dominikano na lumaganap at patuloy pa ring nagdadala ng liwanag ng katotohanan. Isang okasyon, nagpakita ang ating Mahal na Ina kay Santo Domingo upang ipagkatiwala sa kanya ang pagpapalaganap ng debosyon ng Banal na Rosaryo. Bago siya namatay, ipinangako ni Santo Domingo sa kanyang mga taga-sunod na sila’y tutulungan nito sa pagpapahayag ng katotohanan kahit na siya’y mawala sa kanila.

WHO ARE THE LAY DOMINICANS?
The lay Dominicans or Secular Dominicans, as they are called today, (and who in the past have been known as Dominican Tertiaries, members of the Third Orders of St. Dominic, or members of the Order of Penance of St. Dominic) are ‘an Association of the faithful living in the world, who participate in the religious and apostolic life of the Order of Friars Preachers under the guidance of the Dominican Brethren and according to the Rule approved by the Holy See and thus strive for Christian Perfection.’ Although the word profession is often used, they do not take vows and, therefore, cannot be strictly called religious; yet, in a wide sense, they may be called religious living in the world. (R.Vahey, OP,Information)
‘Their vocation is superior to membership in a sodality or confraternity because it includes canonical status in a major religious Order and embraces a more universal objective’ (J.Rubba OP, Third Order of St. Dominic)
It is composed of Lay people, men and women, single and married, who live in and are a sign to the World.
(Excerpts from: Lay Dominicans Manual by:Eladio Neira, OP p29)
it was known then to be the Order of Penitents of St. Dominic, Third Order of St. Dominic, and now as “Lay Dominican Fraternities”.
