Letters to My Brothers and Sisters

by Donald J. Goergen, O.P.


Donald J. Goergen, O.P. was provincial of the Province of St. Albert the Great U.S.A., from 1985 - 1994. He is a teacher, lecturer, and theologian. He has published many articles and books, including a series on Christology.

Fr. Goergen writes: "The letters in this volume were originally written to my Dominican brothers in the Province of St. Albert the Great, U.S.A. The Province judged them to have value beyond the Dominican family and asked that they be published in oder to make them more widely available. The letters and addresses included here cover a range of issues pertinent to the future of religious life."
