Selected Articles from the Archives
of a Dominican Journal of Spirituality

From 1949 through 1992, first as Cross and Crown and then as Spirituality Today the Chicago Dominican province published a quarterly journal of spirituality in the Dominican tradition. The publication's archives contain much that is still of great value. We share these articles with our visitors with a promise of more to come in the future.
