Dominicans of the Minerva

Sadly, there are just a handful left.  A fine bunch, but there are so very few Italian vocations.

I even heard the Dominicans recently had to close their fabled convent in Naples, where Thomas Aquinas had lived.  There are just no Italian Dominicans left and they have next to no ordinations in the Italian provinces.  A titanic loss to witness the death of something so praiseworthy and so needed - more today than ever.
