Commission to Preach

The church recognized the need to combat the heresies that were
prevalent at the time of St. Dominic.  St. Dominic was commissioned
 by the church to become a part of a preaching crusade. Here Dominic
 is shown receiving his commission from Sts. Peter and Paul.

St. Dominic saw that the preaching had little effect because the
preachers traveled in grand style.  He began using an itinerant style
of preaching with 3 Cistercians.  This approach proved to be
extremely successful, especially among the ordinary people.
