About the Author
Marie-Dominique Philippe (1912-2006) was a Dominican philosopher and theologian. He was ordained in 1936, and in 1945 was sent as a professor to the (Pontifical, Dominican) University of Fribourg (Switzerland), where he taught until 1982.
Alongside his teaching, Fr. Philippe gave lectures in philosophy and theology in very different environments — for family associations, business leaders, physicians, Christian trade unions, and artists. He wrote many books of philosophy and spiritual theology which cover a wide field of study and interest: reflections on mathematics and medicine, the philosophy of art, metaphysical studies, works on the family, as well as notable books on the Gospel of John, and the mystery of Christ and the Virgin Mary.
Although he remained a Dominican, he founded the Community of St. John in 1975, a vibrant new religious community which has been growing throughout the world.
Archbishop Myers of Newark recently said of Fr. Philippe: “From to time to time in life one encounters persons with an exceptional, even Godly presence. This latter is characterized by a sense of the Presence of God, by love for the Church, by peace, joy, humility and caring. To be with Fr. Philippe was to have a clear experience of all of these qualities brought together in his unique person. Although it is not ours to judge, the sense of meeting a saint was difficult to avoid.”
