 Saint Dominic of Silos grew up loving solitude as a shepherd in Spain. He eventually became a Benedictine abbot that reformed both physically and spiritually, the monastery in Silos. It became famous as a center of learning, charity, and healing. Wealthy patrons gave money to the monastery that allowed Christians to be ransomed from the Moors. 100 years after St. Dominic’s death, Blessed Joan of Aza made a pilgrimage to his tomb where he appeared to her and told her that her unborn son would grow up to be St. Dominic Guzman, the founder of the Dominicans.
