Contemplata aliis tradere along with Veritas(Truth) is a principal motto of the Dominican Order. The Latin translates as “to give to others the fruits of one's contemplation”. It derives from the works of St. Thomas Aquinas where he treats in the Summa Theologiae, II-II Q. 188, A.6 of the active and contemplative lives.
Here, in this part of our community website we wish to share with you some of the fruits of our (and others) contemplation for as St. Thomas tells us it is better to give to others the fruits of one's contemplation (contemplata aliis tradere) than merely to contemplate (contemplari).
