Blessed Reginald of Orleans OP

Few of the early members of the Order of Preachers are mentioned so often, or in terms of such high praise, as Blessed Reginald, whose memory is kept today, 12 February. His preaching was exemplary, and brought many young men to the Order, including St Albert the Great and Blessed Jordan of Saxony. The legend goes that Our Lady appeared to him in a vision and showed him the form of the habit of the Order, for until then they had worn the habit of a Canon Regular of Osma, which was what St Dominic had been. He is depicted on the left of this stained glass roundel from our Dominican priory church in London.
