2B The Mountain Messenger, Thursday, December 20, 1990 Helen W. Searle The Mountain Messenger's Weekly Church Salute Saint Dominic of Silos In the year 1000, Dominic was born to peasant parents at Canas in the northwestern prov- ince of Navarre, Spain. He spent his youth as a shepherd in the hill country before he became a Benedictine monk at the monas- teD, of San Millan de CoRolla. During these medieval times, the provincial sovereigns often put claims on monastic prop- erty. When confronted with this show of force, Dominic refused to surrender the grounds of the monastery to Garcia Ill, ruler of Navarre, He was then removed from the monastery and sent to Silos to become abbot of the San Sebastian Monastery on the northwest coast of Spain. Under his leadership, San Se- bastian became one of the lead- ing spiritual houses of Spain. The scriptorium, the rooms were the copying, Illuminating, and lettering of manuscripts and documents took place, produced many outstanding examples of Christian art from this historic period. In addition to Dominic's spiri- tual guidance, of which he is ac- credited with miracles of healing, he rescued many Christian slaves from the Moors. Saint Dominic died on De- cember 20 at the age of 73 in the year 1073. The First Baptist Church of Rainelle was organized in 1911. Reverend John Bragg was the first pastor.
