Bl. Humbert of Romans

Humbert,was elected to lead the Dominican order when many men and women had joined and the order was in need of better organization. Humbert, who had been a lawyer, established the liturgy, the houses, the missions, and the constitutions (or rules) in a clear and understandable way. His work gave the Dominicans the freedom to carry on the work of God in their teaching and preaching.
