  Br Peter received the habit from the 85th successor of St Dominic, Fr Carlos Azpiroz Costa, O.P., on 14 June, 2003 and made first profession on 30 June, 2004.


"The world is redeemed by the patience of God.  It is destroyed by the impatience of man."
- Pope Benedict XVI, Homily for Inauguration.


Homily for the 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Evening Prayer II (2005)
"We bless God (cf. 2 Cor 1:3) because he has blessed us (cf. Eph 1:3) – and not the other way around."

Homily for commemoration of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, Communion service (2005)
"Devotion to the Eucharistic Heart focusses on our share in this thanksgiving, especially through his gift to us of the Eucharist."

Homily for commemoration of Christ the Priest, Communion service (2005)
"We share in Christ, and thus in him we are a royal priesthood, a chosen race, a priestly nation, a people set apart to sing the praises of God who has called us into his marvellous light (cf. 1 Pet 2:9)."

Meditations on the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary, Devotions for Our Lady of Fatima (2005)
"Let us reaffirm our Faith in God’s great works of mercy. Let us ask Our Lady to pray with us and for us, for we are all sinners in need of God’s mercy."

Testimony
"The example of friendship of several Dominican priests and students had inspired me."
