Known in religion as Dominic of the Most Holy Sacrament, Trinitarian priest; b. May 11, 1901, Dima (Basque region), Spain; d. April 8, 1927, Belmonte, Spain.

During his short life, he became known for the devotion with which he celebrated Mass and for his obedience. John Paul II praised Domingo, saying: "He strove to live according to two central principles of the spirituality of his order: the mystery of the Holy Trinity and the work of the Redemption, which lead to a life of intense charity" (beatification homily, Oct. 30, 1983).
