St. Dominic's approach to study was one of prayerful study and contemplation.
He didn't want the Dominicans only learning a lot. He wanted them to study God's word and law with hearts wide open, filled with love.
"Dominicans see study as prayer. You study to learn about God so that your heart can be filled with the things of God."
We should be learning about our faith with hearts wide open, seeking God. When we truly seek God in our study we will have a heart that is filled with the things of God.
