Today we greet all the members of the Dominican Order of Preachers, and pray for them in their life of prayer and their apostolate.

St Dominic said: ‘Arm yourself with prayer rather than a sword; wear humility rather than fine clothes’. Prayer and humility – these are essentials for us all. May the grace of God meet us in our deepest need, and may we be blessed through the intercession of St Dominic.
