Dominican Jubilee - towards 2016


The Dominican Order worldwide is planning to celebrate the 800th anniversary of its foundation in 2016 by focussing on various aspects of the Dominican charism in the years leading up to the jubilee. The focus for this year 2009 is 'Saint Dominic, Preacher of Grace' with a parallel reflection on the first verse of the Prologue to Saint John's Gospel: 'In the beginning was the Word' (John 1:1).

As we will celebrate the feast of Saint Dominic tomorrow (August 8th), I would like to bring to your attention the web resource of the Dominican jubilee which can be found at http://curia.op.org/jubilee There are some very interesting reflections by various Dominican men and women throughout the world on the theme of Dominic, the Preacher of Grace.
