Today we celebrate the Patronage of the Blessed Virgin Mary over the Order of Preachers (also known as the Dominican Order). Today we renew our consecration to Mary and pray for her intercession for the Order in all its many forms. We also pray for the Master of the Order, Fr. Bruno Cadore, and all his assistants at the Curia at Santa Sabina in Rome. May God continue to grant us new vocations and perseverance in the life of the Order through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary!
