Prayer for the Jubilee of the
Foundation of Dominican Nuns
God of Mercy,
In your eternal Wisdom,
you called your servant Dominic
to set off on a journey of faith
as itinerant pilgrim and preacher of grace.
With your Word of gentle Truth in his heart and on his
Dominic invited the first sisters and brothers to join
in a life of contemplative obedience
in the service of the holy preaching.
As we commemorate this
we ask you to breathe the Spirit of the risen Christ
into our hearts and minds.
so that we might faithfully and joyfully
proclaim the gospel of peace, |
through the same Christ, our Lord.
