V Anniversary

Saint Cecilia

The feast of Saint Cecilia this year marks the fifth anniversary of my entrance into the the third order of Saint Dominic (these days its known as the priestly fraternity of Saint Dominic. The lay folk of the third order are said these days to belong to the Dominican laity).

I had the singular privilege, on that memorable night, of being accepted into the order in the Friar's Chapel in the Church of Saint Vincent Ferrer in Manhattan.

Saint Cecilia, Blessed Father Dominic, Bl. Jordan pray for us all.

All Souls day (Dominican rite) Nov.7

O God
the Giver of pardon
and the Author of human salvation,
we beseech Thy clemency, through the intercession of the ever Blessed Virgin Mary
and of all Thy saints,
to admit the brethren and sisters, the friends and the benefactors of our congregation,
to the fellowship of eternal life.
