The Jubilee gives us the opportunity to meet as a family to pray. For this reason, during the Jubilee Year, each monastery of the Order shall invite all members of the Dominican family in its respective city or region to meet on a particular day to pray the Rosary together.
On the opening day of the Jubilee, the Master of the Order will bless a number of "pilgrim rosaries" that will be sent to each Dominican monastery in the world. These are a symbol of communion for the entire Dominican family in prayer. Also, a schedule of the Jubilee will give two days at each monastery to invite the local Dominican Family it to pray the Holy Rosary, so we form a continuous chain of prayer throughout the Jubilee Year. The monastery became during those 48 hours, the center of the Dominican world of the Rosary.
This initiative also seeks to put in our common prayer some realities of the Dominican family in different parts of the world that face great needs, suffer violence or are in a particularly precarious situation. It is also an opportunity to give thanks for the existence of the Order and its great achievements over the centuries. Finally, this project is an activity that involves all branches of the Dominican family. The initiative is left to monasteries which can, if they wish, organize these prayer meetings.
