The Holy Rosary has a special place in the Dominican history and spirituality. Therefore, the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary (7 October 2016) will be an important moment in the Jubilee Year.
We invite all monasteries, convents, communities and fraternities to prepare a celebration for the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, in cooperation with the local church and, if possible, with other groups that share the devotion to the Holy Rosary. It is a way to remember our love and closeness to this form of prayer that today is the heritage of the whole Church. This Feast can also be held in a special way in the many sanctuaries dedicated to Our Lady around the world where the Dominican Family is present.
The Steering Committee of the Jubilee, in cooperation with the General Promoter of the Holy Rosary and the Dominican Liturgical Commission, shall prepare a catechetical and liturgical material for the celebration of this feast.
The various local initiatives will be linked to a global event: a meeting of prayer for peace in the Basilica of Our Lady of Peace in Yamoussoukro (Ivory Coast). The entire Order will be invited to join this common prayer.
