What is the Jubilee?

Body: 

Sent to preach the Gospel

The Order of Preachers  will celebrate a Jubilee Year with the theme “Sent to preach the Gospel”.  This marks the issuing of the Bulls promulgated by Pope Honorius III eight centuries ago, confirming the foundation of the Order, in 1216 and 1217.

The Jubilee Year properly speaking will be celebrated between November 7, 2015 (Feast of All Saints of the Order) and January 21, 2017 (the date of the Bull Gratiarum omnium largitori of Pope Honorius III).
