This week’s “Embracing Faith” article will focus on Embracing Faith through Prayer.

Embracing Faith Through Prayer

With all eyes on the midterm elections, the war in Ukraine, and other issues throughout the world, many might not realize that yesterday, November 7th marked the Feast Day of All Dominican Saints and that today, November 8th, is a Day of Remembrance of Deceased Sisters and Brothers of the Order.

These days are quite meaningful, as Dominican congregations worldwide honor the saints and blessed throughout the Order who cannot be celebrated individually, as well as remember all Dominicans who passed on to eternal life.

During these days, take a moment to pray.

Let us Pray:

O God, who hast vouchsafed

to make the order of Preachers

fruitful in an abundant progeny of Saints,

and hast sublimely crowned in them

the merits of all heroic virtues,

grant us to follow in their footsteps,

that we may one day be united

in perpetual festivity in heaven

with those whom we today

venerate in common upon earth.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen. (1)
