In numerous Dominican provinces, the brothers and sisters of the Order suggest diverse activities to celebrate, as is fitting, Our Lady of the Rosary.
Pilgrimages are in fact organized in her honour. It is the case for two French provinces which will find themselves in Lourdes during the first week of October.
This year it will be the province of Saint Vincent Ferrier in Central America which will honour the Queen of the Rosary in particular fashion.
Our Lady of the Rosary is much venerated there since she is the patroness of the Archdiocese of San Salvador and of Guatemala.
In this last country, it is the 125th anniversary of the celebration of the month of October which will be marked this year and it is with joy that I will travel there to participate with our brothers and sisters!
Together we will reflect on the theme of “Mary, contemplation and predication of the Word.”
Let us ask for the intercession of Our Lady of the Rosary so that, following her example, we may contemplate the Word and give it to the world.
A very good month of the Rosary to all!

General Promoter of the Rosary
