Bologna S. Maria e S. Domenico della Mascarella
Dies Natalis Sancti Dominici
Our Creator, Redeemer, Paraclete,
In prayer, we lift up our praise,
our blessing, our preaching.
Eight hundred years ago,
you called Saint Dominic
to enter into eternal life,
and to join you at table in heaven.
As we celebrate this Jubilee,
feed us and fill us with grace
so that we may realize our mission
of preaching for the salvation of souls.
Help us nourish your people,
with your Truth, your Mercy and your Love.
until the promised day
when we are all united with the blessed.
We ask this,
as One Dominican Family,
through the pleas of Mary,
in the name of Jesus. Amen
