We hold in great esteem the glorious founder of our Order, St. Dominic. Under his patronage, we pray to be fervent Preachers of the Word of God to the world in need, for the glory of God and for the salvation of souls.
O light of the Church, teacher of truth,
Rose of patience, ivory of chastity,
You freely poured forth the waters of wisdom,
Preacher of grace unite us with the blessed.
St. Dominic, pray for us.
