Do you realize how precious you are to God, who has given you everything out of love?"

A Year of Jubilation

“Have charity one for another, guard humility, make your treasure out of voluntary poverty. Do not weep, I shall be of more use to you after death than I ever was in life.” 
                                                                                               - St. Dominic 

Graces abound this year, which is both the great jubilee year of mercy instituted by Pope Francis, and also the 800th anniversary of the founding of the Order of Preachers. Dominicans and the Archdiocese of New York have enjoyed a long and fruitful relationship with each other. In the early 19th-century, the first two bishops of the new Diocese of New York were Dominicans. And in the 1860s a community of the preaching friars established themselves on the Upper East Side. The Dominicans have served as chaplains at the Catholic Center at NYU since the late 1980s. 

Please keep the great the Archdiocese of New York and the Dominican friars in your prayers!
