November 9, 2015, Santa Sabina, Rome, Italy – Dominican Father Bruno Cadoré, Master of the Order, formally kicked off the Jubilee Year marking the 800th anniversary of the Order of Preachers with a special address to the Dominican family from Santa Sabina, the church in Rome where St. Dominic rooted his order’s preaching mission in 1216. The Jubilee Year began November 7, 2015, the Feast of All Dominican Saints, and will conclude on January 21, 2017.
“For [St. Dominic] to go and preach meant, as is shown in the mosaic of Santa Sabina, to preach unity: unity between the circumcised and the gentiles, unity among those who believe and those who do not believe, the unity of all, because all are capable of the same communion,” Father Cadoré said in his message.
