Happy Anniversary to the Order of Preachers!
I truly enjoy this feast. As a member of the Order, it brings me great joy to know that I am part of a family that is now overs 800 year old, and which has been endowed by almighty God with so many holy men and women. It is also a great joy to me that there is a specific date which serves as the birthday, so to speak, for the Order. The ferial Office for Advent is prayed, and a commemoration of the feast is made at Lauds only.
