Celebrating the Dominican Jubilee with Lectio Divina #OP800 November 10, 2015

Anonyme_français_-_Saint_Dominique_-_Musée_des_Augustins_-_D_1952_3 This past Sunday, the Western Province of the Dominican Order opened the Order’s 800-year Jubilee with mass at the various Dominican parishes around the province—or, at least, that’s what happened at St. Dominic’s in Eagle Rock, where my Lay Dominican chapter meets. The opening of the Jubilee year was celebrated at each of the masses on Sunday, and I and several of my chapter sisters had the privilege of representing the Dominican Laity at the 9AM mass on Sunday morning. It was a joyful time, and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

There will be a variety of celebrations and observances all throughout the year; and at Morning Prayer this morning, iBreviary helpfully informed me of one I’d been unaware of: the Order is publishing a series of lectio divina meditations for the daily mass readings each day. You can find them on the Order’s web site.

I’ve been trying to make it a point to spend time with the daily mass readings, and so naturally I jumped on this. Check it out!
