On the occasion of the Eighth Hundredth Jubilee of the Order (1216 – 2016) some of our gifted brothers in the community had undertaken the delicate venture of putting into music the official prayer of the Jubilee.
Brother Abraham Ning Ki Gei OP had created this beautiful melodic piece so that the jubilee prayer may be part of the communitarian repertoire to honor the Holy Founder. As it was suggested to him, the text was based from the Latin version of the prayer with some editing by the older Fathers. This is to express the universality of the Dominican charism of preaching and the inter-culturality of the Province. Brother Abraham confessed that “I tried to be faithful to the meaning and the rhythm of the Latin words” making it as an act of love and as a manifestation of gratitude for the vocation to preaching. We are delighted to offer the hymn to you.
