United with the whole Dominican Order at this crucial moment in world history, we remember our brothers in prayer and thoughts as they come together for their General Chapter in in the city of Biên Hòa, Vietnam, from July 8th to August 4th. May their deliberations be guided by the Holy Spirit, so that grounded and built on love, the Order will proclaim God’s goodness for God’s glory and the Mission of Christ in the world, true to the charism of Our Holy Father Dominic.

Details: White lotus flower and black capa of the Dominican habit signifying the encounter between VietnameseCulture and Dominican Spirit.
Lotus flower is one of the most cherished symbols by the Vietnamese. Lotus blossoming in muddy ponds signifies man enduring hardship and yet maintaining noble dignity untouched.
The image may reflect well our Dominican mission at the frontiers encountering man’s sufferings and comforting him with the Gospel of peace.
