The General Chapter, which is the highest authority in the Dominican Order, is an assembly of friars representing the Provinces of the Order. It gathers to discuss and define matters pertaining to the good of the entire Order. This will be the 290th General Chapter in the history of the Order. When necessary, it elects the Master of the Order. And indeed, one of the tasks of this Chapter will be to elect the eighty-seventh Master of the Order.
Please pray for our Order worldwide, for our collective wisdom, and for our fidelity to the Truth and the charism bequeathed to us by our Holy Father, St. Dominic!
