We told you it was coming …and here it is! The new official Rosary web site for the Dominican Order sees the light of day!
We really needed to review the old site, which has served you for almost 7 years now. Seven years of good and faithful service, with a daily update…in one of the 65 languages available on the site!
Thank you for your loyalty, which translates into an ever increasing number of visits!
For us this loyalty was an invitation to do even better, for you, for the promotion of the Rosary and for… Our Lady!
We had to choose from our treasure trove – almost 3,000 documents on line – the best, to present it to you remodeled and improved. So welcome to this new site which we wanted to be clearer, more interactive, more modern…in a word, much nicer!
We have chosen a symbolic date for its launch, at the very heart of the Jubilee of the foundation of the Order of Preachers: that of the Annunciation of the Lord, which falls this year on 4 April.
We count on your loyalty, of course, but even more on your patience and your indulgence: we have to carry out numerous changes…which will undoubtedly require a period of adaptation.
So we entrust ourselves to your prayers… and to the intercession of the Archangel Gabriel, declared by Pope Pius XII “celestial patron of all activities relating to telecommunications.”
A beautiful Jubilee… with the Rosary… more than ever!
