Know, dear brothers and sisters, that, as we have rejoiced at the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ, so by God's mercy we announce to you also the joy of his Resurrection, who is our Saviour: On the sixth day of March will fall Ash Wednesday, and the beginning of the fast of the most sacred Season of Lent..

Virgin Mother Mary, with trust we approach you. We, your preachers, fly to you who believed in the words sent from heaven and pondered them in your heart. We stand close around you, who are always present to the gathering of apostles. In you the Word was made flesh, that same Word which we receive, contemplate, praise together and preach.
Therefore, under your guidance we today devote ourselves anew to the ministry of the Word. Furthermore, we declare to you that, hearing with you the Word within ourselves and anointed by the Spirit, whose sacred vessel you pre-eminently are, we are consecrated in the name of Jesus Christ to the evangelization of the world. With the eyes of your heart enlightened, you understood the mystery of the Word. Through you we, too, are able to perceive the presence of that same Word in the history of our time, so that we may finally contemplate him face to face. Through you the Father sent his Son into the world that he might save it.
Through you we will be powerful in the sight of your people, becoming witnesses of that truth which frees and of that love which unites. To this place we have brought our needs and here we ponder them. Do you, Mother, give us strength and preserve the harmony of our family, so that what was begun by our profession may be brought to completion by our love for one another, for the salvation of the world and to the praise and glory of God. If celebrated at Morning Prayer, the Proclamation comes after the Final Prayer, the blessing being omitted.

Of the angels he says: "He makes his angels winds and his ministers a fiery flame"; but of the Son: "Your throne, O God, stands forever and ever; and a righteous sceptre is the sceptre of your kingdom.
You loved justice and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, anointed you with the oil of gladness above your companions"; and: "At the beginning, O Lord, you established the earth, and the heavens are the works of your hands.

You will roll them up like a cloak, and like a garment they will be changed. But you are the same, and your years will have no end. Thanks be to God. May Holy Mary and all the saints intercede for us before the Lord, that we may be worthy to be helped and saved by Him who lives and reigns for ever and ever. May the Lord bless us, and keep us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life. And may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Martin Wallace, O. Chair, Provincial Liturgical Commission martin. Dominic, the solemn and common celebration of the liturgy must be maintained among the principal duties of our vocation.
In the liturgy, especially in the Eucharist, the mystery of salvation is present and at work, a mystery in which we share and which we contemplate and proclaim in preaching to others so that they may be incorporated into Christ through the sacraments of faith. In the liturgy, together with Christ, we glorify God for the eternal plan of the divine will and for the wonderful order of grace, and we intercede with the Father of mercies for the entire Church as well as for the needs and the salvation of the whole world. Therefore, the celebration of the liturgy is the centre and heart of our whole life, whose unity especially is rooted in it.
