A letter from the Master of the Order to all Dominicans, opening the Dominican Month for Peace, asking for all of us to get involved and donate.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The Dominican Month of Peace for 2022 begins on the First Sunday of Advent, November 27, 2022, through end of December 2022, with a focus on Myanmar. The Month of Peace is an excellent way for all entities of the Order to stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in the Order who are struggling to relieve the marginalisation and persecution of various human populations (Ref. Tultenango #118).
Our sisters and brothers in Myanmar have been subjected to atrocities and human rights violation which has gone unreported in the main media. Recently, the military broke into the Dominican Sisters convent in Loikaw and encamped there while others moved into the friars’ convent. Luckily, neither the sisters nor the friars were in the convents at the time. We understand that the soldiers ransacked the rooms and took whatever was valuable.
We encourage you to be engaged in the Month of Peace to mark our solidarity with our Dominican Family in Myanmar, and to engage members of the Family within your entity, schools, parishes, other institutions, and friends. Please pray each week for our sisters and brothers in Myanmar who continue to face threat to their lives daily. We ask that you continue to remember our sisters and brothers in Ukraine who also face life-threatening situations and destruction of property.
Thank you for your cooperation and support of our Dominican Family in Myanmar. Remember that small deeds done with great love go a long way. God richly bless your efforts of solidarity with our sisters and brothers in Myanmar.
In St. Dominic,
