“Laudare, benedicere, praedicare”
For the jubilee of the Order, the liturgical commission of the Order organized a contest to create the official hymn of the celebration.
The winner was “Laudare, Benedicere, Predicare.” It was written by fr. Giuseppe-Pietro Arsciwal from the province of the Philippines. We have been singing it each morning during this session. You can sing along if you download it.
Laudare, Benedicere, Prædicare
Laudare, we praise our Lord with our saints
Benedicere, we lift our voice in song
Prædicare, we proclaim Your Word to the world.
Sent out to preach by Dominic
sent two by two to all the world
sent out to study the Gospel of grace
to find new ways to preach.
Un coeur, une âme, tous donnés
joyeux amis, apprenez nous
pour les pêcheurs, miséricorde.
Presencia del amor de Dios
Sembradores de esperanza
Embrace with grace the marketplace
Embrace the world not of the world
Embrace the mission with compassion
to preach the word to the world
