A Dominican and the Rosary -- The Provincial of the Province of England prays the Rosary with our Pilgrimage group in Lourdes. The Rosary is a particularly Dominican devotion, preached and propagated by the Order over the centuries, to focus the mind on Christ and the mysteries of salvation.

A lit candle is a constant prayer to God, reminding Him of our love and our petitions.
