Ang taong ito ng 2012 ay idineklara ng Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines bilang YEAR OF THE MISSION. Idineklara ito ng Simbahan ay para bigyan diin kung ANO BA TALAGA ANG MISYON NG SIMBAHAN SA MUNDONG ITO? Kapag naririnig natin ang salitang SIMBAHAN, ang iniisip natin ay ang gusali na gaya ng Santo Domingo Church diyan sa Quezon City, ang iniisip natin ay ang mga namumuno sa simbahan gaya ng Santo Papa, mga Cardinal at Obispo, mga Kaparian at Seminarista, mga Relihiyoso at Tercera.
ANG SIMBAHAN AY TAYONG LAHAT.
Kasama na diyan ang KAPARIAN, SEMINARISTA, RELIHIYOSO, TERCERA at ORDINARYONG LAYKO.
KAYO RIN AY BAHAGI NG SIMBAHAN SAPAGKAT KAYO AY BINYAGANG KATOLIKO,
At tayong lahat meron dapat gampanin para sa simbahan, meron tayong misyon na dapat gawin sa mundong ito.
ANO ANG MISYON NATIN SA MUNDONG ITO?
ANG MISYON NATIN AY IPALAGANAP ANG EBANGHELYO,
IPALAGANAP ANG KAHARIAN NG DIYOS AT IPAHAYAG SA BUONG MUNDO ANG PAGMAMAHAL NG DIYOS.
Ito ang kailangan ng mundo natin ngayon, ang mga MISYONERO.
ALL OF US ARE MISSIONARIES,
even the DOCTORS, NURSES, TEACHERS, CATECHISTS, EMPLOYEES are MISSIONARIES also.
TAYONG LAHAT AY MGA MISYONERO SA MUNDONG ITO,
ANG MISYON NATIN AY IPAKILALA SI HESUS SA MUNDO,
IPAHAYAG SA MUNDO ANG PAGMAMAHAL NG DIYOS SA ATIN.
Nakakalungkot dahil ilang libong taon na ang nakalilipas nang dumating si Hesus sa mundo.
AT MATAPOS ANG IKATLONG ARAW SIYA AY MULING NABUHAY.
ANG PAGKAPAKO AT PAGKAMATAY NI HESUS SA KRUS AY KATUPARAN NG KANYANG MISYON NA ILIGTAS TAYO SA KASALANAN AT KAPAHAMAKANG MAIDUDULOT NG KASAMAAN NG MUNDO.
After 2000 years ago nang tinubos tayo ni Hesus sa ating kasalanan at iniligtas tayo sa kamatayan.
MAY ILANG BANSA PA RIN NA HANGGANG NGAYON AY HINDI PA NAKIKILALA SI HESUS.
Sa panahong ito ay nakakalungkot din na unti-unting nauubos ang mga katoliko sa iba’t-ibang parte ng mundo,
MAY ILANG MGA BANSA NGAYON AY NAUUBOS NA ANG MGA PARI AT UNTI-UNTI NANG NAWAWALA ANG MGA PARI, RELIHIYOSO AT TERCERA,
ANG MASAKIT PA NITO ANG MGA KABATAAN NGAYON AY WALANG INTEREST SA BOKASYON SA BUHAY RELIHIYOSO!!!!
WALANG INTEREST NA MAGPARI!!!! MAGING BROTHER!!!! MAGMADRE!!!!! MAGING TERTIARY AT MAGING CONSECRATED LIFE!!!!
ANG MGA PARI, BROTHER, MADRE, TERTIARY AT CONSECRATED LIFE NA NAKIKITA NINYO NGAYON BALANG ARAW AY MAWAWALA RIN KAMI SA MUNDONG ITO,
KUNG MAWALA NA KAMI SA MUNDONG ITO,
SINO NA ANG PAPALIT SA AMIN SA MGA SUSUNOD NA HENERASYON?
SINO NA ANG MAGPAPALAGANAP AT MAGPAPAHAYAG NG EBANGHELYO?
Kaya ang simbahan natin ngayon ay nanawagan sa mga kabataan ngayon na makiisa sa misyon ng simbahan,
TUMUGON KAYO SA TAWAG NG DIYOS NA KAYO AY MAGING PARI, BROTHER, MADRE AT TERTIARY NG DOMINICAN ORDER DOON SA SANTO DOMINGO CHURCH.
ANG DOMINICAN ORDER LALO NA SA DOMINICAN PROVINCE OF THE PHILIPPINES DOON SA SANTO DOMINGO CHURCH AY NAG-AANYAYA SA LAHAT NG MGA KABATAAN NA YAKAPIN ANG PAMUMUHAY NI SANTO DOMINGO DE GUZMAN SA PAMAMAGITAN NG PAGPAPARI, PAGIGING BROTHER, PAGMAMADRE AT PAGIGING TERTIARY.
Kung ang pakiramdam ninyo ay KAYO ANG TINATAWAG NG DIYOS NA MAGING DOMINIKANO AT DOMINIKANA AY PUMUNTA PO KAYO SA SANTO DOMINGO CHURCH DOON SA QUEZON CITY AT HANAPIN NINYO PO ANG VOCATION DIRECTOR NG DOMINICAN PROVINCE OF THE PHILIPPINES NA SI FR ROY RODRIGUEZ OP O KAYA NAMAN AY PWEDE KAYONG LUMAPIT SA MGA DOMINICAN STUDENT BROTHERS DOON SA DOMINICAN SEMINARY NG SANTO DOMINGO CHURCH.
Ito ang kailangan ng mundo ngayon, ang mga DOMINICANS. Sapagkat marami pa ang hindi nakakakilala sa ating panginoon, marami pa ang hindi nakakarinig sa ebanghelyo ng ating panginoon.

WHO ARE THE LAY DOMINICANS?
The lay Dominicans or Secular Dominicans, as they are called today, (and who in the past have been known as Dominican Tertiaries, members of the Third Orders of St. Dominic, or members of the Order of Penance of St. Dominic) are ‘an Association of the faithful living in the world, who participate in the religious and apostolic life of the Order of Friars Preachers under the guidance of the Dominican Brethren and according to the Rule approved by the Holy See and thus strive for Christian Perfection.’ Although the word profession is often used, they do not take vows and, therefore, cannot be strictly called religious; yet, in a wide sense, they may be called religious living in the world. (R.Vahey, OP,Information)
‘Their vocation is superior to membership in a sodality or confraternity because it includes canonical status in a major religious Order and embraces a more universal objective’ (J.Rubba OP, Third Order of St. Dominic)
It is composed of Lay people, men and women, single and married, who live in and are a sign to the World.
(Excerpts from: Lay Dominicans Manual by:Eladio Neira, OP p29)
From the very beginning of the Order of Preachers, there are already groups of Lay people that participates in the apostolic works and associates themselves with the dominican friars. accordingly, “it has its origin in one of the twelfht century penitential movements which centered around St. Dominic, the founder of the Order of Preachers gathered around himself groups of Lay People for the spiritual and material defense of the Church and, ultimately for the participation in the Apostolate. (E.Neira, O.P.) “Thus, it is not surprising that the “history” of the Third Order does not begin in 1285, when the Master General Munio de Zamora officially promulgated its Rule, nor back to the early years of the 13th century, when St. Dominic lived and worked. The “history” of the Third Order goes back many decades before that. To understand what the Third Order is and whence it came, we have to look at the Church of the Middle Ages and the society in which it lived.” (Richard Weber)
it was known then to be the Order of Penitents of St. Dominic, Third Order of St. Dominic, and now as “Lay Dominican Fraternities”.
