From the Desk of Joan Dinopol
President, North America Chapter
Filii Sancti Dominici Philippinensis, Inc.
On behalf of the North America Filii Chapter, I congratulate the editorial staff and advisory body of Epistoliorum for launching the maiden issue of our newsletter.
Epistoliorum was initiated to provide an avenue for Filii members to express solidarity, spontaniety, “and to present original works and literature that are distinctly Filii and therefore Dominican-inspired through electronic, print and social media.”
I, therefore, challenge every Filii member to bridge the gap between us although we may be oceans apart. Stand up and be counted! Let us keep the Dominican spirit burning in our hearts. “ Ang lahing Dominiko ay laging Dominiko.” Let this be our battle-cry from this day forward. We are in this together, my dear brothers in St. Dominic.
I wish us all success as we go about our daily challenges. May God bless us all through the intercession of our beloved Mother Mary and our holy founder St. Dominic.
