OP collects

Could any of you Dominican enthusiasts out there tell me the Latin text of the collects for the Feasts of All Saints of the Order of Preachers, and of the Patronage of St Thomas Aquinas in Catholic Schools (12th and 13th November in old OP calendar)? Many thanks.

There is a very interesting article by Laurence Pristas in New Blackfriars 86 (2005) on 'The Pre and PostVatican II Collects of the Dominican Doctors of the Church'. Worth a read. This link may work if you are coming from a network which subscribes to Blackwell Synergy online journals. Otherwise... try your local Dominicans?! Actually I have a vague notion that Blackwell publishing was doing a free trial access to its online journals a while ago, so you might be able to find some means of getting the text if you poke about a bit.

Try the folks at MONIALES OP ~ Dominican Nuns. There's an email address on the blog.

They had a post Feast of All Saints of the Order of Preachers, but it didn't have the Collect.

I will provide you with collects for the two feasts ASAP. Despite being a Dominican enthusiast and tertiary in formation I don't have a Dominican breviary of missal, though a missal is on the way from London. In the interim I will get the collects from the Dominican library tomorrow. Hope that will not be an inconvenience for you.

For 12th - all Saints of the Dominican Order:

Deus, qui Praedicatorum ordinem copiosa Sanctorum sobole fecundare dignatus es, atque in ipsis heroica omnium virtutum merita sublimiter coronasti, da nobis illorum sequi vestigia: ut, quos hodie sub una celebritate veneramur in terris, iis perpetua tandem festivitate associemur in caelis. Per Dominum...

From '62 OP breviary, which doesn't have the 13th as it's a feast day in the universal calendar.
