His name is Father Gerard Francisco Timoner, III, OP; and he is the first Asian to be elected Master of the Order! Father Timoner is the former Provincial of the Province of the Philippines. He also served as vice-chancellor of the University of Santo Tomas in Manila. Father was one of the chaplains for the Dominican monastery in Cainta outside of Manila. We hear he has a love for the nuns of the Order. Praise the Lord! Before being elected, he served as Socius (Assistant to the Master) for the Asia-Pacific region of the Order of Preachers.
