PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU – May the God of Conversion be with you, freeing you to let go and to experience an inner renewal that is a transformation of heart and spirit. May your personal transformation make God’s love transparent through you and draw others to face the challenge of change in their own lives. May the blessing of Conversion, the blessing of Transformation be upon you.
