PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –  May God carry you through times of contradiction and opposition. In those times may you know the total acceptance of the God who knows you. May God open you gently to the realities that frighten you and softly whisper in your ear the “truth that will set you free.” And may your opening invite those who oppose you to discover their truth as well. May the gentle God of Integrity bless you. –Maxine Shonk, OP
