PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –     May the God of Fulfillment bless you. May you know the realization of peace in your world. May your dream of union come to fruition in every prayer that you speak, in each relationship you enter, and in the community that surrounds you. May God plant in you a steady awareness of the invitation to become whole and holy. May the God of Fulfillment be with you. –©Maxine Shonk, OP
