PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –   May the God of Flexibility be with you. May you be soft and supple in the hands of the God who calls you. May you be open to God’s whispering in your heart and resilient in the storms that befall you. May this God open you to the sharing and disclosure of those who people your life and bring you to a place of utter compassion. May the God of Flexibility bless you.  –©Maxine Shonk, OP
