PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –   May the God of Simplicity be with you, leading you to a clear vision of all that is real and true and of God, leading you deeply into the mystery of childhood, of newness and awe. May your transparent presence to others reveal the authenticity and integrity that is the hallmark of a simple life. May the God of Simplicity bless you–©Maxine Shonk, OP
