PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –   May the God of Growing Things call you to ever more wonderful growth and wholeness. May the horizons of your life stretch far to the east and west, to the north and south…and in the stretching may you know the wonder of God’s universe within and around you. Through this awareness may you plant seeds of hope in all you meet. May the God of Growing Things be with you. –©Maxine Shonk, OP
