PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU – May you know blessing when you are feeling apprehensive about many things and anxiety blocks the vision of your life. At those times may you recall that God’s vision for you remains steadfast and clear, that you are held on a steady course toward the very heart of God. May this remembering bring you back to a place of peace, a place of letting go and letting God guide your life. May this God of Clear Vision bless you. –Maxine Shonk, OP
