PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –  May the God of Mystery be with you. May you embrace all that is unexplained and unclear in your life. In that embrace may the God of Mystery reveal your true self. May you trust the answer as you live into the questions of your life and may God, whose ways are far above your own, bless you with an abiding presence to mystery. May the God of Mystery bless you. –Maxine Shonk, OP
