The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up.
Paul Valery

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY – On November 15,1943 Leonard Bernstein’s Philharmonic debut makes front-page news. At a time when classical music received nearly as much coverage as professional sports in the popular press, it was major news when an unknown 25-year-old led the nation’s most important symphony orchestra in a Carnegie Hall concert broadcast live to a radio audience in the millions.

PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –  May the God of Nearness be with you. May you know God ever near you and never far from your deepest place of longing. When you reach out your hand to God may you know God’s hand already reaching for yours. And may you have the courage and the wisdom to extend God’s hand to those who approach you in need. May the God of Nearness bless you. –Maxine Shonk, OP
