PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –  May the God of Imagination be with you. May the God who imagined you mold and fashion you into “Godness.” May you see who you are in the eyes of God and may you share the vision of God for the entire world. In the name of God may you imagine and create a world of peace, justice, and love. May the God of Imagination bless you. –Maxine Shonk, OP
