PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –  May the God of Courage be with you, helping you to embrace the darkness and pain of the journey, calling you to stand in love with those who suffer. May this God carve her faithful love into your heart. May your inner self be transformed so that you can see more clearly your own journey as one of peace, hope, and solidarity. May the blessing of Courage be on you. –Maxine Shonk, OP
