PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –    May the God of Justice bless you. May you embrace what is true in your life and speak with an undivided heart for the cause of what is right and good on the earth. May you know the mind of God in all your decisions and the hand of God in all your undertakings. May the God of Justice be with you. –©Maxine Shonk, OP
