PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –  May the God of Faith be with you, sending you miracles and teaching you to expect them. May God show you things that can be seen only in the darkness. May your faith see you through the unknowns in your life, calling you to trust the unseen presence of God in them. May your faith serve as a beacon to light the way for other pilgrims on the way. May the blessing of Faith be upon you.  Maxine Shonk, OP
