PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –     May the Listening God embrace you. May your voice become true and clear in the presence of the God who listens. May you come close to the ear of God and entrust your deepest secrets, the unspeakable and the unresolved, the tender truth of your devotion and the fragile residue of the fear in your heart. May the Spirit pray in you as you open yourself up in God’s hearing. May God the Listener bless you. –©Maxine Shonk, OP
