PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –    May the God of Living Water bless you. May God cleanse your perspective on the world around you, removing all that is unholy. May God refresh your spirit and renew you for the sake of the Gospel. May you be submerged and saturated with a deep sense of God’s profound care for you and may this awareness wash over all those you touch. May the God of Living Water bless you. –©Maxine Shonk, OP
