On this day – March 13, 1781, The German-born English astronomer William Hershel discovers Uranus, the seventh planet from the sun. Herschel’s discovery of a new planet was the first to be made in modern times, and also the first to be made by use of a telescope, which allowed Herschel to distinguish Uranus as a planet, not a star, as previous astronomers believed.

PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –   May God be with you when you are discouraged and your hope and anticipation are diminished by the circumstances of the life around you. At those times may you set your sights on the passion that God has awakened within you and may you draw courage from it. May your embrace of God’s dream once again fire that passion in you. May the God of Encouragement bless you. — Maxine Shonk, OP
