PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –  May the God of Hills be with you. Remembering hills you have seen in the past, may your thoughts always rise up to goodness, truth, and beauty. May God carry you through your uphill struggles and run with you in the downhill freedoms. May your faith and your concern for others encourage them to walk the hills of their lives with courage, trust, and freedom. May the blessing of the Hills be with you. –©Maxine Shonk, OP
