PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –  May God’s spirit bless you when you see or experience injustice. May you be overtaken with a passion for truth as you guard and preserve your own integrity. May you stand up for those without voice, stand in for the victims of oppression and discrimination, and stand out in your persistence and desire for God’s peace and justice in the world. May you live your life in pursuit of truth and in profound reverence for all of God’s creation. May the God of Justice bless you always. –©Maxine Shonk, OP
