PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –   May the God of Gentleness be with you, caressing you with sunlight and a gentle breeze; may God’s tenderness shine through you, warming all who are hurting and lonely. May you hold everything of who you are in open, loving hands, noticing and cherishing the goodness of your creation. May the blessing of Gentleness be on you. — Maxine Shonk, OP
