PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –   May you be blessed by God when you begin to feel the pangs of resentment or envy. In those times may you open your own heart and see the utter uniqueness of your existence. May you see yourself as God sees you…beautifully and wonderfully made…in God’s very image! May you see the eyes of God gazing back at you with eternal pride and ever unconditional love. May these be the eyes with which you gaze upon those around you. May the God Within be blessing for you. — Maxine Shonk, OP
