PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –    May you know God is with you in your isolation whether it is by chance or by choice. When you are feeling remote and distracted from all else, when you stand alone with no visible means of support, may you find the God of union. May you discover this God in the small crevices of your awareness, loving you just as you are and inviting you to be one with yourself. And in that reunion may you come into one with all creation. May the God of Union bless you. –©Maxine Shonk, OP
