PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU – May the God of Humility bless you. May you acknowledge the truth of who you are in God’s eyes: fearfully, wonderfully made! May this truth penetrate your awareness and bring you to a place of humble gratitude for your life. May you stand humbly before your friends and proclaim your giftedness and call their gifts from them. May the God of Humility be with you. –Maxine Shonk, OP
