BLESSING OF THE DAY - May God make you holy in your tears, whether tears of sadness, joy, anger, or fear. May divine compassion wash over you as you pour yourself into God's presence. May you experience the tenderness of God who knows you through and through and holds you close. May you be the one who catches the tears of all those who cry for understanding. May the God of Tenderness become known to you and bless you. --Maxine Shonk, OP
