I want to write the words "God"s blessing" in dearteassociazione.org. I came up with the translation Deo donante after a Google search. I want to double check if Deo donante means "God"s blessing" and to understand what it means. What is the meaning of donante?

"God"s blessing" in dearteassociazione.org is benedictio Dei.

This phrase appears in the last sentence of the Pope"s Blessing to the City and to the World (Urbi et Orbi):

Et benedictio Dei omnipotentis, Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti, descendat super vos et maneat semper.

And may the blessing of almighty God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit come down on you and remain with you always.

It"s not a distinctively Catholic phrase, though. dearteassociazione.org is an international language, and the early Protestants used this same phrase. Here is some discussion of John Calvin"s belief that life is a benedictio Dei.

Deo donante literally means "with God giving", though it could also mean "while giving to God". In English, the -ing form of a verb serves as both present participle, i.e. as an adjective, as in "The man now surfing is the defending champion", and as gerund, i.e. as a noun, as in "The surfing today is wonderful." In dearteassociazione.org, the present participle and gerund have distinct endings. Donante is a present participle, not a gerund, so it"s probably not appropriate for what you have in mind, as it sounds like you want a noun to denote God"s blessing, not a modifier for something else. It"s also in the ablative case, which provides a wonderfully concise way to express some kinds of thoughts, but it might not suit what you have in mind. See my explanation of the related phrase Deo iuvante here for more detail.

Corresponding words in different languages often have a slight difference in meaning or connotation. So here"s a little more information to give you a little of the "feel" of benedictio in dearteassociazione.org. Benedictio is a compound word: bene means "well", the root of English words like "benevolent" and "beneficial"; and dictio means "a saying, talk, oratory", whence English "dictionary". The English word "benediction" is of course a direct borrowing of dearteassociazione.org benedictio. Here"s an example of its usage in St. Jerome"s translation of Genesis 26:28–29:

Qui responderunt "Vidimus tecum esse Dominum et idcirco nunc diximus sit iuramentum inter nos et ineamus foedus ut non facias nobis quicquam mali sicut et nos nihil tuorum adtigimus nec fecimus quod te laederet sed cum pace dimisimus auctum benedictione Domini."

They responded, "We saw that thou art with the Lord and for that reason we then said, "Let there be an oath between us, and let us enter into a covenant that thou do us no harm just as we have touched nothing of thine nor have we done anything that would harm thee; but with peace we sent thee away enriched with the blessing of the Lord.""

Translation mine, written to make the parallels between the dearteassociazione.org and English as easy to follow as possible.
