Returning to the blog after a summer break!

After a splendid summer break it’s time to return to regular posting. I begin with a Friendship Blessing from John O’Donohue

  1. Welcome back! I appreciate this prayer. Do you have a source for it that does not include the background image? I experience the background as hetero/romantic.

    • Elizabeth you can find the blessing in John O’Donohue’s book Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom; HarperCollins…my hard copy is on loan or I’d give you the page #… here’s the text sans image:

      May you be blessed with good friends.
      May you learn to be a good friend to yourself.
      May you be able to journey to that place in your soul
      where there is great love, warmth, feeling, and forgiveness.
      May this change you.
      May it transfigure that which is negative, distant, or cold in you.
      May you be brought in to the real passion, kinship, and affinity of belonging.
      May you treasure your friends.
      May you be good to them and may you be there for them;
      may ay they bring you all the blessings, challenges, truth, and light
      that you need for your journey.
      May you always be in the gentle nest of belonging with your anam cara

      • My friend and I will read this together although we are apart and it will
        be our way of “holding hands through our journey”! Thank you,
        Susan
