A Gaelic Blessing

Saturday, 3 January 2009

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you;
moon and stars pour their beaming light on you.
Deep peace of Christ, the light of the world, to you.
- John Rutter


  1. Amen!

    Thank you, dear sister Sue!

  2. What a nice blessing. I would hate to lower the tone by pointing out that the guy in the photo has some serious problems in the willy department, so lets just ignore that. A very happy new year to you Sue by the way

  3. Marie, I suspect that belongs to the "bird" behind him. But who's looking... ;)

    The Celtic prayer tradition is quite earthy and beautiful. Thank you for sharing this lyrical blessing, Sue.

  4. LOL Marie. I noticed the willy department as well :) A poor case of bulging dick rather than a bulging disc. Probably as painful, too :)

  5. oops that was me signed in as marie. didn't know that she had been using my laptop. Anyway now I need to clear her good name

  6. LOL Stu. I was thinking, "Hey, how's this Marie chick. Lobs up on my blog for the first time talking about willies :)" Hehe :)

  7. so glad it wasn't only me who noticed the unfortunate camera angle ;-)

    celtic blessings have a certain resonance don't they

    Sue, have you ever read John O'Donohue? I have Eternal Echoes and Anam Cara, and hope to add his posthumously published book "To Bless the Space between us"

    i think you'd enjoy his work
