 The Blessing of Light

May the blessing of light
be with you-
Light outside and light within.

Ireland's spring beauty, J. Mohr

May sunlight shine upon you and warm your heart
'Til it glows like a great peat fire
So that the stranger may come and warm himself by it,
And also a friend.

 

Glendalough Chapel in the rain, J. Mohr

May a blessed light shine out of the two eyes of you
Like a candle set in two windows of a house,
Bidding the wanderer to come in out of the storm.

 

Mist on lake at Glendalough, J. Mohr

May the blessing of rain,
the sweet, soft rain,
fall upon your spirit
And wash it fair and clean.

May it leave many a shining pool
where the blue of heaven shines,
And sometimes a star.

 

 Sun's warmth after rain, G. Wakenhut

May the blessing of earth,
the good, rich earth
be with you.

 

The Burren vegetation, G. Wakenhut

May you ever have a kindly greeting
for those you pass
As you go along its roads.

May the earth be soft under you
when you rest upon it,
Tired at the end of the day.

 

Ancient stone burial ring
J. Mohr

May earth rest easy over you
when at the last you lie under it.

 

Perspective from Croagh Patrick summit
G. Wakenhut

May the earth rest so lightly over you
That your spirit may be out
from under it quickly,

 

Celtic cross at Monasterboice cemetery, G. Wakenhut

And up, and off,
and on its way to God.

We found this blessing in the book entitled, An Irish Blessing, A Photographic interpretation by Cyril A. Reilly and Renee Travis Reilly, Sorin Books, P.O. Box 1006, Notre Dame, IN 46556-1006.  (Permission to review granted by publishers)

Several of these photos were taken during our Journey to the Edge spiritual retreat in June 2004 by Sr. Julia Mohr.  We appreciate her talents and her willingness to share them with you.
