Prayer: A Blessing

Blessed be the yearning that brought you here and quickens your soul with wonder. May you have the courage to listen to the voice of desire that disturbs you when you have settled for something safe.

May you have the wisdom to enter generously into your own unease and discomfort to discover the new direction your longing wants you to take.

May your expressions of love, creativity, and friendship be equal to the grandeur and the call of your soul.

May your heart never be haunted by ghost structures of old damage.

May a secret providence nurture and express your feelings and guide your thought onward and upward to the ways of freedom, peace, happiness, and new life.

May you know deep in your hearts that we all remain connected through the love of Christ through his Eucharist and that we will never part from him or one another.

May the one you long for long for you. May your dreams gradually reveal the destination of your desire.

May you know the urgency with which God longs for you. May you come to accept your longing as divine urgency.

May almighty God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit bless you and remain with you forever.
