An Irish Blessing

Fr. Andrew Greely,
The Irish

"May you treasure wisely this jeweled, gilded time
And cherish each day as an extra grace
Whose heedless loss would be a tragic crime
In today's tasks may you find God's tender face.
May you know that to miss love's smallest chance
Is a lost opportunity, a senseless waste.
May you see need in every anxious glance,
May you sort out of the dull and commonplace
An invitation to God's merry, manic dance
And may the Lord of the dance bless you
As he invites you to the dance of the hallowed present
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
