A Call to Anger - a Blessing

“It would be lovely if we could rediscover our power to bless one another. I believe each of us can bless.” - John O’Donohue, To Bless the Space Between Us | A Book of Blessings.

This summer at Wellshire, we are exploring blessings and beginning to learn how we can bless one another.

“In the ecstasy and loneliness of one’s life, there are certain times when blessing is nearer to us than any other person or thing.” says O’Donohue. “A blessing is not a sentiment or a question; it is a gracious invocation where the human heart pleads with the divine heart.”

Are you pleading for God to give you God’s heart? A heart of action no longer indifferent and afraid.

May God’s calling to you take you down pathways you never anticipated.

A blessing for you.

For Citizenship

In these times when anger

Is turned into anxiety

And someone has stolen

The horizons and mountains,

Our small emperors on parade

Never expect our indifference

To disturb their nakedness.

They keep their heads down

And their eyes gleam with reflection

From aluminum economic ground,

The media wraps everything

In a cellphone of sound,

And the ghost surface of the virtual

Overlays the breathing earth.

The industry of distraction

Makes us forget

That we live in a universe.

We have become converts

To the religion of stress

And its deity of progress;

That we may have courage

To turn aside from it all

And come to kneel down before the poor,

To discover what we must do,

How to turn anxiety

Back into anger,

How to find our way home.

- John O’Donohue
