SOURCE OF ALL BLESSINGS,
you bless us every moment with
countless hidden things on
which our well-being depends,
though we will never know them —
from the water veins hidden deep
in the earth to the bacteria that
help us digest our food. May I pass
on blessings unnoticed for the
well-being of all.
Sense how it feels to honor the innumerable hidden things that make our lives — and life itself — possible, profound, and so often, pleasurable. When we allow ourselves to acknowledge our interdependence with, and dependence on, things we may never know, see, or understand, it expands our capacity for humility and connection.
“May this patchwork quilt of blessings help to sharpen your taste for the gift of life in its innumerable facets,” Br. David writes. “May you grow ever more blessed, ever more able to bless.”
Should you be inspired, please leave a reflection below…
