SOURCE OF ALL BLESSINGS,
you bless us with falling stars,
as we look up into the glittering
vault of the sky on a mid-August
night and see the awesome cosmic
light show that has been going on
for eons before there were eyes to
watch it and will be going on when
no audience remains. When that
unpredictable flash happens, may I
make a wish that matters.
Sense how it feels to honor the perpetual gift of stars that are visible, invisible, seemingly steady, falling, and otherwise. When we allow ourselves to experience the awe evoked by such a wondrous display, and thus connect with the subtle and grand movements that fuel stars and people alike, we cultivate perspective and peace.
“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…
