Irish Blessings


One thing I have learned over the years, is that when it comes to blessings, the Irish are eloquently articulate. On this St. Patrick's Day weekend, I offer some of my favorites.

An Old Irish Blessing 
May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand. 

An Irish Prayer
 May God give you... For every storm, a rainbow, For every tear, a smile, For every care, a promise, And a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, A faithful friend to share, For every sigh, a sweet song, And an answer for each prayer. 

An Old Celtic Blessing
 May the blessing of light be on you— light without and light within. May the blessed sunlight shine on you and warm your heart till it glows like a great peat fire. 

An Old Irish Blessing
 May love and laughter light your days, and warm your heart and home. May good and faithful friends be yours, wherever you may roam. May peace and plenty bless your world with joy that long endures. May all life's passing seasons bring the best to you and yours!
