A Blessing from Syria

January 1, 2011

May God, the unsearchable abyss of peace, the ineffable sea of love,
the fountain of blessings, and the bestower of affection,
who sends peace to those that receive it,
open to you this day the sea of His love,
and water you with plenteous streams from the riches of His grace.
May God make you a child of quietness, and heir of peace.
May God enkindle in you the fire of His love.
May God strengthen your weakness with His power.
May God bind you and me and everyone else closely to Him and to each other in one firm and indissoluble bond of unity.

-Adapted from a prayer from the Syrian Clementine Liturgy

    Can you imagine if all of us invited God to strengthen our weakness with His power?

    I especially appreciate the ‘child of quietness.’

    Thank you for this.
