A Blessing from Pachomius

January 16, 2011

May God be with you.
May your springs of water become rivers
and your rivers become a sea.

May God give you the strength of his saints.
May no false god be found among you.
May your feet rest on the neck of the prince of darkness.
May you see Michael, the chief of the good spirits
at your right side.

– Pachomius, ca. 292-348, founder of Christian cenobitic monasticism

    What an amazing image- that of a massive, good angelic being at one’s side.
