Blessing of the Great Winged Creatures

March 15, 2011

The resonant voice rose and the words seemed to be all around them
so that Meg felt that she could almost reach out and touch them:
“Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth,
ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein;
the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.
Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift their voice;
let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains.
Let them give glory unto the Lord!”

Throughout her entire body Meg felt a pulse of joy such as she had never known before.
