Mercy Moments 116: Anam Cara is God's Gift

9th Jun 2021

This week we invite you to spend a moment to engage with John O’Donohue’s book Anam Cara: Spiritual Wisdom from the Celtic World focussing on friendship and ancient belonging. Enjoy!


A Blessing for the Senses

May your body be blessed.
May you realize that your body is a faithful
and beautiful friend of your soul.
And may you be peaceful and joyful
and recognize that your senses
are sacred thresholds.
May you realize that holiness is
mindful, gazing, feeling, hearing, and touching.
May your senses gather you and bring you home.
May your senses always enable you to
celebrate the universe and the mystery
and possibilities in your presence here.
May the Eros of the Earth bless you.

– John O’Donohue, from  Anam Cara (pages 105-106)
