May you be blessed in the holy
names of those who carry your
pain up the mountain of transfiguration.

May you know tender shelter and healing
blessing when you are called to stand in
the place of pain.

May the places of darkness within you be
surprised by light.

May you be granted the wisdom to avoid
false resistance and when suffering
knocks on the door of your life, may
you be able to glimpse its hidden gift.

May you be able to see the fruits of

May memory bless and shelter you with the
hard-earned light of past travail, may
this give you confidence and trust.

May a window of light always surprise you.

May the grace of transfiguration heal your

May you know that even though the storm
might rage not a hair of your head will
be harmed.

John O'Donohue - "Eternal Echoes - Exploring Our Hunger To Belong"
