All over the world, there are millions of people who serve in silence, who do good around them, who sow seeds of love and compassion, unheralded and infinitely modest about their achievements. However, they are the glue that holds our society together.
We bless all those the world over who carry out their silent missions of service, compassion and mercy, without any concern for recognition or applause.
We bless them in their awareness that, through them, divine Love is smiling upon the world and the Christ energy is silently percolating through the tissue of human affairs and regenerating it.
We bless them in their silent rejoicing, that what they have done for the least of their fellow sisters and brothers, they have done for the universal Christ which is beyond all labels (including “Christian”), denominations and theologies.
We bless them in their deep sensitivity to the suffering of the world and all its beings, animal and vegetable as well as human. May they never be dragged down by it, but on the contrary be stimulated to radiate ever more love and deep caring, including to themselves as Your humble and shining reflection.
Thank you to Manuela and our friends at The Gentle Art of Blessing for sharing.
