Reflection

“May I glimpse the image of God deep within me, the threads of eternal glory woven into every man and woman. May I catch sight of the mystery of the human
spirit fashioned in your likeness…and in glimpsing these threads of light…let me be recalled to the strength and beauty of your image in every living being.”
Celtic Benedictions
