Awake, O powerhouse of faith,
Awake, O woman you are born to take,
that God has bestowed upon,
Everything God has filled in your heart,
The tremendous power to win the hearts,
The amazing shower of love that you inspire,
And the unbelievable art of making everything true,
Unlock the power that God has given you,
Prove your worth, prove your existence,
This one is an opportunity to make it a truth.

Make me strong in spirit
Courageous in action
Gentle of heart
Let me act in wisdom
Conquer my fear and doubt
Discover my own hidden gifts
Meet others with compassion
Be a source of healing energies
And face each day with hope and joy

The Present Moment Prayer

My God, when I look into the future, I am frightened,
But why plunge into the future?
Only the present moment is precious to me,
As the future may never enter my soul at all.
It is no longer in my power to change, correct, or add to the past;
For neither sages nor prophets could do that.
And so what the past has embraced, I must entrust to God.

O present moment, you belong to me, whole and entire.
I desire to use you as best I can.
And although I am weak and small,
You grant me the grace of Your omnipotence.
And so, trusting in Your mercy,
I walk through life like a little child,
Offering You each day this heart
Burning with love for Your greater Glory.

—St. Faustina

Rituals of Life

I invite you to enter for a moment
into Sacred Time and Space,
into a way of seeing that is broad and spacious.
See this Day, from the time you arose this morning
until you sleep this evening, as one Ceremony,
divided into small and familiar rituals,
your Heart as the Altar.
You, part of the Cycles of Light and Darkness.
Now begin to see your Life,
from the moment of your Conception
until the time of your Death
as one long, continuous Ceremony,
filled with many rituals,
some familiar, some unknown and challenging.
Your Home and all Your Relations, the Altar.

You, part of many Seasons and Cycles.

An Angel to Protect You: Irish Prayer for a Newborn

adorable-asleep-baby-2111997
May strong arms hold you
Caring hearts tend you
And may love await you at every step.
May you bring light to the home
Warmth to the heart
Joy to the soul
And love to the lives you touch.
May God surround this child
And bless this day.
May you have a sunbeam to warm you
Good luck to charm you
An angel to protect you
Laughter to cheer you
And faithful friends near you.
May God hold you
In the hollow of his hand
Forever and ever.

Let me always insist on miracles to
celebrate love.
And when all I love on earth
lies lifeless in my arms
let me offer it to you with such freedom of heart

That I am swept up into the heavens. Amen.
