“Human presence is a creative and turbulent sacrament, a visible sign of invisible grace”. John O'Donohue

For Solitude

May you recognise in your life the presence,
Power and light of your soul.

May you realise that you are never alone,
That your soul in its brightness and belonging
Connects you intimately with the rhythm of the universe.

May you have respect for your individuality and difference.

May you realise that the shape of your soul is unique,
That you have a special destiny here,
That behind the facade of your life
There is something beautiful and eternal happening.

May you learn to see yourself
With the same delight,
Pride and expectation
With which God sees you in every moment.

From "Benedictus" by John O'Donohue
