Blessed Source

From Brother Wayne Teasdale:

O Blessed Source, eternal Lord of creation,
sustainer of all worlds,
you embrace the whole cosmos within yourself,
for everything exists in you.

Let your winds come and breathe your everlasting Spirit in us.
Let us inhale your divine Spirit and be inspired.
Enlighten us in your truth.
Pour your grace into our hearts.
Wipe away our sin and all negativity.

Transform us into your Love,
and let us radiate that Love to all others.
Inflame us with your unending life.
Dissolve our limited way of being.
Elevate us into your divine Life.
Give us your capacity to share that Life with everyone.

Shape us in your wisdom.
Grant us your joy and laughter.
Let us become that divine wisdom, sensitivity,
laughter and joy for all beings.

Let us realize fully that we are members
of that Sacred Community
with all humankind, with other species,
with nature and the entire cosmos.

Grant us a heart that can
embrace them all in you.

Let us be in communion with you
forever in the bliss of that Love:
the Love that sustains all
and transforms all
into your Divine Radiance.
