Easter Sunday Blessing

Posted by Caitriona Considine on

Join us for a Moher Moment 

Some Meanderings, Memories and More… from Moher Cottage, St. Brigid's Well, Cliffs of Moher in Co.Clare, Ireland

Lighting a candle for all our frontline workers and you all this Easter Sunday here at St. Brigid’s Well.

Hoping you all are well.

 

My uncle Paschal sent me this Easter blessing from the Irish poet John O’Donohue yesterday, so thought timely to share with you all:

"On this Easter morning, let us look again at the lives we have been so generously given and let us let fall away the useless baggage that we carry -- old pains, old habits, old ways of seeing and feeling -- and let us have the courage to begin again. Life is very short, and we are no sooner here than it is time to depart again, and we should use to the full the time that we still have.
We don’t realise all the good we can do. A kind encouraging word or a helping hand can bring many a person through dark valleys in their lives.
We weren’t put here to make money or to acquire status or reputation. 
We were sent here to search for the light of Easter in our hearts and when we find it, we are meant to give it away generously.
The dawn that is rising this Easter morning is a gift to our hearts and we are meant to celebrate it and to carry away from this holy, ancient place the gifts of healing and light and the courage of a new beginning.”

-- John O'Donohue, Easter Sunrise service at Corcomroe Abbey

 

Wishing you all the best this Easter Sunday.

Tomorrow I'll share some photos from the beautiful Corcomroe Abbey mentioned in John O'Donohue's Easter blessing.

Take Care all until we travel again.
