Eve kindly sent us a Summer Solstice Prayer (21st June: this Sunday) from the Druid tradition:

The Summer Solstice approaches, the longest day of the year. At the Summer Solstice the Sun is at the zenith of his power. This a time of celebrating abundance and fertility in all things, as we look around us at the world clad in all her summer glory. This time is known in the Druid tradition as Alban Hefin – the Light of the Shore or the Light of Summer.

 

A closing Summer Solstice prayer from the Druid tradition:

May the Light of the inner sun shine on our paths.

May the sun that is the source of all life bless us and our families, our people and our Land.

Let light flow forth from this time and place to every radiant, hoping heart, and to all the lands and peoples of the Earth, her lakes, rivers and seas, her mountains and her caves, her deserts and her forests.

May all beings on Earth be strengthened by this Light.

We give thanks to the sun for its blessing of Light and Life.

 

Lucy kindly sent us the following prayer from Richard Rohr, a Franciscan monk who lives in the USA:

O Great Love, thank you for living and loving in us and through us.

May all that we do flow from our deep connection with you and all beings.

Help us become a community that vulnerably shares each other’s burdens and the weight of glory.

Listen to our hearts’ longings for the healing of our world.

[Please add your own intentions.] . . .

Knowing you are hearing us better than we are speaking, we offer these prayers in all the holy names of God, amen.”
