Healing and Strength: a blessing for you

A blessing for body and soul.

The butterfly: symbol of the resurrection.

May God the Father bless you,
God the Son heal you,
God the Holy Spirit give you strength.

May God the holy and undivided Trinity
guard your body,
save your soul, and
bring you safely
to that heavenly country
where peace and harmony reign
for ever and ever. Amen.

Adapted from a blessing in Common Worship, p. 38

Be well. Do good. Pay attention. Keep learning.
