Publisher Comments:

Source of all blessings, you bless us with dreams-dreams while we sleep and dreams in our most wakeful moments. May I be responsive to both forms of dreams and pass these blessings on by living a life that is faithful to their guidance.

 

From beloved author Brother David Steindl-Rast comes this beautiful collection of original blessings meant to guide readers through each day with wisdom and spirit.

 

This gift book of ninety-nine personal and original blessings from Brother David Steindl-Rast, known for his pioneering work in interfaith dialogue, marks the first time the member of the Benedictine Order of Catholic monks has crafted a series of prayers for the general reader-from Catholics to Protestants, Jews and Muslims, agnostics and uncertain. Blessings are life-giving only as long as we pass them on, so this book is meant to be shared with friends, family, coworkers, strangers, and anyone in need of a few words of inspiration and guidance.

This is truly a wonderful book. Each blessing so beautifully worded. A great place to start meditation. These prayers of gratitude really touch my heart. I use them to start my day right and to end it peacefully and gratefully. It makes for relaxed, productive days and wonderful restful nights. These lovely meditations are easily accessible to folks of all religious backgrounds. Thank you to Image Publishing for sharing this beautiful book with me.
