Adapted from Jim Cotter’s Service of My Love – an excellent resource book for Civil Partnerships, but used in this context as the final blessing for Blesséd’s Mass of the Edge on Monday Night at Greenbelt 2010

The Lord be with you

And also with you

The Blessing of God be with us,

Father and Mother,

Sustainer of our earth

Source of all that is, and shall be.

The Blessing of God be with us

The Universal Christ

the Risen and Glorious Loved One

and our Friend

The Blessing of God be with us

Spirit spreading love and joy in our hearts

giving hope to the battered ones

inspiring peace and justice for the little ones

For we have been nourished

by the Bread of Life

we have been quickened

by the Life-blood of the Universe

With courage and hope let us continue on

our journey.

…and the blessing of God almighty,

the +Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,

be among you and remain with you always.
