A Traditional Irish Blessing: May The Road Rise To Meet You. Go N-éirí An Bóthar Leat.

While the World appears crazier and crazier
(Parish Priests banning Traditional Latin Masses "because they are DIVISIVE"
and Black Masses being approved, and held, in Oklahoma, United States of America),
just get your Missal and say your Prayers.

And give this Traditional Irish Blessing to your family, relatives and friends.

"May The Road Rise To Meet You".
A Traditional Irish Greeting.

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the Sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

Go n-éirí an bóthar leat,
Go raibh an ghaoth go brách ag do chúl,
Go lonraí an ghrian go te ar d'aghaidh,
Go dtite an bháisteach go mín ar do pháirceanna,
Agus go mbuailimid le chéile aris,
Go gcoinní Dia i mbos A láimhe thú.
