Treasure Unlocked By Love | John Philip Newell | Celtic Spirituality | Heartbeat

e_DSC8694That you have made us in the image of your own mystery

thanks be to you, O God.

That in the soul of every human being

there are depths beyond naming

and heights greater than knowing

thanks be to you.

Grant us the grace of inner sight this day

that we may see you as the Self within all selves.

Grant us the grace of love this day

that amidst the pain and disfigurement of life

We may find the treasure that is unlocked by love,

that amidst the pain and disfigurement of our own lives I may know the richness that lies buried in the human soul.
