An Irish Blessing for the Home

by Welleran Poltarnees
 

The Irish have a great gift for blessing.

They ask for luck. Blessings are premised on the belief that putting wishes into words increases the probability of their fulfilment.

Overview

The Irish have a great gift for blessing. Their traditions include blessings upon myriad small daily actions and objects as well as blessings for all the major celebrations and trials of human existence. They always wish for good. They ask for luck. Blessings are premised on the belief that putting wishes into words increases the probability of their fulfilment. There is also the assumption that we live in a sentient universe, where prayers and blessings are worth offering. The blessing in this book is traditional, and was found framed in many Irish homes in the last century.

Meet the Author

WELLERAN POLTARNEES has a lifelong love of gardens. His first memory is falling out of his baby carriage and landing on a bed of odorous white flowers which not only kept him from injury, but made the experience a sensual delight. He collects books about, and pictures of, gardens — but there are few timeless things that he does not so honor. He uses a book called Great Gardens of the World as a guide whenever he travels, and, with the exception of the Boboli Gardens in Florence, which came highly recommended and which he found monotonous — the gardens have always refreshed him. His favorite time for gardens is night. His favorite garden music is Manuel De Falla's "Nights in the Gardens of Spain", and his favorite garden poem is "The Garden" by Andrew Marvell.
