Daily Inspiration: Luck 'O the Irish Blessing

Some say Maggie is the luckiest woman in the world. Others would say she’s blessed. It’s a fine line between luck and blessings when you’re Irish. Maggie’s house is filled with shamrocks and crosses. She wears green and she’s true blue to her church. But her most precious treasure is the one that combines her ethnic pride with her religious devotion: The Irish Blessing. The elegantly framed verse...


holds a place of honor in her front room. It’s a constant reminder and source of joy to her.  Even though she knows it's not words on paper, but God who’s the source of her blessed life; she’s still just a little superstitious.

You see it everywhere; saints on key chains, a mezuzah on a doorpost. Religious objects that start out in a Godly spirit, and end up with as much holiness as a lucky charm. 

Maggie wants to get back to her roots. Instead of reading the Irish Blessing, and admiring it’s beauty, she prays with it. It’s awe-inspiring how a fresh look at an old prayer can open up the heart and bring it closer to God. Lucky for you, blessings abound when you take the time to notice.
