Beltane 2014

Beltane 2014

PostAuthor: Tylluan » Tue May 13, 2014 3:22 pm

Belated Blessings to you all this Beltane.

Bless, O threefold true and bountiful,
Myself, my spouse, my children.
Bless everything within my dwelling and in my possession,
Bless the kine and crops, the flocks and corn,
From Samhain Eve to Beltane Eve,
With goodly progress and gentle blessing,
From sea to sea, and every river mouth,
From wave to wave, and base of waterfall.

Be the Maiden, Mother, and Crone,
Taking possession of all to me belonging.
Be the Horned God, the Wild Spirit of the Forest,
Protecting me in truth and honor.
Satisfy my soul and shield my loved ones,
Blessing every thing and every one,
All my land and my surroundings.
Great gods who create and bring life to all, I ask for your blessings on this day of fire.

)O(

Beltain blessings to you too Tylluan, and to all.

This is a truly beautiful blessing/prayer... is it related to the Carmina Gadelica?

Hi Morwenn

Yes, you are quite correct, here is what the official blurb says:-

In the Carmina Gadelica, folklorist Alexander Carmichael shared with readers hundreds of poems and prayers that he had collected from residents in various areas of Scotland. There is a lovely prayer in the Gaelic entitled simply Am Beannachadh Bealltain (The Beltane Blessing), which pays tribute to the Holy Trinity of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. This is a much shorter version, and has been adapted for a Pagan-friendly format.
May your summers and winters be short, springs be mild and autumn reaping plentiful.

Now I know why it looked so familiar: a few years ago I wrote a variation of this blessing in my prayer book! It's so nice to see it here again :D

It's been many years since I read The Carmina Gadelica, I still keep a copy of it. It's such a beautiful collection of prayers and blessings, so vivid; rich and simple at the same time, but always pure and from the heart.

blessings,
Morwenn
