celtic newborn blessing

We continue to have a number of babes born into our circle of friends and family.

Here is a lovely Celtic Newborn Blessing adapted from the Northumbrian Book of Daily prayer...
The blessing of Christ
comes to your home in this little child
We bless you and pray
Peace of the Son of Peace fill heart and hearth
Now and each hour.
Grow gently little _____________
Christ be near you
Now and each
Day of your Life
In the Name of
God the Father Almighty
Jesus Christ His Son,
The Blessed Holy Spirit
The Sacred Three in One
