A Prayer for St. Bartholomew’s

The St. Bart’s Blessing

My friends, life is short
and we do not have much time
to gladden the hearts
of those who travel with us,
so be quick to love
and make haste to be kind.
And rest assured that God
is infinitely more concerned
with the promise of our future
than the mistakes of our past.
And the grace of our Savior Jesus Christ,
and the love of God,
and the communion of the Holy Spirit,
be with you all, now and always.
