Blessings Meditation by Br. David Steindhl-Rast

Another way of thinking about the resurrection of Christ

In his beloved book 99 Blessings: An Invitation to Life, Br. David Steindl-Rast writes, “Blessing, rightly understood, is the invisible bloodstream pulsating through the universe — alive and life-giving.” Each and every moment, we can cultivate deeper awareness of the blessing of simply being alive, greater appreciation for all that works and is sufficient in our lives, and wonder and awe for the miracles that are within and around us at all times. As the great Jewish sage Abraham Joshua Heschel says, “Just to live is holy, just to be is a blessing.”
