"Focail do a Chara" is Gaelic for "Words for a Friend." I write about my experiences -- in my study of death and dying, in my teaching; in my spiritual seeking; in my call for social justice and compassionate living. I hope these words find you, friend, and bless you.

Holy one to whom I pray,
here, there, and everywhere.
May my heart see the holiness of this and all realms,
and remain awestruck at the wonder of the earth.
I visualize the day
when our world will be filled with the radiance of divine love,
a place where everyone follows love’s perfect desires for all
and where perfect loving grace and peace reigns.
May each of us have what we need each day
and may those of us who have plenty,
share with brothers and sisters who have less.
May I reconcile with those whom I have hurt
in thoughts, words, and actions,
and those who have hurt me
in thoughts, words, and actions.
May I focus my sight on the pure light of pure love
and may this light of love burn off all manners of evil,
that threaten to block the flow of love in this world.
