A blessing

“May all your expectations
be frustrated.
May all your plans be thwarted.
May all of your desires
be withered into nothingness,
that you may experience the powerlessness and
poverty of a child and sing and dance
in the love of God the Father,
the Son and the Spirit.”

Blessing given to Henri Nouwen by his spiritual mentor
