A Pentecost Blessing from Brazil

Many thanks for these words of blessing from Luis Carlos Ramos, which do give us the warming joy of fire, the whispering gentleness of wind. They are originally published on Red Crearte. Sarah Lombardi-Tobin offers the English translation.

Blessing of the Word, Wind, and Fire

May the wind blow softly on your shoulders
always bringing the scent of peace;
May the fire warm your heart
always leaving it full of tenderness;
May the word that leaves your lips,
and those that visit your ears,
always send and bring
the sound of a blessing!

Luiz Carlos Ramos

Bênção da Palavra, do Vento e do Fogo

Que o vento sopre suave sobre os seus ombros
trazendo sempre o aroma da paz;
Que o fogo aqueça seu coração
deixando-o sempre pleno de ternura;
Que a palavra que sair dos seus lábios,
e as que visitarem os seus ouvidos,
levem e tragam sempre
o som de uma bênção!

Luiz Carlos Ramos
