Blessing of the Stars — Guest Post — Benediction from Argentina

My joyful thanks to Gerardo Oberman for this blessing which takes me into the New Year with great hope!

Bendición de los astros

Que la luna que iluminó
la noche de los pastores de Belén,
abrace tus temores y tus luchas,
renueve tus anhelos de vida buena
y tu esperanza en la llegada de la paz.
Que la estrella que guió
a quienes migraron de tierras lejanas,
oriente tus búsquedas
y te conduzca siempre al enuentro
con el Dios revelado en la fragilidad.
Y que el sol de la justicia divina
brille anunciando el día nuevo,
el tiempo de la solidaridad,
el momento de la transformación,
la hora prometida de la plenitud.

Blessing of the Stars

May the moon that illuminated
the night of the shepherds of Bethlehem,
embrace your fears and your struggles,
renew your yearnings for a good life
and your hope in the arrival of peace.
May the star that guided
those who migrated from distant lands guide
your searches
and lead you always to the entrust
with the God revealed in fragility.
And may the sun of divine justice
shine forth, announcing the new day,
the time of solidarity,
the moment of transformation,
the promised hour of fulfillment.
