Circling Prayer – Christine Valters Paintner

“This is one of the earliest know caim [encircling] prayers, attributed to St. Columcille: ‘Bless to me the sky that is above me. Bless to me the ground that is beneath me. Bless to me the friends who are around me. Bless to me the love of the Three, deep within me and encircling me. Amen.’”
