An Irish Blessing

The Irish Blessing will be released on Sunday at 11.00 am. 
You may have heard about the UK Blessing, which got lots of social media attention a few weeks ago.  Church musicians, mostly young, from across the UK collaborated remotely on a contemporary version of the Aaronic Blessing (if you search for The UK Blessing it will come up on YouTube).  
So this is an Irish initiative, inspired by the UK Blessing but featuring Irish musicians and a specially arranged version of our own Be Thou My Vision.  It is intended simply as a sung blessing on the nation, in what has been for many a very hard and disturbing time. 
One of the organisers is Philip McKinley, whom I knew as a student when I worked in the chaplaincy at TCD, and who is also one of the founders of the Discovery Gospel Choir.  He is very gifted, and I expect The Irish Blessing will be one of the unexpected blessings of this  Pentecost Sunday.   
If you want to watch the launch, you should be able to find it at @BlessingIrish  or  theirishblessing.com.  It will of course also be available afterwards, if the time doesn’t suit your other plans for reflection and prayer or online worship at home.
