Blessed you Be Dear Child, on this sacred eve.

May you know that you are loved, more than you will ever know.

May you trust that you are being held in the loving arms of all that is, even as you feel swallowed in by this hungry world.

And as your pain is soothed, let us whisper into your heart and may you listen to our words:

“The time has come to ease the war.

No more you against them.

No more one against many.

For the war of one is the world’s war.”

And as you dance this sacred night away, may the spirit of those who walked the earth before your time, join you in celebrating the life that never ends.

Light up your heart on this Samhain,

Antonia Lyons
