Blessing generator

As a priest, you are occasionally asked to "say a prayer" at some fairly secular occasion. You have two choices here. One is to launch gung-ho into something about the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Holy Angels. People outside the Church usually appreciate this, it being what they would expect anyway from a Catholic priest.

The other choice may be recommended by the cautious: "discretion is the better part of valour". So they urge you to say something conciliatory and non-committal. The trouble is, you may not be too good at doing "bland and wet".

Well help is now at hand with the Worldwide Blessing Generator. Its creators say,
In an effort to balance the negativity of the world, we have created the WBG. It mixes blessings and prayers from all world religions and gives a random hybrid of spiritual goodness.
All you need to do is click on the "bless me" button and a random blessing gets generated for that special occasion when you are lost for words. Here is a sample:

May your prayers be deeper than words,
and all of your relationships be blessed
with balance and harmony.
Let all your things have their places;
let each part of your business have its time.
Move and collaborate.


Just make sure you have a box of tissues ready for anyone who is overcome by the random hybrid of spiritual goodness.
