We recently heard from Nell Wulff in St. Louis, Missouri, and Moe Nieman in Cincinnati, Ohio, who together wrote a blessing for face masks. They agreed to share it and invited us to do so. You may want to keep a copy next to your masks, as a reminder of the good that they do.
The Blessing of the Masks
by Moe Nieman and Nell Wulff
May our Good and Loving Creator bless these masks and the hands that made them
May these coverings of love and smiles reveal eyes that speak and cry
May they speak for the heart within, beating for life and breath
May these masks be as life-giving as trees
May masks mirror our kinship with Sister, Mother Earth
