A Blessing for the Masks

Great Physician, Giver of All Life,
may this mask I wear show your true face:
a face of mercy and compassion
a face that loves others above myself
a face that protects the vulnerable and weak.

As I wear this mask, save and protect me
from danger that may come my way.
As I wear this mask, save and protect others
from danger I may send their way,
even without meaning to.

As once you hid your face from Moses,
in order to reveal the glory of your presence,
teach us to hide our outward faces,
to reveal our inward love for the world,
and the glory of your presence in us. Amen.
