Dismissal at the end of  the Ecumenical Celebration in Merville, France, as part of the annual conference 2015

Now return into your own life again,
to the ones you love and understand
and to the ones you have trouble understanding,
go to all of them,
and share what you have received in this celebration
of God's Word of surrender and unconditional love.

Let us therefore bless each other,
holding each other's right shoulder,
and singing the blessing of St. Patrick.

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of Her/His hand.
