Alice Elmina Bailey Stay's Patriarchal Blessing

A Patriarchal blessing upon the head of Alice Elmina Bailey Stay, born March 31, 1877, at Mill Creek, Salt Lake Co., Utah.

JOSEPH A. West, PATRIARCH OF LOS ANGELES STAKE
Los Angeles, California, July 2, 1936

A Patriarchal blessing upon the head of Alice Elmina Bailey Stay, born March 31, 1877, at Mill Creek, Salt Lake Co., Utah. Now residing at 3329 East Flower Street, Huntington Park, California. Daughter of George B. Bailey and Elizabeth Young.

Sister Alice Stay, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the authority vested in me as a patriarch in his church, I lay my hands upon your head, and give unto you a fathers blessing, even a patriarchal blessing, after the order of His patriarchal priesthood.

I bless you sister Stay and say unto you the Lord is pleased with your life, and with your labor here upon earth and he is willing and anxious to give unto you every good gift that your heart can desire in righteousness.

In giving you this patriarchal blessing, I ask our Father in heaven to bless you from the crown of your head to the soles of your feet that your body may be cleansed and your blood purified that you may be in a fit condition to have joy and happiness and great pleasure here upon the earth.

I bless you with the spirit of studying the word of wisdom that you will not only understand it yourself, but that you may teach it to your family, to your neighbors and to those with whom you may associate. I say unto you that this is one of the greatest laws which God has given to his children in these the last days.

You are of the house of Joseph, and the blood stream has come down through the ages from the tribe of Ephraim who was a son of Joseph who was sold into Egypt.

The Lord has a great mission for you to perform. You were in the council in heaven and there made promises to the Lord that you would perform the mission which he gave you in the heavens to perform here upon earth. This mission you are in part fulfilling in raising your family and teaching them the principles of the gospel and of life and salvation. There is however a greater work yet undone, that of saving the souls of your family and of your progenitors who have lived and died here upon this earth without receiving the gospel. I bless you that you may take great joy and satisfaction in hunting up the geneology and doing the work for your family. This particular work can only be done through you and through your efforts.

I bless you that you may be an instrument in correcting the morals and strengthening the virtues of community life; that thru your efforts the standard of women may be raised and elevated to a higher plane, for I say unto you in the name of the Lord that this is the greatest age that has ever been in this world for the advancement of the cause of women.

I bless you with a desire to study the gospel and to understand its principles, and I say unto you that there is no greater labor than that of saving the souls of men, both the living and the dead.

Sister Stay, I say unto you that the thoughts and words in this blessing shall recur again and again to you as you go through life. I bless you that you may be encouraged and feel blessed in the great work you are performing. Never feel disheartened or feel that you are not receiving in full for all that you are giving, for you shall yet sit with the family of Abraham in the councils of heaven and be crowned among the noble and great ones.

I seal upon your head every blessing that has been given unto you and I promise you in the name of the Lord that his angels are watching over you and are guarding you and protecting you from the adversary.

These blessings are predicated upon your faith in God and in his resurrection.

I seal you up to come forth in the morning of the first resurrection; sealing upon your head every blessing that has been given to Abraham, Issac, Jacob and I do it in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, AMEN.
